New signal box from Skaledale

Hornby produces a Settle & Carlisle line themed box.

Hornby Skaledale signalbox

NOT STRICTLY SPEAKING a product of the diesel & electric era, Hornby has released a new signal box in its resin Skaledale scenic accessories range (Cat Ref. R8853, RRP £15.00).

Based on the real box at Settle station (preserved by the Friends of the Settle & Carlisle Line) similar buildings are still in railway use around the country (this is apparently a Midland Railway Type 4a of 1890 heritage). Hornby calls its model Skaledale East Signal box. The previously released Skaledale East station building and waiting shelter, meanwhile, are based on Dent station.

Also new is R8790 Cattle Dock/Pen, priced £8.25.
