Brookwood Signal Box - Part 1

Modeltown Kit 13 - High Level Signal Box

Made from  a resin cast kit and to be painted with acrylic paint, this building will be the signal box for Brookwood Station.

Before fixing the cabin to the base and fitting the roof, interior painting and detail needs to be applied plus a warm coloured light and window glazing.

Below the floor I intend to locate LGB 55025 MTS Switch Decoder for the operation of   four  switches located at Brookwood Station.
