If anyone models say between 1870 and 1910 Bitter Creek Models is in business.

The products use to be sold by Bob Cook of BC Models. Bob passed away and the new owner is back with HO and HOn3 parts and rolling stock. Still waiting on the rolling stock.
I have an old BC Models catalog and so far most of the parts are still available.

Here is one of the kits sold by BC Models. It consist of wood frame, wood ends, wood roof, cabin ends are castings, windows and doors are castings, equipment box and truss rods are castings. Cabin sides are pre-printed thick paper. Most of the work was sanding. The castings were rather thick and the backs of the castings needed a lot of sanding. Except the paper sides, everything else needed painting. The trucks are not correct but for me the car was restored and visiting with UP 119. I might get the wood beam passenger car trucks. I have a photographer figure with box camera on a tripod to set up next to the car. On the end of the car are two brown squares that look like solid windows. Both ends are like this. They were frames in which Silvis inserted photos to be view by people. He did photos inside also. You can see the skylight on top for his inside studio. A twelve inch shelf has to be put at one of the open windows where Silvis would put the photos to be developed using sun light.
Instructions are very basic. It is not shake the box or stick built but it still took a lot of thought. Maybe the new owner will make it available again.
