For Carbbie Bridge we were asked to produce a station building that would fit a standard Hornby platform. As the platform fitted against a wall the building was designed as a half relief structure. The basic layout of the building closely followed the Kidsgrove prototype but the open shelter/bike shed was converted into a retail unit. To add depth to the building  a mirrored vinyl was applied to the rear wall to give the illusion that the station building was double the original size. LED lighting was fitted with the LED’s recessed into the roof. As the side pics show the lighting was quite effective. A matching canopy was designed for the second platform again fitted with LED’s. The canopy was supported on two small buildings one a waiting room the other a toilet block.       

Some feedback from the client…

“ I would like to thank Dave at Westcoast Miniatures for the excellent station building it’s fantastic and even better lit up. I would recommend them to anyone with a modern image layout as this type of building has been long over due. Thanks
