Re: Shipping Sears Homes

There are still firms producing prefab houses, though shipping by rail probably ended decades ago.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The big one in Canada is Halliday Homes: http://www.hallidayhomes.ca/
The company website has a history section: http://www.hallidayhomes.ca/history.cfm
but they don't mention when rail shipping ended.
I'm sure there are other prefab house manufacturers in the US that are still in business. Halliday in Ontario was a major outfit in the 1950s. Many folks are surprised to hear that they are still in business Their designs are much fancier than the "plain box" stles of 50 years ago. Perhaps someone interested could contact them to see if they have anything in their records about shipping by rail.
