GCR Birdcage Bridge and walls laser-cut kit for OO Gauge
Key Publishing has partnered with PJM Models to offer laser-cut Great Central Railway ‘Birdcage Bridge’ kits for ‘OO’ gauge. Order today for immediate despatch for £79.99.
Option B: Bridge and supporting laser-cut brick walls
Key Publishing and PJM Models have released their second kit – a ‘OO’ gauge laser-cut model of the GCR ‘Birdcage Bridge’ which once crossed the West Coast Main Line at Rugby.
This CAD-designed laser-cut plywood and MDF kit was originally designed for Pete Waterman’s Making Tracks 2 layout in 2022 as a scenic break across the Rugby end of the layout, but is now being made available exclusively through the Key Model World Shop with brand-new parts.
The bridge will be available in two forms – bridge only without parapet walls (Option A – MOD68) and as a combined bridge and walls kit (Option B – MOD69). All components are laser-cut and each kit comes with instructions.
The total size of the bridge is 435mm x 140mm. The total height is 83mm and the design caters for a double track main line to be added inside the Birdcage Frame.
The bridge parapet walls are cut from 4mm thick MDF and feature laser-engraved brick details. They have been created over length allowing the bridge to be set square or skewed depending upon the layout design.
Deluxe Materials Roket Rapid superglue is a suitable adhesive for assembly and builders will also need to supply paint to finish the structure.
Instructions and parts diagrams are included with the kit and you can see our full build guide in HM193, July 2023, or online at www.keymodelworld.com/building-a-diesel-depot where you can watch our full video series following construction of our new diesel depot layout, Natford.
