[MOC] Steward's Glen Station

Recommended Posts

Here's a fictional English branch line station, set on the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway in the early 1920s. It features interior and exterior lights, a removable roof, and my first fully tiled platform.

Trackside view - the switch for the interior light is above the side window.

The switch for the exterior lights is just below the window.

The interior - the brick-built doors open and the central floor plate is removable to access the battery.

The phone box is based on the early K1 type, introduced in 1921 (when the L&YR was still extant).

And finally, a couple shots with a train. The locomotive is based on the L&YR Class 27.

Thanks for looking!

Not super wild about the roof, but that could be rectified with a lot of tiles.

Lovely lights. Really dig the door and the pine tree, too.

Cute building, cute train!

As someone said I think this really needs an interesting texture on the roof

Great detailing on the building! But with so much going on with the background details and the foliage it really pops.

Thank you! I agree that a tiled roof would look better. One of my self-imposed constraints with this build was to only use parts that I already had, so I reluctantly stuck with studs.

Thanks! I think a different roof style would have looked better too, if I had 264 1x2 tiles!

Thanks! Every station needs a place to eat and pass the time, because trains are always late!

What a wonderful rural station. I like the doors and the engine looks perfect with it.

Love this scene, it's so atmospheric. And without the description I would have guessed it would have been a station in England, so that's nicely executed I'd say!

You definately did a great job with this. I love the English style design of both the station and the train. Looks like something I'd see on a BBC show or on Thomas & Friends. Love how you used James' basis btw. Are you from the UK by any chance? I've noticed that a lot of your MOCs are centered around British culture. Just thought I'd ask.

Thank you! I'm from the good old U.S. of A...I'm just a bit of an Anglophile!

That's understandable. I'm also an enthusiast of British culture as I love British railways along with using words like "Hullo", "Bloke" or "Petrol".

Very nice, suggests a small British railway station nicely. 

What’s the inspiration behind the name of the station, “Steward’s Rest?”?

Thank you! I spent a lot of time combining various elements of English place names to come up with one that I liked. I had finally settled on "Abbot's Glen," thinking that sounded English, rural, and generic, and had a nice Medieval sound to it. Unfortunately, checking Google Earth revealed that that name was already in use...by an "inappropriate" resort in Vermont! :sick: Meeting someone named Stuart gave me the last bit of inspiration, so I changed it to "Steward's Glen" at the last minute!
