Scenecraft Oakworth station
« on: September 02, 2016, 09:16:40 am »
After making the decision to do a small layout based on the railway children storyline, one of my eagerly awaited purchases is this model from Scenecraft of the Oakworth station used in the original film.
Being new to model railways I did not know what to expect but am very impressed with their interpretation of this well known building. Well boxed with a sturdy plastic cover to keep the station in place and protect the chimneys I thought that the detail was excellent right down to the wall clock and nice weathering to the stone walls.The clear windows also mean inside I can place some dim lighting in to enhance realism !!
definitely recommend this !

I always liked the Lyddle End buildings and have several (including station, goods shed and loco shed) for my layout. Shame they packed in doing them but that station does look good. Is it comparable with Lyddle End stuff, do you know?

I've a mix of LE and Scenecraft structures and I think the LE and Scenecraft items work well together.

The photo shows, LE gasometer,  Scenecraft stables, Faller greenhouses, Factory from Greenmax and Metcalfe brewery & houses all sitting pretty comfortably together.

Saying that, I have avoided putting one right up against the other, just in case there is (probably) a slight difference in scale. The big manor house on the hill is a plaster model but can't recall where I bought it.

Looking very nice I think the house on the hill is an S D Mouldings most of my building are they look good at a distance but close up not so good the drainpipes are about a scale foot thick, but grouped together or one on its own in the background they ate OK.

That's looking really good, Dave! You have been busy!

I don't think SD Mouldings are around any more, are they?

Caz  it  was SD Mouldings that made  the plaster  buildings I'm not sure they are still in business we used to sell them on the BHE stand ,
but it was S & D that made the  plastic kits that were bought out by Kestral which is now Gaugemaster from Arundel ,a bit confusing but they were two seperate companies. If my memory serves me right .

I think SD Mouldings are still owned by the same chap though I think he was looking to sell up - I bought a few on ebay from him about a year ago and he was saying that he was open to offers. Not seen any on ebay for a little while though (he was using the name "scalebuildingsforall").

All very interesting. I used to like that range. You could get them already painted or you could paint them yourself, if my memory serves me.

Hi - Just found this thread.

I was at Oakworth a year ago, and this snap makes clear what an excellent model this is:
