Rico Coal Pocket

Currently not available

Designed from documents in the Rio Grand Southern archives at the Colorado State Historical Society and photographs, these kits are an accurate model of the impressive structure that once stood at Rico Colorado.

Like all Crystal River kits, the instructions are complete, and well illustrated with accurate drawings.  In all three scales, it is easy to shorten the trestle to fit in a smaller space.  The trestle can be used for other application, including standard gauge.  A complete display will require both the trestle and pocket kits.

The trestle consisted of twenty bents spaced on 16 foot centers for a total length of 304 feet.      Also included in the trestle kit is the auxiliary storage bin and the stairs.  For the HO model, the bents are precut to size and shape.  Add the cross bracing, and they are ready to place in the base provided.  In S and O scales, the bents are fabricated from stripwood using drawings and a fixture included with the kit.

The pockets are a modification of our standard Vance Junction pocket.  Changes include increasing the post height, updating the waste or slack coal bin under the pocket, removal of some characteristics that were specific only to the Vance Junction pocket, and addition of the scalloped fascia on the ends of the pocket.
