While trolling through the latest edition of Bylines magazine vol 13 issue 9 august 2008 I found an almost exact match for the little redbrick waiting room put out by Hornby as one of the early Skaledale buildings .I cannot find a reference number to it at present .Its the little red brick affair with a single chimney and and a canopy .Its is an almost exact match for Suckley Station's waiting room . it was a later addition and nothing like the more light railway appearence of the main station building .Suckley ended up with the GWR as part of the Worcester Bromyard branch .Probably everyone knows this except me but I thought I would chime in anyway just in case .Doesnt look like the model is available any more .

I think that's part of the Skaledale marketing strategy - establish a reputation for limited runs which makes any model an automatic limited edition then sit back and watch a sizeable number of collectors buy them....

I better buy an oast house while I can .Incidently they had oast houses in Suckley according to its website .I thought hops were grown in Kent mainly.I am making a small Southern type layout starting with a Kent and East Sussex type station that will initially serve as my very small terminal.

& of course those who may just want some items for a future product.

Must buy a Margate Clock Tower (sorry - "Jubilee Clock Tower") in case I ever want to make a model of Margate Sea Front complete with hordes of SLG's !

To my mind it reminds me of the old Airfix/Dapol kit.

I've got one of those, the clock tower I mean, - Hornby could make a packet selling it as a souvenir of Margate. Now who is going to be the first to ask what SLG stands for?

That having been said I must get the windmill which is based on Drapers Mill here in not so sunny Margate!

Not I Dave, but I am pleased that you did.

Either I am particulary slow this wet Saturday morning (no, not hung over, though given the weather maybe that would not be so bad) or Brian has thrown some random collection of letters together to stimulate everybodies interlect.

Me I am going for the "I'm slow" choice today.
