HO Scale: Jacobs Welding Engineering
TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK
HO Scale Kit: Assembly and finishing required
The Jacobs Welding Engineering building was built in circa 1950 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The design is typical of North American small industry shops in the 50s and 60s. Jacobs Welding was a welding engineering school, job shop and machine shop. The prototype building stood until just recently when it was torn down to make way for urban renewal. Fortunately, good images of the real building remain on GoogleEarth and can be found by looking at Boyle Street, Edmonton, Alberta.
This building would be at home in any urban North American railroad setting from the 1950s through to present day.
This HO Scale kit is reproduced from photos, memories and discussions with my father as it was his and my grandfathers building!
