Horse 1Horse 3Horse 4

A stagecoach was a type of covered wagon for passengers and goods. It was strongly sprung and drawn by four horses, usually four-in-hand. Widely used before the introduction of railway transport, it made regular trips between stages or stations, which were places of rest provided for stagecoach travelers. The business of running stagecoaches or the act of journeying in them was known as staging.

Beginning in the 18th century crude wagons began to be used to carry passengers between cities and towns, first within New England in 1744, then between New York and Philadelphia in 1756.

Stagecoaches ceased operating between Boston and New York after steamships began running between New York and Providence. However, the Boston to Providence highway was still one of the busiest in the nation with the stagecoach companies carrying passengers six hours from Boston to meet the steamboats. Once the railroads began being built between cities in the 1830s, the stagecoach companies began running from the rails to other cities and towns.

Familiar images of the stagecoach in Great Britain are that of a Royal Mail coach passing through a turnpike gate, a Dickensian passenger coach covered in snow pulling up at a coaching inn, and a highwayman demanding a coach to “stand and deliver”. The yard of ale drinking glass is associated by legend with stagecoach drivers, though was mainly used for drinking feats and special toasts.

The stagecoach traveled at an average speed of about five miles per hour, with the total daily mileage covered being around 60 or 70 miles. Now, maybe your Stagecoach set won’t be traveling that fast or that many miles but it will offer much enjoyment for you and make a Wonderful new addition to your 3D Puzzle Collection!

Wonderful HO Scale Painted Ladies!

Hi Everyone! Sarah at makecNc here again to give you some background history of our Wonderful HO Scale Painted Ladies. The “Painted Ladies” is a term used for Victorian and Edwardian houses and buildings in American Architecture that are painted in three or more colors that enhance or embellish their architectural details. The term was first used for San Francisco Victorian houses in a book called “Painted Ladies”. Now the term is used to describe groups of Victorian houses in other American Cities such as Baltimore, St. Louis, Missouri, the greater San Francisco and New Orleans aeas, Cincinnati, Ohio and New Jersey.

About 48,000 houses in the Victorian and Edwardian styles were built in San Francisco between 1849 and 1915 and many were painted in bright colors.

In 1963, San Francisco artist Butch Kardum began combining intense blues and greens on the exterior of his Italianate-style Victorian house. Many criticized his house but other neighbors began to copy the bright colors on their own houses.

Kardum and many others began to transform dozens of gray houses into Painted Ladies. By the 1970s, the colorist movement, as it was called, had changed entire streets and neighborhoods. This process continues to this day. One of the best-known groups of “Painted Ladies” is the row of Victorian houses at 710–720 Steiner Street, across from Alamo Square park, in San Francisco. It is sometimes known as “Postcard Row.”

We sell six HO Scale Painted Ladies here at makeCNC. The Lady Leona, The Sarah Lee, The Julie Ann, The Miss Daisy, The Lilac Lady and The Miss Ann.

These can be built at larger or smaller sizes for those who want to make Doll Houses and other types of miniatures. They are not 3D puzzles as they are patterns for scale models and do require some glue for assembly as well.

The finish will depend on the skill level of the maker.

Of course the Painted Lady Patterns come in our DXF Laser and Router Versions. The Laser Version comes in 1/2″, 1/4″, 1/8″ and 1/16″ and 1.5, 3, 6 and 12mm sizes. The Router Version comes in 1/2″, 1/4″ and 1/8″ and also 3, 6 and 12mm sizes.
