GNR Wooden Platform Shelter

Recommended Posts

Just finished a nice easy build of one of the ubiquitous wooden shelters to be found on very many platforms of GNR(I) stations.  OO gauge, built from Wills embossed sheets, various thicknesses of Plastikard and Microstrip, Ratio Midland Railway signal box windows and various odds and ends from the spares box.  Shall be hunting down some poster boards, travel posters and a lamp (for above the door) to round it off.  A very enjoyable way to mark the commissioning of a new workbench!

That's a very neat piece of modelling Patrick; using signal box windows is a great idea.

I needed such a shelter for my Pettigo layout and intended using the Grand Junction LNWR timber panels, available from Parkside. I used them for the station building.

 

In the end, and given that only the rear is visible, I used the Alphagraphix card kit.

 

Cheers,

 

Glover

That looks excellent Patrick.  Like the interior too.

 

Thanks Noel, much appreciated!

Excellent work Patrick, first in many posts I hope. Looking forward to the next project.

Thanks Kieran, grateful for the encouragement!  Much appreciated.
