Scenecraft 42-066 Art Deco Station
« on: December 29, 2012, 07:54:21 pm »
Scenecraft 42-066 Art Deco Station Building - List price 44.95

Dimensions - 132mm x 67mm x 51mm

This is a really good small-medium sized station structure. It was be of interest to anyone wanting a British suburban station from the 1930s onwards through to today. The painting is crisp (the posters on the outside are almost legible), and there are plenty of windows throughout the structure.

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

There are 4 interior rooms - the ticket hall and waiting room being connected while the two smaller ones - lockup and office - are separated by walls. The interior is painted and there is room to install lighting, figures or other details.

I may be half way around the world, but would I be right in thinking that this style of station would have been more or less unique to the Southern Region (and at that mainly the South Western Division), and perhaps a handful of Tube Stations at the outer reaches?

It seems to be a lovely station, but as its of a particular artistic style it might have wider appeal too, the GO station in Hamilton ONT. Canada shares some features (but is bigger)

Hi Graham

Im not suggesting people modelling other areas should avoid this building - I rather like it myself. The Art Deco style has a lot of appeal. We have a whole city of it in Napier, New Zealand due to a rather devastating earthquake in the early 30's!

I can see Hamilton's building does have a few additions (4 stories!) but it still holds dignity!

Cheers

Andrew

I think so. The front bears a resemblance to the iconic Surbiton station (although Surbiton is a different colour). There are certainly signal boxes in the same style (e.g. Woking etc)

Just one Pendolino, give it to me, a beautiful train, from Italy

Surbiton has a real Art Deco Picture Theatre look to it Pengy - quite striking!

Andrew - I don't know how far out from London you might still find stations in this style. As far as the Tube network is concerned stations like this exist from Zone 2 through to Zone 6 - so from nearly the centre all the way out. I cannot give you a number but I would think that the majority of suburban stations date from this time. Some of them are much much larger than this model.

Graham - oh that is good news. Then I can legitimately run Canadian trains through the station - which has yet to be named.

The station buildings are really London Transport style, similar to those built form the 1930s to early '50s, but the signal box is Southern Railway. Both 'Art Deco' but not quite the same 'family'.
