Ballast, ground cover, building kits, weathering supplies and more.
Brennan's Model Railroading was established in 1997. My flagship product, Brennan's Better Ballast, was born out of a desire to produce a realistic 1/48 scale ballast mix made from real crushed granite that varies in size, shape and color just like the prototype. It continues to be the industry leader.
Since then, I have developed a line of completely Natural Ground Cover materials and Utra-Realistic building kits. My Chain Link Fence Kit, designed from actual blueprints, is the only accurate O scale chain link fence on the market. My Wooden Freight Dock Kit is a precise reproduction of a freight dock that I carefully measured and photographed before it was torn down.
Please see my website for my plaster kit offerings including the Limited Edition Plaster Roundhouse Kit. New kits, using a variety of materials, are continually being developed. The Frank Ellison Tribute Series began in October 2017. The Oblong Box Co., the first in the series, was an instant hit. These kits, based upon Ellison's How-to articles that appeared in Model Railroader and Toy Trains magazine articles in the 1940s and 50s, are updated versions of his iconic structures--using modern materials and methods. The idea being that if Frank was alive today, this is how they would be built.
One of the hallmarks of my kits are the complete, photographically illustrated instructions written with the beginner in mind. I want everyone to have fun and enjoy the satisfaction from a job well done!
