Here's the ones I know off the top of my head

They don't have a separate details page, but scroll about 2/3 of the way down the page and there's a tab for detail parts.

Also, Jimmy Deignan sells the old FSM detail parts on eBay, but only as sets. He has individual castings, but apparently doesn't sell them on eBay. He does have them available at the various Model RR shows he attends. At any rate, here's a link to his eBay store
https://www.ebay.com/str/Railroad-Kits?_trksid=p2047675.l2563

A great variety of castings. Good luck in your search.

Kit Building / Re: Metcalfe Manor Farm House - a paper kit
« on: January 18, 2020, 12:23:42 PM »
Jaime,

We all know wooden structures can warp over time. I wonder what these paper/cardboard ones will do. Have you given any thought to adding wood bracing to the building before assembling it? Would it help prevent future warping? Just a thought.

Residents of Central New York panic, run around screaming. There's a large yellow thing in the sky surrounded by blue!. It hurts the eyes to look at it. All are praying for the gunmetal gray skies and cold white flakes to return to us!!!!!!!!!

According to the run times listed on the website, no new content. They are the Allen Keller videos originally released on VHS. Transferred to DVD, so the quality is eh...., but if you don't have them, they are well worth the price......IMHO.

It was on display at the Expo and is still listed on their website as available.

Been through all of the JS kits and that wall is not in any of them. Probably something King George intended for a kit, but never used. Looks like Tom Boyd found the errant wall in Hal's picture. If you could find the other two (assuming the two end walls are the same), it would make a great start of a Railroads Kits kit, or great casting for us scratchbuilders.

Looks like the fish over the door of the "Skootz" building in the JS-7 Houligans Alley kit.
