Does anyone know where I can get a kit to built one of these?

Walthers makes one that is a scaled down version of a defunct company in Montgomery, Alabama. It mainly looks like two towers and a shed for 18-wheelers--just like the prototype. The prototype had only one primary track with two switches for a run-around track.

I forgot the name of Walther's model.

I plan to make one some day.

I scratch built one with some Evergreen stock and some 3/4" PVC pipe I had laying around:




It's an easy project, and pretty cheap too!

Over the years, I've seen (I think in HO scale) the Medusa Cement Co. and the Hoffa Cement Co. I didn't see either one listed in the 2004 N scale catalog, but if someone other than Walthers makes the kits, no wonder I couldn't find 'em.

Hmm... how about finding
me some more termites...?

Walthers USED to make one. They are one of the more difficult to find, popping up on Ebay only every now and then.

Yes it's true, I'm back, but I still have no idea where I went

I bought two of the kits from Walthers when I first got into Nscale. They were the Medusa Cement Co. They are out of production now. They are a real problem kit. The silo parts were so warped that I tossed 'em and used pvc pipe with the silo caps that came with the kit. They were over priced as well. I think my LHS wanted $35.00 for them. When he went Tango Uniform, I got them for $15.00@ at his "Going to work at Walmart" sale.

You can't always get what you want...
