  •     Welcome to Alameda Car Works, where we've been manufacturing high-quality, model railroad kits since 2008.

    Sheffield handcar model, 1" scale

    And it's now 2016. Despite high hopes for a larger line of products, life has gotten in the way. We (meaning I) have decided to close up shop for the foreseeable future.

    The 1.5" scale cars are sold out (including the demonstrators). And now, thanks to a big response to my ad at Discover Live Steam, the   1" cars are gone too.

    Thanks to everyone who bought a kit. I had a great time designing them. And all the kind words I got about the kits were very gratifying.

    I've been asked about parts for the 1.5" cars. As I said above, there are no complete kits. But I do have a fair number of frame parts. If that interests you, give me a call in January, 2017.

    The full-size car is a Sheffield No. 1, manufactured by the Sheffield Velocipede Car Company of Three Rivers, Michigan. These all-metal, craftsman kits are enjoyable to build and look great on a desktop or mantle.

    Take a look at the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page for more information about the kits. My addresses and numbers are all on the Contact Us page. Please call or send me a note if you have any questions (or comments or orders or whatever).
