Well this should please a few modellers building layouts that are not just track but contain scenery portions. Just released is an N Scale 2-pack kit of the Victorian Railways departmental residences that were such a common site from the 1950’s till present. The kits are laser cut 1.2mm mosquito plywood (ex WW2 planes) and feature detailed instructions, parts list, window glazing, history notes, suggested colour schemes and brick paper for the chimneys.
There is a 3-bedroom LH elevation house and a 2-bedroom RH elevation house, which will give modellers plenty of scope to adapt to their liking. Price for the 2pack is $45.00
Top 3 Bedroom house and below is the 2 bedroom version.
Another N scale scenery detail item from Spirit Design is a new range of country signs relating to the Victorian Railways and road signage from the 1940’s till present. The packs features 75 signs that contain Railway crossing signs from different eras with wooden and enamel varieties, plus modern era aluminium versions. Pre 1973 Stop signs and post 1973 era ones. Caution boards, railway gate 4ft target signs, speed restrictions and normal running boards plus local running shed engine and catch point boards. All printed double sided on satin card stock where required. Price per pack $5.00
