Peco Announce a Highland Signal Cabin

I had not expected to ever say this, but I can write a post on Highland Miscellany about a forthcoming Highland Railway product from one of the mainstream manufacturers!

In this case this is going to be from Peco and it is based on the cabin at Helmsdale (Helmsdale South).  This is still existent and has been out of use for some time but has been recently refurbished.  It is in 4mm only at present (but who knows about the future?) and seems to represent its present condition.  As I understand it, it is going to be a laser cut kit and is due to be released later this year.

When it comes out, I will certainly buy one and review it here but in the meantime here are some photographs of the initial prototype courtesy of Paul Marshall Potter.

And here are a few pictures of the real thing from a few years back.

  1. Reblogged this on Max Stafford's Kennel and commented:
    This is a very welcome development and I hope that this, along with Hornby’s J36 and Rails’812 are heralds of a growing interest by the industry’s big names in Scotland’s rich indigenous railway heritage.

  2. Is it available in P4 though Mark?!

  3. Very ‘Kyle of Tongue’ I thought. Lovely.
