A railway worthy of a starring role in any Agatha Christie novel!

October 14th, 2010

As lovers of anything Agatha Christie ourselves, St. Mary Mead railway station by Jackie Osborn from Kent, really stood out – we could just imagine Miss Marple or Poirot heading out from this station on their next sleuthing adventure!  Here, Jackie explains how she created her 1950’s station.

I am an avid Agatha Christie fan and having watched numerous episodes of Miss Marple and Poirot repeatedly, decided to convert the Village Hall in to a 1950’s railway station.  I just love the quaint little railway stations of yesteryear with their cosy waiting rooms that had real fires in to keep off the chill from the platform.

The hall itself is divided into four sections using hardboard for the walls.  Most of the decoration was done using lengths of wood, skirting, dado rail and acrylic paint.  I have also introduced some items from other dolls house kits.  The writing was achieved by dipping a tapestry needle in paint.

The frosted glass effect was a sandwich bag and the platform roof was made of corrugated cardboard.

The model itself sits on a plinth to raise it up and the   plinth was constructed from four pieces of wood screwed together.
