A little off the sides, Floyd: The Halls of Handsome Barbershop by Menards
One of the great untold secrets of life is that the relationship between a man and his barber may be just slightly less important than that of his doctor, lawyer, or boss. In the barber chair jokes are told, stories shared, and secrets exposed. Lets face it; the barbershop is an important citadel of manhood that is often overlooked on O gauge railroads. Menards, however, corrects that shortfall with The Halls of Handsome barbershop.
The basics: This building tells a great story with a tight 7-½" by 6" footprint. It packs in color, character, texture, and memory evoking details in a very small area. The building is a heavier ceramic-like material mounted on a sturdy base. There are five people (plus Jack) on the sidewalk. One sits on a bench while a tyke rides the space ways in a coin-op rocket ride.
The building has interior and exterior illumination. Lighting requires a 4.5 volt power supply sold separately (Menards SKU nos. 279-4061/4361, 4062/4362, or 4050). Power may be applied through either a rear tabletop plug in, or from below the building with a pigtail connector.
Why you need this: Rarely do you find a layout structure that tells a story all its own. Starting from your first haircut (no doubt in a booster chair and crying) and running beyond the time your barber says, "Turning a little gray I see." Getting a trim is part of your life.
