Leek and Manifold Hulme End Station

£90.00

A laser cut kit of Hulme End station on the Leek & Manifold Valley Light Railway

Description

This kit is a 1/20 scale model of the Leek and Manifold Valley Light Railway’s main station at Hulme End. The Directors originally intended for the line to continue to Longnor hence this station being laid out as though it was a through station rather than a terminus. This extension was never built and Hulme End continued to be the railways main station throughout its life.

Birch Plywood Construction

The main structural parts of this kit are laser cut from 3mm birch plywood to give greater weather resistance than our usual poplar plywood.

Birch Plywood Detailing

Most of the detailing on this kit is provided by one piece “overlays” cut from 1.5mm birch plywood. This technique allows for an attractive building without the modeller having to glue dozens tiny pieces in place.

High Impact Polystyrene Roof

The roof overlay is laser cut from HIPS sheet to represent the zinc sheeting of the prototype. This also has the virtue of being completely rain proof! Window panes are also cut from the same material.

3D Printed Chimney Pot

The stations distinctive octagonal chimney pot is also included and has been 3D printed from HIPS for greater weather resistance

Note: If the modeller intends to leave this building out between running sessions then we highly recommend thoroughly varnishing or painting this structure together with the use of a waterproof PVA adhesive (neither of which is not included in this kit).
