Welcome.  There are lots of good kits for "company houses."  I have three which will line the road from Hannahville to J.P. #6 and may make some more for E.P. #12.

I have many pictures of railroad construction in the west during the 1800's.  They had nice cars for upper management,  bunk cars for foremen , work cars for the saw sharpeners and quartermaster, but the workers (mostly Chinese), pitched tents along the way.   With the advent of automated systems, the employee  count is down, no cabooses (or is it cabeeses). I think most engineers are on "per diem" to stay where they want to for an o'er niter.
