Kernow models announce Boscarne Junction LSWR Ground Frame Hut

Following on from the announcement by Kernow models of the London South Western Railway (LSWR) Type 3 signal box based on Boscarne Junction  back in August, I am pleased to advise following a suggestion made, that they have today announced a further commission via Bachmann Scenecraft of the LSWR style Ground frame hut that was also located at the Boscarne Junction sidings.

This type of ground frame ‘Hut’ / ‘shed’ / ‘cabin’ was pretty much a standard LSWR design and was also used for ground frames & other purposes throughout the system therefore its use would not be restricted to only a model of Boscarne Junction.

The Ground Frame hut, reference 44-182Z will cost £14.99 once available (expected end of 2013) but can pre-ordered, with a £2 saving, at £12.99 from its dedicate page on the Kernow Model Centre website here.

  1. Looks a nice model. I do wish retailers would give the internal measurements so one could judge whether it would cover a point motor. I have ordered one anyway to test it.

    1. I will try to get the dimensions for you but I think it might be too small to cover a point motor and may also have a solid resin base. I will see what I can find out for you.

  2. Lovely model. Looks like the waiting room that used to be at Harmans Cross Station which was a ground frame hut before possibly at East Stoke.

    I also like the N and OO gauge flat topped clay wagons. To me they are passable representations of the china clay wagons at Furzebrook although there are some detail differences.
