Comments3:                  (18867).  Contributor reports company correspondence dating from about 1909 replying to a request for construction of a fuel shed at another rural location not far from this one suggesting use of old boxcars, instead.  The contributor suggests that modelers would be free to use either an old boxcar body, suitably modified, or the model kit for a frame structure available from the Society’s store.  He also reports that 34’ carbody bunk houses are not available in that length but suggests that a suitable 36’ kits is available from Funaro & Camarlingo.
