|"Llanvi" signal box|
This signal box is based on several typical Great Western signal boxes, such as Llanvihangel (hence the name), Pandy and Pontrilas on the
old 'North and West' route. It is sized to be suitable for the smaller railway.
The kit can be assembled so that the porch is either on the left or the right. Simply switch the sides and flip over the floor.
Unlike our previous kits which are made from moisture-proof mdf, the pieces are machined from 'pvc foam' sheet. This material, though more expensive is totally waterproof, so that no preparation is necessary, and the pieces can be joined together easily with pvc solvent (as used by plumbers for pvc pipes), making it very simple and easy to assemble.
The building can be painted in the same way as our other kits or it can be finished using our textured plastic sheets.
If you would like to alter the appearance even more we can provide 6 pane glazing inserts as an alternative.
Dimensions: Width = 250 mm (9 7/8"), Depth = 165 mm (6 1/2"), Height = 266 mm (10 1/2")
Kit (order code WK16) - Retail price: £40.00
The textured plastic sheets used to finish the kit as shown in the illustrations are available from us. You will need 2 sheets of bricks (M05), 1 sheet of roofing slates (M15) and 2 sheets of weatherboarding (M16), but it's not necessary to use our textured plastic sheets. You can use whatever materials you have to hand to achieve a superb result.
