This was the result.

There are, basically, 5 buildings, which combine to form the whole structure namely, from left to right on the Road Side view •

The Waiting Room

The Booking Hall

The Ticketing & Parcels Offices

The Station Master’s House

A lean-to shed next to the house

Since they are a unique element of the buildings I had to devise a way of making the stone arched window and door surrounds and the stone banding at first floor level. After several failed attempts I eventually devised a method of cutting the window and door surrounds individually from 0.25mm Slater’s Plasticard which was then painted in GWR Light Stone and fixed to the basic structures with contact adhesive. Each of the main building elements have been scratch built entirely from card using various Scalescenes scratch building sheets for the brickwork and roofing. The brickwork has been printed on 100gsm ‘linen weave’ paper which I think adds a small degree of relief to the brickwork without the over scale mortar joints that are evident in other modelling materials. Other parts that have been used are Scalelink GWR Window Frames and Doors, Langley white metal chimney pots, Scalelink etched brass GWR Platform Benches plus sundry Slater’s Plasticard sections.
