Newsletter January 2013


After a considerable period of research - and admittedly some procrastination! - we have finally bitten the bullet and set up acceptance of Credit and Debit cards both via our webshop, and by phone. This may be good news or bad news dependent on your individual ability to withstand temptation :-)

Much as we always welcome orders, please don't all rush at once waving your plastic, but form an orderly queue!!



Recent additions to our range include some new wheels and some rather nice buffers. We are also now able to offer our 5 Plank Wagon as a 7 plank version.

The wheels are descended from our 5" gauge bogies introduced a few months back, and fill a gap in our range for straightforward plain disc wheels, suited to a variety of projects. We can offer these in both 5" gauge and 7 1/4" gauge at pretty competitive prices.

On the subject of buffers, we have promised a number of people that we would be developing some LMS / BR type oval head locomotive buffers, to follow on from the Turton & Platt type round head buffers introduced some months ago.  These are now available in 7 1/4" gauge, and very shortly in 5" gauge.  We will also be offering these in sets of two oval and two round head buffers for fitment to a variety of steam locomotives that require both types.

For more information on these new items, pease visit our website, or contact us.


Just a reminder that we are NOT exhibiting at this years Alexandra Palace Model Engineering Exhibition, due to pressure of work!

We are however beavering away in the workshop with customer orders as well as some new and exciting projects. So we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at Harrogate in a few months time. In the mean time, we welcome your enquiries and are always happy to hear from you, if you can't wait until Harrogate!


That's all for now. As always, please get in touch if you have any questions - we are always delighted to hear from you.
