The Gateway Division has used the Walthers Cornerstone street systems on several of its annual project layouts and the project we built for the History Museum. Directions and drawings for assembling the streets and sidewalks are minimal, but relatively easy to follow.
We worked from the intersection toward the track and cut the sections of street adjacent to the track to fit.
The street sections can be glued down with a slow drying epoxy or a white glue like Weld Bond that will allow time to move pieces if necessary. After the streets and sidewalks are installed, additional weathering down the center of traffic lanes, center lines, railroad crossing warnings painted on the pavement, stop signs or traffic lights, pedestrian crossing lines, and corner mail boxes are details that bring the city street scene to life.

Well,in all fairness,I've seen some of them and with a little work they could be satisfactory for a layout. As relatively inexpensive kits, they DO present good kitbashing and innovating possibilities. Welcome to the forums, where collectively we have been known to cheer the well picked nit from time to time.The Plasticville line ( now promoted by Bachman) has been part of the hobby for a very long time, not because of their attention to detail, ease of assembly, or classic styling of mid-western Americana architecture, but mostly because their structures can be used as representatives of many generic places. Since you are ready to go beyond the generic, either find or order one of the Walthers annual catalogs, simply to be exposed to a sizeable portion of those kits that are available from many other suppliers. While no longer in production there are a lot of these available if you keep on eye out for them. I also have the Buckhorn mine kit, but decided not to build it as the model requires three rail lines at the building site and the area I have available for the mine site is only two tracks wide. These kits are available in red brick (933-3139) or concrete (933-3138) for a list price of $12.98 and are sections of street and sidewalks with curbs that can be arranged in a various configurations to fit a city scene.
Parts should be separated from the sprues, cleaned of any remaining plastic flash, and test fitted. We found that it worked well to glue the road halves to the risers and where possible to glue several segments together before attempting to attach them to the layout.


We used a generous amount of caulked construction glue to grip the street pieces that are cupped for the center crown. Now retired, she has been a high school English teacher, an office manager, and a university administrator.

The tracks are fine, the trains are fine, but the buildings just do not give me the appeal I am looking for. To be sure, some of the vertical sign structures and such also predated WW2, but the Plasticville stuff does give one a good starting point for this type of building display. Yes, I have some of their buildings on my layout that date back to my early days in this hobby in the 1960's. Their catalog will also give you a good idea of the range of detail parts and scratch building supplies that are available for hobbyists. I lucked out and purchased two of these, I thought the vendor was selling two but the lot was actually for two.

For the History Museum project, we had an intersection of concrete roadway, brick industrial streets or alleys near the track, streets crossing the tracks in several places, and a street going downhill below the railroad underpass. All of the street sections were test fitted and decisions were made about where manhole covers and sewer grates would be installed. Diagrams and individual pieces should be carefully studied to fit them together properly before applying the glue. Sidewalks and curbs must fit together the proper way to provide the largest surface for glue.

For me, now I am a perfectionist, and they lack the detail and the kitbashing availability. You will need to scrape off the lettering and do some filing, painting and detailing, it's up to you.


Part of progressing in modeling skills is the willingness to build to the best of one's ability, and then adapting, redesigning, kit bashing, scratch building something better. This is a hobby that will let you grow in your perfectionism and still be considered a good fellow. For this project, we started with the four-way intersection where placement was determined by the large buildings and the extensions to cross the tracks on three sides of the layout. Openings must be cut into the street so that manhole covers can be inserted from the bottom side. Sidewalks also should be assembled into larger sections and may be painted and weathered or ink washed before they are attached to the street sections and glued down to the layout. You can download this as nice desktop wallpaper by right click and save as into your computer. This is the most popular brand at my local train shop, and I was wondering if anybody knows of a good, reliable brand with good detail and good Kitbashing ability. Use your own judgment about when to paint, either before assembling the pieces or later in the project. The fourth direction going toward the underpass required that the top of the hill would start at the joint between two sections of the road. Don't miss to check all from this kind of lovely popular desktop background by viewing the similar high definition wallpapers design below.
Two curb cuts, one for a driveway and one for an alley, two quarter circle street sections and matching sidewalks, and manhole covers, sewer grates, and fire hydrants complete the kit. With our project layouts we were able to turn the whole layout vertically and paint and weather the assembled streets, a luxury you may not have with a home layout. Careful gluing after painting individual pieces or air brushing assembled sections of street may be more successful. This product probably would not work well with a lot of up and down terrain and one must be careful about creating unrealistic steep gradients.
