Brent Station Signs RMWeb

A Nod to Brent

Layout built by Robin Sweet

“A Nod to Brent” is well known to users of RMWeb and appeared in the January 2017 issue of BRM Magazine. It features the Brent layout built by Robin Sweet. Rob approached Sankey Scenics when he wanted posters for the island platform building. Many of these had to produced from scratch to match those that could be seen in a period photograph. It took a long time to devise these but the end result was pleasing. Visit RMWeb to see more of Robin's layout.

Model Railway Pub Sign for Oakenshaw

Some signage supplied to Redditch Model Railway Club for their atmospheric layout 'Oakenshaw' based in West Yorkshire.


Redditch MRC

Based on the Aire Valley line in West Yorkshire, this layout is based in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The railway is surrounded by mills and stone buildings typical of the area and the layout really captures the look of the district. Sankey Scenics produced these pub signs together with the girder bridge sign. To see more pictures visit the Redditch Model Railway Club website.

Special Train Packs

Model Railway Titled Trains

We often get requests for bespoke coachboards and on occasions complete special train packs. The customer has specified the name, colours and details and left the rest to us. Here are a few examples of packs that we have put together. If you are interested in having your own unique Titled Train created then simply contact us via the Contacts Page

Model Rail Pub Signs

As well as our stock packs we also offer customised pub signs. These packs allow the modeller to have the exact Public House and Brewery Company names that are required. They will give an authentic atmosphere to your models and layout. Very few pubs are similar and therefore packs include a wide range of signage in a variety of sizes to suit most locations whether you are converting a kit or scratch-building your pub - where you place the signs is up to you.

Customised Pub signs for OO gauge model railways

The packs are available in five styles / colours and will allow you to convert card kits such as those in the Metcalfe and Superquick ranges as well as models made of other materials such as those produced in resin by Hornby and Bachmann. Packs also feature some signage that will allow you to specifically convert some Metcalfe card kit into pubs. Included are some backdrops, stained glass panels and a bar. There are even legible Licensee Plates for above doorways that are customised with the name that you want!
