Silverton Ore Chute Cliff first saw the proto-type for this kit in  Silverton in 1951 on his first trip on the Durango-Silverton train.  (In those days, it was a mixed train with both freight and passenger cars and the train crew served coffee to the passengers!  He saw it again in 1956 and thought it was worth photographing and measuring for some future project.  The ore chute was situated on the south side of town, next to the railroad tracks–about 500 feet south of the station.  It sat by itself out in the open and was quite noticeable.  Easy to assemble, this kit includes the ore chute structure as well as cribbing sections and can be configured to fit your layout.  Although the original structure did not have the stairs, we added them to give more character to the model.  We include enough stair and railing components so that you can arrange theme to suit your needs.  There are diagonally sheathed double doors on the back-side of the chute.  The footprint of the structure as shown (including the stairs) measures 2″ deep x 4″ wide. — Product No. 5904 — Quantity:1 — Exterior Measurement: NA — Fits Within: NA — Additional Notes: Products may contain small parts and should be kept safely away from small children.
