Product Description

An O (7mm) gauge model of the NSR Signal Box, based on Elton Crossing, formerly at Sandbach, now preserved on the Churnet Valley Railway, Staffordshire. Modelled as it is was before preservation, but without any name boards.


Parts include to make complete model are: base with full depth door to locking room, signal cabin, two internal roof tie bars, internal roof insert (removable so you can add interior easily). posable internal door external roof, stove pipe & porch with steps. would make a great detailing kit for the interior.


Clifton/Consall, Cheddleton/Elton generic Signal box (O)


The Wooden part of the box sits on top of the brick section. Try and get it square as we have not

incorporated any locating points. (The Clifton & Consall models have small notches under the

wooden structure to help locate them on the support brackets).

The stairs\porch will be placed up to the body of the building. The door can be positioned as you

wish. (Note –this is not possible on the external porch door on the Cheddleton model – only the

internal door, due to how it is moulded) With the extra windows, you have the options to model as

open or closed. Any open windows should have a fine metal bar over them mid way up to prevent

“falling” out the open window. An old paper clip or fuse wire should suffice.

Detail the interior as you see fit with frame, stove and instrument block shelf of your


Slot in the support beam(s) and slide in the false roof.

Place the main roof over the top and slide in the chimney. Adjust to suit, but the top should be

below the roof ridge line.

You may wish to use a small bit of tin foil to replicate the lead flashing capping the tiles on the

Cheddleton/Elton porch roof – see photos on Google for reference.

Paint in your chosen colours.
