Pretty well completed this reproduction of the signal box which formerly controlled St Vigeans Junction just north of Arbroath railway station.

A very attractive prototype with the rafters peeking out from under the roof guttering - quite a pest to cut and fix, though............

It's not in its final position and I will need to do some earth-moving/site preparation to put it in its correct place, but it sits quite well in its present site.

(More pics in colour on the Arbroath  thread).

Is that 00 gauge or scale? In TT scale, 3mm to the foot 16.5mm is 5' 6", the standard gauge on the sub continent.

And 10.5mm track (not so widely available now)  would be good for metre gauge and 3'6.

The models/kits are all in HO scale.

 

As for track gauges the popular ones are used BG on 16.5mm, MG on 12.0mm and NG on 9.0mm. For the purists, our supplier for mechanism (Locos n Stuff) can do BG in 18.83mm, MG in 14.2mm.

Very kind of you, Al  but I consider myself properly trumped. Top job.

The 'like' button just isn't enough sometimes! Outstanding modeling.

Not wishing to take this off thread but in actual fact 10.5mm gauge track should be (in theory) much more widely available in the UK than ever because PECO now make it - in the distant past it was a Shinohara (japan) inport.
