This kit is a model of Walberswick Station, found on the Southwold Railway in East Sussex. The kit assembles into the station as originally built in 1881 (it was rebuilt in 1901 to be larger) with its attached outside urinal. If the Directors of your railway company are concerned by the lack of “Ladies facilities” you could always add a Leek & Manifold outside loo!
We feel the original shallow “foot print” makes it an ideal size to squeeze into a tight corner on your railway where larger buildings might not fit.
Birch Plywood Construction
The main structural parts of the Walberswick Station 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 a one piece “overlay” cut from 1.5mm birch plywood. This technique allows for an attractive building without the modeller having to glue dozens of tiny pieces in place.
Vacuum Formed roof
The roof overlay is vacuum formed High Impact Polystyrene Sheet to represent a corrugated iron roof. This also has the virtue of being completely rain proof!
Window frames and glazing are laser cut from polypropylene.
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).
