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.
The ‘Boscarne Ground Frame’ was located at the other end of Boscarne Exchange Sidings from the LSWR type 3 signal box already announced.
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.
This is a very welcome and logical extension to the Kernow Model Centre range of Bachmann Scenecraft resin buildings and together with the LSWR type 3 signal box will make a nice set or either can be deployed alone depending on the location being modelled.
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.
