WARNING: Rail geekery ahead. Skip this post if that sort of thing bores you rigid.
The final N gauge station, which I had planned to leave nameless but name the one before it ‘Marchway’ (those who have read the book will know), goes onto eBay tonight. Next I plan to start building some OO structures.
Here it is, with its lights on -
You can see the little fibre-optic lights over two of the doors far better in darkness -
The original kits have no interiors, they are just a shell. This is from two butchered kits with a new roof and chimneys. Hopefully it will get some interest as something unique. We’ll see. You never can tell with eBay. The two windows either side of the second door from the right are frosted – perhaps because they are toilets, perhaps because they are offices, but really because…
… that’s where the wiring is. Clicking should enlargify all pics and yes, I did fit a floor, interior walls, fireplace/chimney breast/mantelpiece below all three chimneys. I was going to fit a full interior with seats and tables and desks and shelving but someone else can do the fiddly stuff now. I’m moving on to bigger things. They are much easier to see.
That’s it for stations. All platforms and all station buildings are done apart from a signal box with signal levers and instruments inside. That will also be so, so much easier to replicate in a bigger scale.
Soon… all those damn coaches. I can put lights in them and have, but interiors? No way.
