Coal Bunker kit (BC12)

Once a common sight around the railway network on the trackside and in yards for storage of coal or ballast. This versatile kit can be used in a number of different ways on the layout. It could become part of a coal yard scene or just a coal store for a building or factory. In the permanent way compound it could be storing fresh ballast ready for re-sleepering work or measured shovel packing to sort out those dipped rail joints. In builders yards they could be found storing sand and gravel.

 

This kit comprises 8 detailed cast resin pieces, created from my own masters and moulds. The kit assembles quickly with superglue or general purpose adhesive to form a three sided structure. The additional uprights can then be added where they would be supporting the timbers. The pieces feature the typical splits and bolt holes characteristic of second hand railway sleepers, including imprints from where chairs had been previously fastened. Careful painting followed by dry brushing will help to bring out all the detail. 

 

The photographs show the parts you will receive, plus a sample build unpainted, and then painted to illustrate how a finished model could look. Coal is not included.

 

Approximate dimensions: 68mm wide, 65mm deep, 30mm high.

 

Multiple kits can be joined together to create a longer model with several sections, perhaps for different coals in a coal merchants yard.

Pile of Sacks - 2 piles + 2 single sacks (BC14)

The resin paints well with most common modelling paints and can be glued with superglue or general purpose adhesive.

 

The photos show the parts you will receive plus some painted examples on a recent model commission. Please note the figures and buildings in some photos are not part of this sale and are just used to illustrate how the sacks could be used on a model.

Packing Cases - pack of 6 (BC13)

Some have address / consignment labels. The largest case is approx. 24mm x 17mm, the smallest 17mm x 14mm. They are all 10mm high to allow prototypical stacking.

Timber sleeper fence/retaining wall/Coal yard shuttering etc  (BC15)

The re-use of redundant timber sleepers was common practice for the old railway companies. Frequently they were used were a quick and cheap wall or fence was needed, common examples include forming bunkers and shuttering in coal yards, retaining walls to hold back small earth works and track side fences on the boundary of railway property. Often construction was simply by means of digging a trench and setting the sleepers on end, edge to edge before back filling. Who said recycling was a new idea!

 

This kit comprises 3 detailed cast resin pieces, created from my own masters and moulds. The kit assembles quickly with superglue or general purpose adhesive to form a wall of approx. 200mm long and max. height 31mm.

 

The three separate pieces have been created to allow for flexibility, perhaps being formed into a three sided coal bin rather than a long wall. The resin works easily with common modelling tools and can be easily sawn to allow adjustment and modification.

 

The pieces feature the typical splits and bolt holes characteristic of second hand railway sleepers including imprints from where the chairs had been previously fastened. Careful painting followed by dry brushing will help to bring out all the detail. 

 

The pieces feature wood detail on both sides, so will look just as good from any angle

 

The photographs show the parts you will receive, plus some sample scenes to illustrate how they could be used on a finished model..

 

Multiple kits can be joined together to create a longer wall if necessary.
