I have been working on a London & South Western Type 4 Signal Box based on the examples in use at Wadebridge (x 2) and Padstow, and of course throughout the LSWR system.

As a first attempt, what do you think?

Go on then I'll fall for it :roll:

Is this one of the new buildings that you have commissioned, because you are on to a winner if it is.

But if you have built it, which kit have you used :question

Chris that would fit very nicely on the T & P its the wrong stone for Penzance they have castle granite down there now it would fit nicely on my layout as the Penwartha mine mines that exact stone so i have already got an exact location for it.

So come tell us where you got it from:lol:

I reckon that's a sneaky commission so we all have somewhere to control our Beattie well tanks from :mutley.

Nice though. Looking quite realistic. And as Brian says it suits the NCR though not the GWR routes where different stone or more commonly brick was used.

Beautiful.......And that from a GWR man!!!

But it looks a little bit too perfect to be a scratchbuild,even knowing you to be a man of many talents,so I'm going along with the commisioned  model idea!
:cool wink

Of course you are all correct that I could not possibly build something like that!  I was careful to say "working on" although putting it in the members workbench was slightly naughty!

The day I manage to build something like that I'll hang my c*ck out in Tesco as the saying goes (it used to be "bare my a*se in Woolworths until they went scat!).

It is something I am working on with Bachmann and about to press the button on, so it is between us for another week or so before it gets announced to the world.

A much cheaper model than the Truro version, which looks every bit as good but I am still trying to get the price of that more reasonable...

Looks marvellous to me. Would it be easy to change its name?

It will probably come off and you can put one of your choice on.  I don't think it is moulded as part of the building but I will ask the question.

That's almost good enough to make me think GWR Chris :shock::shock::shock:  Almost but...............................where there's muck there's brass and, as far as I know, LNER and LMS had all the muck there was to be had in Britain !!!!

However, I really do like it - wonder how the sums look ?

It is looking around £30 but to get that price I have to order far more than the normal limited run.  I think it should be a winner though so this should happen.

I believe the interior will be the same as standard Scenecraft buildings with just the floor in place, but you can remove this to add your own if you wish and lights etc.  Having an interior included nearly doubles the price....

Only one downpipe Chris?
It wouldn't take much of a downpour to overwhelm it.
(This from an SES volunteer dealing with peoples blocked gutters in a particularly wet Western Australian winter).

No external lights over stairway or Signal box name plate?

Otherwise looks very nice indeed.
