Heavy gear fixed here: The Cripple Creek Tractor Repair shop by Menards
Farming is tough work, and in any rural town you'll find a business dedicated to keeping the tractors and heavy equipment rolling. Cripple Creek Tractor Repair is a compact shop dedicated to helping the American farmer get the job done!
The basics: Cripple Creek Tractor Repair is a fully assembled and decorated repair shop based on a Quonset hut erected with a cut stone foundation. The building has a modest footprint of 7-3/8" x 7" and has interior lighting.
Lighting requires a 4.5-volt power supply sold separately (Menards SKU nos. 279-4061/4361, 4062/4362, or 4050). Power is applied through table-top plug in at the rear of the structure.
Why you need this: Farming, construction, and transportation all require heavy gear to get the job done. Cripple Creek Tractor must do good work, because it looks like it has been around quite a while.
The model is solidly constructed. The cut stone has texture you can feel, while the front simulates an open extruded steel door. Above the entry is a stone façade with a red Cripple Creek Tractor Repair sign. On the front you'll spot an "Armall" Tractor sign (haha).
Three sides have stone supporting the hut's curved roof. You'll find raised lettering on the right side offering "Parts New and Used" and a tabletop plug-in near on the building's right rear.
The shop's left side features a cast-in doorway. The rear is home to a stone chimney rising skyward as well as a vent pipe.
The compact 7-3/8" x 7" footprint can be squeezed into your layout's main street, or in a rural setting with heavy equipment staged nearby. The interior is exceptionally well lighted and workers and other details positioned inside can easily be seen.
Cripple Creek Tractor Repair is a nifty little building that can be a focal point for any O gauge compatible farm gear or heavy equipment. Help keep the wheels of commerce in your train town moving with Tractor Repair!
