Swanson's Lunch Stand (N-HO-O)


This little kit was based on an article by Sam Swanson.  We pictured it as something you’d see at the end of the line, possibly in a “Trolley Park”… set-up  some fruits & vegetables around it and you have a farm stand.  The fact is, these are almost as common today (especially in rural areas) as they were in the 1920’s.  Our friend Bill Brown beath the heck out of his and placed it on a busy street as a newspaper stand.  Get the idea ?… it’s the interpretive part of modeling that makes it fun !

Clyde Queens’ work is consistent & his style obviously his own.  Swanson’s is shown here on Clydes’ On30 layout… Photo by Bruce Oberleitner
