SPECIAL OFFER: Bachmann Woody Bay Station model now at a reduced price of £52-00 (was £59-95).
Cast in resin, and fully coloured, this model looks great, straight out of the box.
The model - based on Woody Bay Station - is 195mm long, by 85mm deep so is not a 4mm scale model of the station. However, when seen against the Bachmann model, the PECO carriages align with the gutters just as the full-size heritage carriages do at the actual Woody Bay Station building. So still looks the part.
