Before carbonated beverages were readily available for our enjoyment, Caleb Davis Bradham concocted a stomach tonic in 1898. Known as Brad's Drink, this remarkable blend of sugar, water, caramel, nutmeg, and other natural additives became a fan favorite. Realizing that he had crafted a refreshing carbonated beverage, he renamed the drink Pepsi-Cola¨. As demand for Pepsi-Cola¨ increased, Bradham decided it was time to offer the delicious drink in bottle form. In 1904, Bradham purchased a building in New Bern, North Carolina, where he produced the syrup and bottled the soda. With proper trademarks and logos in place, the Pepsi-Cola¨ Company continued to expand. By 1910, the company had 240 bottling franchises in 24 states. Each bottling plant was outfitted with advanced mixing and filling equipment, which helped promote their sales in the long run. This HO Gauge Pepsi¨ Bottling Plant is our interpretation of a fully functioning bottling factory that may exist throughout the United States. Beautifully lit with 24 LED lights, this structure has an impressive presence that demands very little real estate on your layout. In fact, this model is specially designed with a 2 inch wide by 3-1/8 inch high tunnel, which allows the structure to sit over your existing HO gauge tracks without taking up too much room. Additional features of this spectacular building include an electronic Pepsi¨ sign with multiple lighting patterns and three animated roof vents that rotate in unison. Along with Jack the German shepherd, four HO scale figures can be also be seen working hard throughout the display. Plus, you will also notice a water tower with a blinking red LED light and three loading docks where cases of soda are loaded for deliveries.
