Platform Edging

#1

Post by Nokonium » Tue Dec 04, 2018 4:05 pm

I have a miss match with the platform edge (bought way back) and the station buildings. The station buildings are Hornby Granite and the platform edges Peco Lineside LK-60, a brick finish. The two do not look right together.I know that Peco do one with a stone finish but that means a lot of wasted bits. Nearest I can find to what I want is a card, Metcalfe M0057 00/H0 Cut Stonework M1 Style. Can you get from anywhere either just the Peco self adhesive cut stone paper or another manufacturers self adhesive cut stone paper?

Have a look at the textured self adhesive range from Redutex via DCC Supplies. It is an excellent product but occasionally difficult to find in stock. A wide range that should have something that matches.

Thanks, that looks great.... but Stone Block Grey Redutex 076BS111 is out of stock :? You did warn me :(

Seriously that looks ideal so I'd better pre-order.

Out of stock has been a problem, on and off, for a while unfortunately. If you do get some I don’t think you will be disappointed. I have used it to line my turntable pit, the interior of an engine shed and I recall BB used the tiled roof sheets on his Metcalfe station building.

Found another supplier in Spain (possibly the manufacturer themselves).

Strangely, they don't have an option to ship to Spain - I was going to order some to be sent to my hotel where I will be soon. I think the 7.43 Euros postage is a bit high to Britain.

It is an impressive range I can't understand why there are not more distributors or as a minimum DCC Components kept adequately stocked.

They seem to have everything in stock - depends how much you want it. It really is great stuff to use - easy to cut, self adhesive. Thanks for that site info. Steve - I may order some and see how the delivery works out. BB

When I try the link it says not accessible from your country. Am I doing something wrong?
