Catalogue description

CITY STATION OUTFIT D2

"This Outfit has been specially designed for building either of two splendid city stations.
The Terminal Station illustrated on the left is an imposing model in the modern style, with three platforms covered by an arched roof span in celluloid. The front of the station, with its steps, awning and clock tower is particularly realistic.
The Through Station shown on the right is an equally effective model, built up from the same components and ideal for through running on a large layout. Price 25/- "
