The new announcements were made via a YouTube Premiere this morning, 3rd November.
First up in the announcements was an addition to the Scenecraft range. Like all of the products, the returning Sectional Lineside Hut, first released a number of years ago, is highly detailed and is hand painted and will make a great addition to any lineside scene.

Next up was a range of other lineside models, including a messroom, fuelling point pump house, lineside cabinets, small kiosk, concrete bus shelter and modern toilets, as well as others.
A 00 gauge Holiday Coach has also been announced, which comes in either Green and White or Red and White.
Lots more lineside and non lineside scenery and buildings were announced this morning, so make sure to watch the video at the end of this article for more information.
