Hmm yes possibly :P

After a few days haggling i've managed to secure a fantastic Depot / Warehouse / goods shed building complete with powered rolling door!!

Photo below shows the Warehouse behind the coaches... it's HUGE :D
(the start of the red brick goods shed can just be seen in the photo)

Not sure where it will go on the layout yet mind lol

and also from the same layout being dismantled a lovely Station building with Overall roof, should be great for my Steam station :D

This goes nicely with the open shed from the same layout i also bought earlier in the week :wink:

It's constructed using 5 Peco Overall Roof Kits and Metcalfe Models Card to 'exhibition' standard by a talented modeller that i've been in contact with, he's dismantling his current layout and so i managed to secure some of the items from it as seen in the photos in my posts above :wink:

So in answer to your question, it is a scratch built item and a one off, so i guess you would have to try making one yourself... and from what i've seen of your buildings on your layout, you are very good at that! :D

How much space have you got?

Looking back through this thread, you've bought literally dozens of buildings and some of them are massive.

My layout is 14'x11' ... there are about ten buildings plus the coking plant in all ... and even with that small amount, it's beginning to look crowded.

I'm confused!! :?:

So am i (and many others on here) :wink:

Layout is about 23ft by 16ft ish... have no intention to keep all the buildings, just getting lots of things i think will look good and once i've placed and moved them about shall sell off the ones that don't suit / fit on the layout... but unless i have them on the boards physically it is hard to picture them in place etc, so hence i buy... try... then sell again if it don't work out... Ahh the wonders of eBay :D
Got these two Alan Downs buildings this morn... hope they fit!! :lol:

Mark, I have to say those buildings look outstanding. Let me know when you want to sell them.

I've never heard of Alan Downs until now and there's not much about either by the look of it. Are they OO? HO? Something else maybe?

Well, the way I read that it sounds like you're offering me the jalopy for £5. If so I'll take it. You'll have to deliver it at that inflated price though :D
