Model Railway Scenery Review -
Hornby Loading Stage & Crane
Hornby Skaledale Loading Stage and Crane - R8605
The detail on this Hornby skaledale loading stage and crane
appears to have been given extra attention.
Like the coal staithes the wooden part of the loading stage
looks good and highlights the imperfections of the wood used to
create it, and also makes both the wooden crates and sand bags
stand out on the top of the loading stage.
I personally feel that the loading stage would have looked
better if you could actually move the sand bags and crates
yourself rather than being glued down in place.
The black plastic feeling crane is detachable from the loading
stage and can be turned from hanging over the loading stage to
hanging over an open wagon on the track behind.
The attention to detail on the bricks on both the sides of the
loading stage and the front adds to the realism look of this
scenery item. The back which faces the wagons being loaded looks
moldy which I feel adds to the realism.
