Tickets Please - An English Railway Station part 2


If you want part 1 first start here

Part 1

When I left you last the station was nearly complete. Well a bit of work later we are nearly there as you will see from the final photos.

To begin with a new parcel arrived on Monday from China. This contained 8 lamp posts of Victorian style. They are O gauge railway products bought on ebay working out at a about £1.50 a pop. Two of these sit in front of the station. 28mm German to scale.

These were purchased from here

You can both of them in the lower picture. These were glued onto the base board. They come with a copper wire inner for structure and support.



Next up I had to give my weary travellers somewhere to rest from the rain. The shelter is built from some old sprue and plasticard. The roof was given the same treatment as the rest of the building.

In time Ill add a door at the back of the building


With the station finished time to work on the groundwork opposite the tracks. The usual static grass and tufts



Starting to get there...




and now onto the finished product. The posters signs etc were all sourced from a railway company called Tiny Signs



From the front with level crossing on the right

A view along the tracks....









The telephone box is a tourist souvenir key fob - I bought 7 from my local newsagent for a £1 a pop


You can see in the above picture the final paintjob on the platform



The train will be here soon Godfrey....



The posters add a little bit extra of old England


So that's the station built ...onto the village hall and local school next....
 



Until next time

  10. Looks very nice, you can also get the same gaslamps that light up too. You could perhaps conceal a battery pack inside the building?
