Weighbridge Office

Weighbridge Office

A late 19th century office for a large goods yard. The prototype was built for Bradford & Sons at Crewkerne Somerset. The business operated a large coal yard from a private siding and also milled corn for animal feed on site.  One end of the building contained weighing scales connected to the weighbridge immediately outside.

The brickwork of the model is Flemish brick bond with Ham stone quoins. Internal decoration is provided, without floor or scales. An Avery weighbridge and simulated bullhead rail barrier is also included.

Office Footprint: 180 mm x 70 mm including overhangs.
Weighbridge & barrier: 80 mm x 70 mm

Required Skill Level: Advanced (Please see Home page for definition)
