All customers – please be advised:

With the exception of details, figures and 'ready to assemble' kits such as Ameritowne, DPM, Woodland Scenics etc. which are shipped within 2-3 days from receipt of order there is no stock on custom built structures. So far I am booked through 2018 for custom product. New jobs will be scheduled for Jan 2019.

All wood and plastic structures built by Model Structures are basically one of a kind custom built and assembled from scratch. While worth the wait they will take time to build. Lead time for construction will vary depending upon order backlog.

At receipt of order or if you would like to email me before order placement asking about lead time I will be happy to give an estimate on start time. I will do my best to keep each customer informed of the situation and as always keep them fully informed on progress once construction begins.

Welcome to Model Structures for Model Railroads

Custom built plastic and wood structures for your model railroad layout

We specialize in custom designed plastic and wood O Scale trackside structures plus wood bridges and decking for HO/On30/S/O scale and custom . All products are fully assembled for all your railroad needs.

All our O-scale track side structures are custom designed. These structures are made from heavy duty ABS and styrene plastics or the same wood we use for our bridges and decking. We offer locomotive sheds,grain silos, hopper car loaders, water towers, tank depots, tank farms, tank stands, industrial tanks, service platforms and RR/industrial/city street signs and a fully equipped oil refinery. All wood based designs have been collected into a category called "Steam Era Classics". Almost all track side structures can be modified to you specific needs.  If you don't see the structure you want please contact me. I will work with you to design the product you want.
The customer may choose decals from a selection of railroad/industrial names or ask for custom designs.

We build model railroad truss, girder, deck bridges, and trestle decking for HO, On30, S and O scale model railroads with a very dense naturally black wood. The type of wood used produces an extremely sturdy structure giving a much closer look to a real railroad bridge than other lighter colored woods. All structures will fit the appropriate HO/On30/S/O scale setup including track with built-in ballast. Please browse through our products and remember custom lengths are available!

Please visit the Photo Gallery to see ideas about mixing and matching various structures plus customer application photos.
