Handcar shed drawings

Handcarshed

Every railroad needs myriad small storage sheds along the right-of-way and in engine terminals and yards. When I required a small trackside shed for my freelanced On30 (also known as On21⁄2) North Cariboo Ry., I decided it should show its age. I figured the shed would have been built before the turn of the last century, at least 35 years ago relative to my modeling era, for the track maintenance gang to store its tools and supplies. The rails and wide doors were included to accommodate a handcar and later a motorized speeder. The shed’s roof sags slightly. I built the shed without interior detail.

I built the model as a styrene shell on a wood foundation with individual board siding and commercial windows and roofing. I hope you enjoy building this little shed and it finds a place on your layout.
