The Model - Structures 
If you have an interest in acquiring any of the items shown in this website, contact me at and I will do my best to accommodate your needs, although I do intend to continue building this model railroad in the future.


A substantial portion of my structures were moved from my previous model railroad ( and can be seen in that previous environment by going to that website.  I have changed a few of the signs and done some other minor modifications to more appropriately fit in with the theoretical location of this model railroad in New Mexico instead of Colorado.  Many of the other structures have found a new home on other modelers' layouts.
In addition, I have pre-purchased other suitable kits in advance if it seemed they would fit into the new model railroad.
I love to build structures, and as a civil engineer and construction executive before retirement, I get to carry this forward into this, my last railroad.  Photos of these structures, built and unbuilt, can be seen in the appropriate web pages in this website.


I'm showing below photos of almost all of my built structures, most of which were transferred from my previous layout, which modeled another portion of the Denver and Rio Grande Western and parts of the Rio Grande Southern.   A video of that previous layout can be seen by clicking on the Video tab above. 

Since I demolished this previous layout, I've been purchasing new structures (mostly high-end craftsman kits and background flats) and will also add those as time permits at the bottom of this page before and/or after they are built and installed.  If you have any interest in them at that time we can discuss.

A significant number of the existing built structures will be made available for purchase as I build the newer and more appropriate unbuilt structures for The Turquoise Line.

In general, these will be posted in the "For Sale" tab and an appropriate notice placed in the Sn3 list.
