KMRC Skrifa - Product Focus - Ratio N Gauge Signalling
Now in stock is one of the latest kit from Ratio - and one for N gauge modellers is the 259 Ratio Wartime ARP Flat Roof Signal Box Kit. Similar to the previous kit in OO/HO, the kit builds up into one of the wartime "air raid precaution" style signal boxes. Provided with a strengthened concrete flat roof, these buildings were designed to withstand damage caused by a bomb blast, an added risk for any railway installation during World War II. Not necessarily aesthetically pleasing to the eye they nevertheless became a feature of many railway locations around the UK. That said, not many remain standing today, as new signalling schemes have rendered them obsolete.
Produced in brick-coloured plastic, this injection-moulded kit will build into a model with a footprint of 78mm x 29mm. A separate moulding of white window frames completes the kit and the modeller should use the plastic packaging to represent the window glazing. The finishing touches can be added by painting
We also recommend the Signal Box Interior kit Ratio no. 224. The two will go together perfectly. Ratio also produce the folllowing N gauge signal box kits:
PECO NB-3 PECO Lineside N - Signal Box (Brick/timber)
