New Product - Hydrocracker Reactor

A new structure has been added to our Oil refinery series. The reactor is usually associated with a distillation tower. Hydrocracking is a catalytic cracking process assisted by the presence of added hydrogen gas. Feedstock is usually high-boiling point, high molecular weight hydrocarbons such as gas oil from upstream distillation towers. Heat and hydrogen are used to 'crack' the high molecular weight hydrocarbons into lighter fractions. The product is then sent to a distillation tower by way of a separator (not yet designed) that separates the hydrogen from the product and sends it back to the reactor. The chief products from the distillation process are jet fuel, diesel and kerosene. The reactor has a three inch diameter and is approximately 12 inches high.

Welcome to Model Structures for Model Railroads

Custom built plastic and wood structures for your model railroad layout

We specialize in custom wood bridges and decking for HO/On30/S/O scale and custom designed plastic and wood O Scale trackside structures. 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. 
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.

​Simply navigate to our Products web page (see tab at top of page).​

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.

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 back log. Word is getting around! We are busy. My apologies - please note for now all new orders won't start until April 2016.

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.
