Make Scenecraft Central to Your Plans

Last modified date

On Friday 14th June 2019, Bachmann Europe Plc announced several new additions to its Scenecraft range of OO scale buildings during the Great Central Railway’s Model Event. Fittingly, the models are based on the structures found at the GCR’s Rothley Station.

GCR Green & Cream

The models have previously been available in Green & Cream livery – originally used by the GCR in the early 20th century and the condition in which Rothley Station is currently presented. Due to popular demand these models make a welcome return along with the addition of two further colour schemes of Brown & Cream, suitable for the 1920s-1940s and as Quorn & Woodhouse Station appears today, and Maroon & Cream harking back to the 1950s-1960s when the line was under the control of BR Midland Region.

GCR Brown & Cream

Each set consists of a high-level Station Entrance and Staircase, a Station Booking Office and Canopy, a Waiting Room and Toilet. Matching Road Bridges are also available to complete the station scene. Each model is hand-painted with features including etched windows & signs and separately applied detail parts such as fire-buckets and lamps.

GCR Maroon & Cream

The models were available to purchase from Bachmann stockists during the Model Event and can be purchased from all Bachmann stockists shortly afterwards. Details of the items are as follows:
