It's the Novelty Iron Works #5047 from International Hobby Corp. (recently out of business)

Thanks, Bob!  Appreciate the help!


Wow, now this is a kit that looks cheap in the box, but can REALLY be dressed up to be a fine model.   It is an odd piece.  It is very tall and quite thin.  On a small layout it probably wouldn't fit in normally.  The person who built the one I have used muted, natural colors for the stone and the roof.  It is VERY believable up close.  It's a shame this one is out of production, though there were eight of them on Ebay tonight running from $15 to $24 each.  Leave the signs off.
