Coal merchants were booming back in the early 20th century, with the demand for coal being higher than ever before. They were often located as close as physically possible to the railway line in a busy goods yard or rural station yard, allowing the heavily laden coal wagons to be unloaded directly into the staithes.

Our realistic, heavily weathered, railway sleeper based set of oo / ho scale coal staithes will add period realism your layout with ease.

Supplied as a download and print Adobe PDF file, you can add as many coal staithes as your layout needs from a single purchase (just print out as many as you require), plus there’s plenty of scope for customisation too.

The kit comes in a fully weathered creosoted sleeper finish and includes the following features:

  • Fully weathered finish for ultimate realism
  • Optional base plinth
  • Designed to be constructed using recycled card to save on build costs
  • No visible cut card edges
  • Ready to be filled with real or imitation coal
  • Dimensions: w: 105mm x d: 42mm x h: 24mm

    So, so easy to make and so handy for all sorts of uses on your layout.

    Used 2mm balsa wood as the basis for the model then covered with the printed sheets. Makes a very realistic coal staith.
