I have extended my layout recently and the second board now ends with an inglenook (3 tracks). The layout is 1930s GWR on the North Wales-English border. Instead of mine or quarry related buildings I want the track nearest the backscene to portray a different industry/industrial building. Low relief would be fine but there is room for small 'complete' buildings. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated. Something a bit more unusual perhaps? Many thanks.

Metcalfe Industrial kits are another alternative. I have used them on my Sovereign Street layout.

I Have used all the above suggested types of buildings on my layout, there are a number of different types of industrial buildings to choose from which you can modify to suit any type of industry.

Thank you for your replies everyone. I think my question was a bit confusing - I didn't really need manufacturers of kits but rather wanted suggestions for 1930s industries that I could model. Whenever I use the internet for suggested industries I seem to get very vague info rather than the industries that were established at the time. Any further suggestions would be welcome - so far I'm thinking of a foundry or maybe just a lineside warehouse.

Tracks end in a three track inglenook with backscene of hills behind. To the left a single track leads under a bridge which is used as a scenic break to the fiddleyard. Prior to the inglenook I have the line running back to a small dairy and from there the track runs back to a terminus station, cattle pen and goods shed. Can you help WTD or anyone else in model land?

I think some warehouses and perhaps a dairy as it is in the countryside.

I have (Or had) some of the origional Metcalfe warehouses somewhere. The early ones were a different design and I had to cut every window out etc. Todays kits are luxury! They are a different design but the same style.
