A Hornby Dublo plastic Goods Shed Moulded Kit part No.5020, with crane.


The goods platform and main station body consist of cream-coloured plastic pieces that are slotted together by the user, with a grey plastic roof and green window frames, drainpipe and door parts. These plastic parts are all unpainted coloured plastic.

Additionally, the crane is metal with a painted red metal swivelling base, and yellow-painted metal arm, and a black hook and silver metal winding handle.


Assembling the goods station from its clip-together parts was quite easy, and model railway customers would probably have found the process fairly enjoyable. The alternative – paying someone in the factory to do the assembly – would have significantly increased the price, and meant that the station would have had to be shipped in a larger box.
