“ Brand: Hornby / Buildings: Public Buildings „
Evening all! A police station is surely a must for all but the most basic of model railway layouts. A particular benefit of this Country Police Station from the Horny Skaledale Collection is that it will fit into layouts from all eras. Be it sleepy branch lines, steam based express or modern diesel/electric services, the brick effect works well irrespective.
This product benefits from Hornby's usual skill in design, production, painting and finishing. Particularly good details include the small pane window and the small lantern above the door. The finish is also especially good: brick effects are sometimes not done well by Hornby, but this does not apply in this case. Add a period or modern police car with some figures for added realism.
Disadvantages of this product are common to Hornby and all model railway suppliers: be careful with the chimney pot and the lantern, particularly when small children are involved. Also, at £20 on Amazon, this model is not cheap in absolute terms.
