  1. Latest addition to the fleet, what can I say Millers Dale has to have a Midland Pulman doesn't it .
  2. In lockdown I spent many an hour researching and I came across a dyeline print on the Midland Railway web site showing all of the station area dated 1906.

The Silcocks sign was done by Sankey Scenics as a bespoke enlargement from their wagon labels.

The walls are cut out using a Silhouette Cutter I use it to scribe the planking and door and window openings which are then cut out by hand. Each wall is then detail
