HO Scale bus stop
Posted by willy6 on Saturday, November 04, 2017 9:54 AM

I'm trying to find an HO scale modern bus stop. The ones with the bench, plexiglass walls and a roof. I've seen them somewhere but can't remember where. Any help would be appreciated.

There is one on Ebay, doesn't mention the manufacturer.  There are a few others without the plexiglass but similart to some in use in the US.

It would not be hard to build your own.

Kibri has one, out of stock at Walthers evidently.

https://www.walthers.com/bus-stop 

Faller has something more extensive and more pricey

https://www.walthers.com/modern-bus-light-rail-shelter-w-platform-kit-1-3-8-x-1-3-8-x-1-1-4-quot-3-4-x-3-4-x-3-2cm 

Faller also has a European shopping cart shelter (also out of stock at Walthers) which is amusingly similar to an American bus shelter, minus the carts of course.

And I thought I remembered seeing a different one in the catalog that was in the "figures" section not the structures section, but a quick glance found nothing like what I recall. 

The thought strikes me that you could come pretty close with some scratchbuilding that would start with a TicTac container or some similar consumer packaging of clear plastic with crisp right angles.

I did a search on Ebay for "bus shelter" under HO model trains and came up with a number of versions, all obviously for sale.

That is one of the ones showing up on the Ebay search I mentioned.

Thanks everyone, the Faller one is what i'm looking for. Scratch building was mentioned in one reply. If there was ever a model railroading skills report card given to modelers, I would get an "F" in scratch building and soldering.

I am with the Lion on this one spent years standing by a sign no shelter waiting for the bus.

Here, ours range from a simple sign, to a sign with a bench and some kind of shade structure (really an advertising board).  Seems like a lack of USA prototypes on the market?
