Bristol Barrow Road - Engine Shed Sidings Signal Box


barrowroad

563 views

Engine Shed Sidings signal box is now finished and has taken it's place on the layout. The box is constructed from a Churchward Models etched brass kit I picked up from Ebay, and contains a detailed interior from Springside items with armchair and signalmen from Modelu. The final items, shown in the photos, are the two downpipes which are attached using Modelu cast iron holderbats. Only the two nameboards to make.

I visited the Ambis stand on Sunday and purchased a pack of etched LMS letters for the signal box nameboard. A bit of a fiddle to make but I'm pleased with the result. Individual letters were cut off the fret, cleaned up and given a coat of Halfords white primer and the board with red.
When dry the letters were attached to the board using PVA.

You've made such a good job of the signal box I hardly like to make a critical comment, but is it possible that you have forgotten the ridge tiles on the four angles of the hipped roof?

David, I appreciate your concern but the Midland did not have 'ridge tiles' on the hipped roof angles.
