No.1 vs No.2

Although the No.1 and No.2 signal cabins depict essentially the same building, on the more expensive No.2 version, the external steps that run up from ground level to the cabin's upper-floor side door stick out from the rest of the building, whereas in the No.1 version they are merely printed onto the side of a flat wall. On the No.1 Signal Cabin, the large windows are also just screenprinted onto metal, rather than being stamped or punched out.
