"Build me a cute little signal box, in pink, with flowers boxes and call it 'Cuckoo Junction' - or get your own tea"

"Yes Dear "

So here's the start, to be named Cuckoo Junction - What ? !! Her idea, not mine !  AND with flower boxes !

That looks brilliant Allan - not sure why it's called "Cuckoo Junction" but then nobody understands women ....................

I nice box called "Maxmill Junction in "OO" would result in my getting your tea also .....................:roll:.

Never mind the boxes, where's the competition flower and vegetable garden complete with white-washed rocks? Station Masters were known to commandeer a few flat wagons and have their garden moved when they were promoted to the next, larger station. Rhubarb plots under the stairs were a favorite of signal cabin staff.

Another small country station built to use up a surplus of brick paper and possibly as a replacement to the one illustrated earlier.

Keep them all on shelves Max until someone rings up wanting a specific building or whatever. In short, I can't give 'em away !

Cheers.

Allan.

I go away for a year, then come back to this - what a feast for the eyes! Cardboard modelling is really turning into what grabs me the most about this hobby, and I have always been so inspired with your buildings, as well as others on this forum. Brilliant! :)

I think what sets these buildings off, and others that you have built, are the windows. They are so fine and well set into the walls that you have to look twice to see whether the building is real.
