coal stage kit

Coal Stage & Inspection Pit

Two versions of the loco yard coaling stage are included. The generic version is suitable for all small loco yards and has a coal retaining wall of sleepers. The Swanage version is based on the prototype that existed throughout the lines pre-heritage days. It should be used alongside the small water tower available from this range to create an authentic Swanage scene. The Inspection/Ash pit is also from Swanage but suits any small loco yard. It is designed to fit 00 gauge track and will also fit finescale track. Coal heap not included.
