[GVT] New station building at “Dropstone”
Posted by Gerd on Friday, 29 January 2021
I added a new station building to Dropstone on my little 009 layout.
Original, this is a “Coal Office” kit made by Dapol, but size and style fits well for a small station shelter as used on the Glyn Valley Tramway. So this one now serves my Gwyrdd Valley Tramway.
All signs were researched from the internet and printed on a photoprinter at home.
More structures and deatils are in progress and will be shown soon.
I used to live about 45 minutes from the real Glyn Valley and I’m sure I have drawings somewhere of the small Glyn Valley waiting rooms which were very welcome on a cold, damp Welsh winter day as they had a coal fire in them and an oil lamp I think. I certainly have both 5kg books on the GVT together with smaller works. If you want I can probably sort something out. By the way, the Dapol Coal Office is one of the original Airfix kits from the late 1950’s.
