The first Randgust rapid-prototype model!

Like many railroads Santa Fe had distinctive lineside buildings.  These hexagonal wooden phone booths were found all over the west.  They provided shelter and protection for crews in remote locations to call in for orders and update the dispatcher.  Modernized CTC systems and train radio rendered them obsolete, but most remained on the railroad until the mid-1980's.

I've assembled a confirmed list of locations of these phone booths from photos:

The 3-d designed and computer-printed model is done via Shapeways system.  The model is available direct from Shapeways ordering system, and is printed in "FUD" (Frosted Ultra Detail) material.
