Station 3 and pump

Station 3 (Blackbridge) is based on the Hornby Skaledale model (which is the old retained station at Upton Upon Severn in Worcestershire, a station that I know well). I have made a couple of modifications to the model, including adding shutters to the tower windows to keep out the 1/76th scale pigeons.

Station 2's pump is presently on stand-by duties at this one pump station.

Have one these Hornby Skaledale Fire Stations as my Brookhampton station in my model fire brigade. I never knew the Hornby Fire Station was modeled on a real life one so thank you for the information about the real station. The real station that Bachmann did a model of (Studley in Warwickshire) is not far from Upton so the model manufacturers obviously gained their inspiration from the south west midlands.

Yes indeed George, the Bachmann model is based on Studley, it's just unfortunate that that station was recently closed.
