How to build a cement terminal

Industrial activities are a brilliant corner filler for a model railway. DAN EVASON picks up a Gaugemaster kit with European heritage and shows how it can be built for a British scene.


THE RAILWAY built up around industrial operations, but in more recent times road based haulage has become common place alongside for short haul work. Cement traffic is a case in point as suppliers need to deliver within specified times to ensure the product is suitable for use in building projects.

This project takes a Gaugemaster Fordhampton ‘OO’ kit for a road served terminal as its basis which is ideal as a small space filler on a post-1970s era model railway. The kit was originally produced by Faller for the European market, but don’t let that put you off. As you can see from this build, the kit is perfectly suited to a British scene as well.
