Bachmann Scenecraft OO Gauge 44-0055 GWR Pagoda Waiting Shelter and Corrugated Iron Storage Shed
Two useful GWR station buildings ideal for detailing a wayside station or as additions to a larger station complex.
Constructed from corrugated iron the GWR made several pre-fabricated buildings which could be quickly supplied and errected wherever required.
The pagoda design structure was erected as a waiting shelter at minor stations and halts and as a second shelter in place of a more substantial structure on the 'other' platform at passing stations. The pagoda could also used as general storeage building, which was the designed purpose of the second building in this set with a plain round roof and double doors. These buildings were used as store sheds at larger stations, but many smaller stations were provided with one as a secure goods store.
