Our Buildings and Structures
The buildings are mainly made from kits, with some scratch built items.
1. A view of the sidings showing the buffer stops which were built from a Lineside Delights resin kit. This photograph was taken before the track was ballasted.
2. A lineside hut constructed from a Lineside Delights resin kit. See photograph 4 for a larger version.
3. The station is from a resin kit by Lineside Delights with the clock and seat from Perfect World. The figures are from Model Town.
5. A scratch built Coal Staithe. The shovel and hammer are from Lineside Delights. The coal is gravel and the planks of wood are made from lollipop sticks.
7. The original from which the model in picture 6 came. It is on the Rochers de Naye 800mm gauge rack railway from Montreux.
9. The signal cabin (from a Model Town kit) at the exit from the sidings. The sidings have been named in memory of a dear friend. But where is the bobby? See people picture 3 for the answer.
10. A small halt for the local manor house. The building is from a Model Town kit. Model Town also supplied the goods waiting for a pick-up goods train. The station name was supplied by Cooper Craft.
11. A view of the station showing the telephone box which is from RVLR Workshops and the fire buckets which are from Perfect World.
12. Yet another view of the station showing the bicycle (from Lineside Delights) and the post box from Tuxcraft.
13. Another view of the station, this time in the evening, showing the outside working lights. The inside is also lit using a 'doctored' solar powered garden light.
14. A workshop created from coffee stirers and soup cans. The contents were purchased from P & J Models with the workman coming from Model Town.
15. I had some bits and pieces in my scrap box that I thought that I would never use - so I put them to use in this skip. There is actually a place called Lower Down (and the dialling code is correct too).
16. The model timber yard is from Model Town. It is part of the working area of the railway. The Local Planning Officer has more ideas for this area - which will be implemented when I've built the rolling stock kits that I got from this year's Stoneleigh show.
