This is a scratch built replica model in 16mm scale of “Exeter” station, that was part of my previous Gibbergunyah Railway that I completed in 1995. The actual station is on the main Southern line between Sydney and Melbourne, and is heritage listed.

The prototype Exeter station.

The overall length of the model is 1500mm or 5 foot. The boards are pine, glued to a sub bases of MDF. The corrugated roof I made out of .03mm aluminium damp course, which I cut to size and then clamped in a sandwich die, made from aluminium step tread.
