Just picked this part of a Bing platform up on eBay after the seller accepted me offer.
After picking up a Wellls-Brimtoy raised station this past weekend, I really liked it but hate how it lacks a back. Besides buying another station to make it symmetrical, Which I didn’t want to do, I was stuck with placing it somewhere that the back wouldn’t be seen, which, with my current layout, meant having it face away from the track unless I’d make some major changes. With this piece, I don’t have to put it against a wall or worry as much about strategic placement because it adds a backside to the station. Once it arrives in the next 4 weeks( lol) I’ll be sure to post pictures.
I saw one like this that I was watching. I think it had railing on three sides. I am looking for one that has the two horizontal bars through the stanchions instead of the balusters. Yours will look good with your station though.
George, I got lazy and posted a picture from a website instead of the one that I got on ebay with a red underside and yellow rubber stamped "Made in Germany". Curious- particular reason that you're looking for one with 2 bars perpendicular to the stanchions? Trying to complete a set? I know this piece I bought was separated from the station platform with which it originally could be placed alongside or with a rail line or something else in between to add the number of lines the platform could service
I’ve seen this one listed, but it’s not in my budget and I already have the canopy.
I like the look of it and the railing is similar to the railing on the station I built for my layout.
Good stuff George! Admittedly,I’d prefer the canopy . Thanks for showing this!
