Thoraldby Goods (IMG 2860)

The other end of Thoraldby Station with the de-commissioned (Skaledale) cabin based on Goathland, but mounted on the end of the platform. The roof with support struts of the goods depot building behind was bought part assembled with modifications and a bit of jiggery-pokery was needed to get it in the right place after I first put in a (partly damaged) high wall with Ratio factory-type gates. There is a well-weathered weigh office with a much modified Scale Link platform crane on a raised base to the left of the Dapol Gunpowder van still in LNER livery and a motley collection of goods wagons and a van in the bay. Scatter comes from a variety of sources including Anita Decor and Countryside Scenics, trees mostly from 4D (they do a range of sizes and types (including silver birch, more of that later). The loco is WD 2-8-0 90446 (Bachmann) of 51B Newport Shed with a train of five (Parkside) Bogie Sulphate wagons from Billingham ICI plant.
