Help on slate shingles
« on: January 10, 2018, 07:11:53 AM »
I am going to need 2oo sq. inches of slate shingles. Are there any reasonably priced one or should I make them?  I am building John H. Murray & son coal pictures on kit building forum.  Thanks

Rick,
I am partial to the slate shingles offered by B.E.S.T., they look good and are priced reasonably, IMO.

South River Model Works (although Bob has retired) is still offering some roofing materials that they had left over from their many kit runs, I think. Slate included. Check out this link:

Bob,


I agree with Vince re: SRMW Shingles. I have build many of Bob's structures and several scratch built structures, many of which have the slate shingles from SRMW. Bob produces a quality product.

I think it's Bollinger Edgerly Scale Trains. Check out this link:
