Having bought this off ebay a few months ago I thought I would have ago at improving it ,after stripping the awful sticky back plastic off I recoverd it with plastikard using a paper template for the walls and windows transferd onto the card for cutting I also added a gents toilet block more detail is to be added signs,drainpipes,window sills and flashing on the roof but up till now I,m quite pleased with it ,apart from buying the building and plastikard all the rest is what i have in the scrap box ,It pays not to throw anything away !.

The canopy and barge boards need painting stone or cream colour and i,m not too sure of the green used on the doors it says Buckingham green for NE stations in the 50s and 60s but looks a bit dark to me .

Looking good Brian and you are right it will look even better when the canopy and bargeboards are painted over.

You probably know this already .....but just in case.....if you google "LNER Station paint colours" or similar you should be able to access a load of sources............I was astonished at how much detail I got when I was trying to find the right colours for LMS signal boxes

Colours for NE region seem to be confusing as there was different colours used but as you say Owen dark green in the 60s so I,m happy with that :thumbs

Hi Brian, think this might be what you're after:

http://www.stationcolours.info/index.php?p=1_4_LNER

Seems Buckingham Green was introduced by the LNER in the 30s. When the NE Region came into being at Nationalisation they developed their own scheme, based on light blue and white. If you go down the page you'll see the difference with the LNER colour scheme at the top. I model the West Riding, a lot of which was Midland territory, and when the NE Region took it over after Nationalisation, they painted everything horizontal, including a signal hut right next to Standedge Tunnel, a long way from the LNER domain.  I presume their new corporate scheme was used on the LNER structures as buildings needed repainting and that's why so many of them in the North East remained green into the 50s and 60s. Hope that's of some help.
