    FALLER, POLA, VOLLMER, KIBRI, PIKO, AUHAGEN, CASALUX, HELJAN, STIPP, BACHMANN, LIFE- LIKE, MODEL- POWER, IHC. What else? Knowing the producers will make possible to apply directly to their sites and no need will be in further "Are any buildings of a particular sort ever produced now in H0?"- queries.

    If Campbell's has a website, I can't find it. I did read a statement from them saying that they would not be introducing any new kits but were going to get production going on their existing kits....If that happens...IT"S GOOD NEWS!

    There are many companies that make buildings for HO scale. Going through the Structures section of the current Walthers catalog, I counted 56 companies that make buildings (I excluded any company that only makes bridges, etc.). For those interested, the Structures section of the new catalog is 199 pages long.

    I should note that Walthers does not carry all current manufacturers of HO scale buildings, so a complete list would probably include at least 75 entries.

    Regarding Campbell, the current Walthers catalog has 6-1/2 pages of Campbell kits and each item includes a fairly nice photo.

    If anyone is interested, I have an Excel spreadsheet listing quite a few building manufacturers (about 75 companies).

    Is there a method for distributing Excel spreadsheets through this forum? Is it appropriate to attach a zip file containing the spreadsheet?

    Maybe 'cause they are "cold cast resin", whatever that is, and come pre-painted and assembled. To Bad. Be kinda nice to put interior details in that John Deere dealer. Have the overhead door open with a tractor being serviced, some office details, and maybe a service desk with some customers..
    To Bad....Looks like it would've made a nice kit.

    Can anyone provide web sites for the following manufacturers of HO structures?

    Better Than Scratch (B.T.S.)
    Built-Rite Models
    Busch
    Campbell Scale Models
    Cibolo Crossing
    Heljan
    Keystone Locomotive Works
    Peco
    Timberline (not the scenery manufacturer)

    If you don't have a web site, any other relevant information would be useful.
