Video summary: An overview of Little Buildings, Big Stories!

Little Buildings, Big Stories!

My desire to have a shop to sell HO Scale model railroad buildings dates back to 1975. I had my first model railroad layout at the time. While traveling with my Dad to Clear Lake, Texas, we drove through Seabrook on Old Galveston Highway. I saw a building known to the locals as "Curley's Corner." When I saw it, I thought "if I ever sold model railroading items, a model of that building would be one of them." It was small and unique, with it's plants as a parapet around the roof, incorporating various Spanish architectural elements into the walls.

Not until I built my second layout in 2012, would I have the tools I needed to create Curley's Corner at last. It is gone now, but it lives on my layout.

All of these buildings are suitable for home pikes, or for tight places, or background buildings on a club layout. All are unique, hand assembled at the time you order, yet offered at "Plasticville" mass produced prices.
