supplies, and photos related to model railroad scenery and structures.
Learn techniques for building model train
layouts, applying cedar shingles, constructing wood log cars, painting

and narrow gauge. The SSM Gallery includes photographs of some of the most
famous steam railroads in the world.
Our SSM Products include realistic scale glass,

rough lumber, log loads with chain, sound cams, chain link fences, snow fences,
logcar kits, natural wood stumps, and scale turf. They reflect 40
years' experience in model railroading, and have been instrumental in numerous
awards, including Master Model Railroad designation by the NMRA. Nickel plating
service is also available.
