Welcome to Allegheny Junction,an Eastern outpost in the world of Narrow Gauge Modeling

    Welcome to Allegheny Junction, a place where all Eastern Narrow Gauge converges. Our goal is to offer built-up structures and craftsman style kits of Eastern Narrow Gauge rolling stock. That being said it gives me great pleasure to announce the re-issue of CROSSROADS MODELS wonderful laser cut line of equipment from the Waynesburg and Washington Railroad in On3/On30.  http://knucklepincom.ipage.com/store/page3.html

     We now have in stock Coach Body Kit – 01 which will build W&W coach 5 or 6. These coaches were built by Jackson and Sharp for the W&W in 1892. Since Jackson and Sharp claimed to be the largest builder of narrow gauge equipment in 1892 they were found on many roads such as the Cincinnati Lebanon & Northern  and the Pittsburgh & Castle Shannon. Similar cars were used on the D&RGW.These particular prototypes remained in service till the late 1920’s when passenger service was discontinued. Whether you build this kit as intended or use it for kitbashing you’ll find it to be a great value.

   Also in stock is CROSSROADS MODELS KIT – 02 . This car was originally built by Billmeyer and Small Car Works and is a prime example of how prototype equipment changed to fit the needs of the railroad. This kit can be built into three different versions and all are prototypical. The car started it’s career as the first coach number 2 in 1877. Then in 1878 it was renumbered as coach number 3. An identical car was built by Billmeyer and Small in 1883 as the third coach number 2 which was converted to coach/RPO number2 in 1897. Whew,you got all that. Simply put, you have enough parts here to create about any car your road needs .

   All CROSSROAD MODEL kits include such details as handrails, car steps and platform rails  that were used by the W&W. A new feature is pre-shaped roofs to help ease construction. Many modelers have said that they consider pre-forming the roofs to be a deterrent in assembling craftsman kits. We just made things a little easier.
