New scenecraft engine shed
« on: September 24, 2012, 07:22:34 am »
Now i was down the svr this weekend for the gala of steamage....and i picked up a mag splement which tells you how to do a specific scene in n gauge. They use the new scenecraft engine shed and coaling plant....

I though i would do it for my layout, as they look stunning, 4 road engine shed and a large coaling tower, then i choked when i saw the price....60 each!!!

My lords!

Anyone else saw them and whats their take? They are currently available for pre order

Hi

Not seen in the flesh but have spotted it on various websites. Scenecraft buildings are very well made but too expensive for my budget.

I think the prices you saw are pretty standard for the range. Take a look at these links:

and
https://railsofsheffield.com/coaling-tower-42-070-JJJA17398.aspx

Much as I may wish for such, I'll stick with Metcalfe kits which I enjoy making and in my opinion are excellent value for money.

I guess inflation affects everything, now I'll happily pay silly money for yard lights, but 70 for a shed which in itself is really just a three sided shell!! Not on your nelly mate ;)

You could pick up three or four Peco shed kits for half that price and mash them all together to build something pretty spectacular!

Daddy needs to own a gold mine to afford the Scenecraft range :doh: I must be a tight a--e because I am quite happy with the free or cheap card kits that can be downloaded or scratch building an engine shed  :thumbsup:

The Peco kit is a very old model that was apparently produced by a sub-contractor so the usual Peco QC didn't get much of a look in. The kit contains some parts that have nothing to do with the shed and aren't covered by the meagre assembly instructions.

I had a badly produced kit (warped mouldings) that Peco very promptly replaced but I've decided to stick with the card kits. I'm sure the Metcalfe double shed with its nice looking interior could be made into something bigger if needed.
