As part of the switching operation to the passenger car servicing building, a small ice house is provided for passenger cars that have ice-activated air conditioning.
This windowless brick structure is made from DPM modules. The cart is from Scale Structures. Little used in 1942 as most NYC passenger cars have mechanical air conditioning, this does add an extra operation to replenish ice for those cars that need it. The 1941 Chevrolet tanker truck for diesel locomotive refuelling is stored inside this lift-away structure.
Along the roadway to the ice house and service building, there are a couple of fire hydrants and add a bit of color to the scenery.
