Not railway but it is the real thing.

Nonsense - it's one of those Highly Unlikely corner-fillers of an 8 x 4 trainset* that tries to portray a chocolate-box picture of Village England... :jester:

 

Edit: albeit a very well detailed trainset. ;)

The actual giveaway that it is the real thing is the hanging baskets on the green shed.

Nice photo and yes very modellable. Looks like something that could be put together in 0 gauge. (Alisdair)

I posted this on my American Railway pictures thread and someone suggested that it might qualify for this thread.  I could say guess where.

Just looking at that I'm working out who's catalogue each item is from. That hut has me stumped. Maybe it's a kitbashed ratio?

Cut up that October ........... though withdrawn a couple of years earlier.

 

( The flikr caption date is probably right ......... the Hymeks didn't last very long, did they ! )

 

Must admit I like its 'toothy grin' - but nobody would believe that on a model so it can't possibly be on this thread ! :biggrin_mini2:
