Announced at the Great Central Railway model event this weekend, Bachmann Europe Plc is to produce its model buildings based on those at the GCR in two additional liveries.
Bachmann Europe Plc has announced several new livery additions to its Scenecraft range of OO scale buildings at the Great Central Railway’s (GCR) Model Event this morning. Fittingly, the models are based on the structures found at the GCR’s Rothley Station. The models have previously been available in green and cream livery – originally used by the GCR in the early 20th century and the condition in which Rothley Station is currently presented.
Due to popular demand these models make a welcome return along with the addition of two further colour schemes of brown and cream, suitable for the 1920s-1940s and as Quorn & Woodhouse Station appears today, and maroon and cream harking back to the 1950s-1960s when the line was under the control of BR Midland Region. Each set consists of a high-level station entrance and staircase, a station booking office and
canopy, a waiting room and toilet. Matching road bridges are also available to complete the station scene. Each model is hand-painted with features including etched windows and signs and separately-applied detail parts such as fire-buckets and lamps.
Tickets to The Great Central Railway's Model event, held this weekend, allow visitors to enjoy free travel along the line. Don't miss the BRM stand.
