Bachmann 44-0038 Narrow Gauge Engine Shed

I wonder if a nice type could do me a favour.

 

If anyone has one of these, could they measure both the maximum height and the width of the main door.

 

 

Many thanks.

 

 

Rob.

Hi Rob

 

The  height  is  48mm  width  42mm approx.

 

I have  attchd  phot of  my only  available 00 loco  a  1980s  Dapol PUG  ( Hong Kong  made,  still runs ok when  I  apply a  9volt battery to  the  wheels)

 

It is  sitting  in  the  doorway  with  quite a lot  of  room to  spare  ( except it is not on  track!, but if  using  the  locoshed  you could  always  raise it  up a little to accommodate higher loco)

 

The  pug  is  approx. 43mmH x  36mmW

Please do put the doors on the right way round though, not as in the picture.  The diagonal brace should always go from the top outer corner back to the hinge post.  Just look at any real life engine shed.  It's just amazing how many people get this wrong

That's why  I left  the  doors  off in  the  pic  I sent  to  demonstrate  the   door aperture  size,  Personally   when  my shed  was in  use  I  found  it  more attractive  with  the  doors in  the position in  the  OP's photo.  after  all we  can   always  invoke  RULE 1....... we  are  not  all rivet  counters!

I now have one of these. Thanks Steve for taking the time and trouble to assist.

 

 

Not a narrow gauge application but I shall update with progress.

 

 

Here's a mock up.
