Malbourn Station Buildings

These models are based on standardised buildings used across the Great Western Railway network. The "Pagoda" hut was particularly widely used, and the model is built to published drawings. The main station building, however, is a semi-freelance design based on a cardboard kit of the brick-built original at Chalford, in conjunction with published photographs of similar buildings built from timber.

These models were built for an intended model railway layout based on the real station at Lambourn, which is where the fictitious name Malbourn came from.
