The Lineside Plans and Kits represented Modelcraft's foray into 00-gauge accessories, and appeared in their catalogues in the 1940s and 1950s.

Although the range included both buildings and vehicles, the name is mostly remembered, affectionately, for the range of Lineside Lorries.

"Lineside" railway building plans

THE "00" enthusiast is wise in his choice of scale. It is possible for him to construct a quite extensive layout in limited surroundings. The constructor will find that Modelcraft "Lineside" Plans give all the necessary detailed instructions for the construction of a very complete range of Architectural and Engineering features. All structures are drawn to standard railway dimensions, with modifcations where necessary for "Trix" and other established "00" systems clearly shown. As well as elevation and plan drawings, pictirial elevations are also given. This is supplemented by outline drawings of weach individual part, with measurements clearly shown and all items listed.

"Lineside" vehicle plans

WE can state unhesitatingly that these are the best road vehicle plans ever produced. Constructional details are very clear and accurate. Each plan will make up a perfect miniature vehicle. Scaled at 4mm to 1 ft., they will fit perfectly into "00" gauge railway layouts. Additions to the series will be made at regular intervals and a collection of these vehicles will give a perfect presentation in miniature of modern road transport.

Lineside Kits
