Is there a cheaper station platform than the super LGB50340?

Pola & Piko do platform sections but they don't butt right up to the rail like LGB do.

Plus you can get it in longer lengths, saves lots of joints

But if you want a Track Level one then 2-3 mm Perspex works just fine with a little spraying and coal dust.

I have some that I no longer plan to use if you don't mind good second hand. I'll do some pics and post them, but it may be a week or so as things are at the moment.

If anyone has the PIKO equivalent, I could use a couple....

I've had a root around and found 18 pieces, 12 of the side platforms and six of the centre sections. There may be some more somewhere. I'd describe them as very good condition apart from three side pieces, two of which have the one of the little prongs damaged and one which has two of them damaged. However, they are all perfectly usable.

I'll try and take some photos tomorrow and send you them by PM.

According to all the dealers, there are 12 pieces per set, which I would take to be eight side sections and four centre ones, but all the pictures ahow 10 pieces, eight side ones and two centre ones.

Good Day Sir.
Don't bother with the pics. It has taken me two years to rebuild my garden layout where I was let down by a wood supplier, in my 81st year time is valuable. Please send me forty pounds worth. Regards, Derek (Van5)
