Hi guys I remember seeing a website that was on the model railway directory once that sold modern detailing bits for a modern N gauge depot/station scene but I cannot find it. I only ask as I am wanting to detail my depot area but I can't find the details I require i.e. fuelling point, warning signs and other bits and bobs that appear around the usual depot scene.

Does anyone know where I can get these bits from so I don't have to scratchbuild them as I am no good at scratchbuilding stuff.

Also one of my buildings that Upnick built for me I am wanting to make the inside of the building a little more real by adding work benches but at the moment the walls have been painted black. I'm going to be having a go at making a work bench out of plasticard but is there anywhere that I can get something that would give like a picture scene that I could stick to the walls of the inside of the building to give it a more 3d detail effect?

Hmm, railway modelling is a practical construction hobby so you are at least going to have to paint things and put together some basic kits. I have used and recommend the following bits for depots. You can purchase them over the internet or from specialist retailers/traders at exhibitons. I'd suggest visiting the 'International N Gauge Show ' in Leamington in September for the biggest range and best choice;

Ratio (oil drums and palettes),
N Brass (pallisade fencing),
BHE (skips and point levers),
Merit (cable drums),
Avis (street lights),
Hornby (Portaloo and garden sheds),
KRS (point motors and relay boxes),
TPM (depot tower lights),
Shire Scenes (telephone boxes),
Knightwing (portacabins),
S-Kits (sheds, gas cylinders and casks),
Peco (AWS ramps and buffer stops)
and ERG (station and depot signs).

thanks for the list Grahame. I've done a search on Google and can't find the company called ERG who do the station and depot signs. Do you have a link at all?
