Bachmann Europe are excited to announce a brand new range of OO scale buildings and accessories. These ready made structures will be available after the New Year.


GWR Pagoda Shed

A diverse range of Scenecraft items will be available that will enhance any OO scale model Railway. The Scenecraft buildings will include industrial, residential and line side subjects.


Provender Store BR Type

Different Scenecraft items can be used in conjunction with each other to form larger buildings and structures. These combinations are highlighted on the packaging. All buildings are fully painted and decorated and can be sited on your layout straight from the box.


Corrugated Goods Shed

This fantastic new range of buildings are a perfect complement to the well established scenic products from Woodland Scenics and Bachmann. Used together, it will allow the beginner or experienced modeller to create a realistic landscape in which to run their Branchline locomotives and rolling stock

They look very nice & should be very useful additions to what is already available.

Are they based on any particular buildings, in the way that the Hornby ones are ?

The station building caught my eye on the Bachmann stand at Warley; it is indeed very nice.

Some buildings are based firmly on prototypes, like the provender store, pagoda shed and there is an LNER brick concrete signal box too (with removable roof and separate doors to position open).

Some items are suitable generic, like the station which is useful for many locations with it's familiar gabled style, but probably doesn't exsist exactly as modelled.

There is a launch range of about 55 items coming. In the shops from February onwards with expansive plans to tackle some varied subjects.

Glad you like them.

Lord and Butler was chatting with Bachmann's Dennis Lovett at the same time as I was and we were musing as to Lord and Butlers retirement on the proceeds of sales of the coal mine buildings to his customers in South Wales.

There is a signal box that looks very art deco 1930's concrete SR but in actual fact is an LNER example. It is almost certain however that it will be snapped up by SR modellers.

A very nice range of modular buildings with a towny theme with many from a later period than those currently on offer from the "competion".

Show pictures to appear in due course.

Happy modelling

The box is LNER, (Signaling Record Society LNER Type 15, built 1944-54) and found at varying locations across the LNER - certainly in Scotland and the NE Area and almost certainly in the Southern Area as well (Stratford is the same general style but a much bigger varient)

They certainly look nice, and some interesting models in the range. It will be interesting to compare them with Skaledale when they come out.

Bachmann press release:

Scenecraft OO buildings Warley debut

Bachmann Europe PLC unveiled its new range of OO gauge buildings at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition during the weekend of 1st/2nd December 2007.

The buildings produced in resin to a very high standard will be available early in the New Year. They include a number of railway lineside buildings and those from an urban and industrial setting.

The buildings will be delivered ready painted and in some cases weathered and range from £7-60 to £28.00.

David Haarhaus, Sales & Marketing Manager for Bachmann Europe said "the new range has been developed to compliment existing products. We have concentrated on town and industry rather than rural, to enable modellers to add some sources of traffic for their railway. Owners of private owner coal wagons were certainly interested in the coal mining buildings. All buildings are copies of prototypes and many visitors to our stand were trying to work out where the originals could be found".
