17D Miniatures Newsletter - Jan 2016

This Month:

* 17D Miniatures on Facebook

* Special Offer - 7 1/4" gauge Wheels

* Special Offer - 5" gauge Buffers

* Wagon Kits - progress being made

Firstly apologies to anyone who has been eagerly awaiting an Newsletter update - it's been far too long since the last. We have been really busy for many months now and don't get as much time to write newsletters as frequently as we should.

For those hitherto unaware however, there is an alternative way to keep up with all the goings on at 17D Miniatures - Facebook! If you haven't already added 17D to your "liked" pages visit now at:

and "Like our Page"! We update our FB page whenever something new or interesting crops up - and it is often the first place you will see any special offers and new products - simply because it's easy to do quickly, and we can of course upload photos easily.

If you "don't do" Facebook, you might want to re-consider: there are a lot of miniature railway and model engineering groups, as well as supplier pages worth keeping an eye on. Always lots of useful stuff. It's not all "....look what I had for breakfast today"

Another Special Offer - 5" gauge Turton & Platt type Locomotive Buffers
A repeat of a successfull offer we ran last year, with a worthwhile discount on these fine buffers.

Normally £72.50 per set of 4 - Offer price just £59.00. Stocks are limited at this price so don't wait too long!

Offer ends Feb 29th.

Wagon Kits

Some time ago we asked for input regarding our plans to produce some wagons in kit form.

Well, it has taken a while to get this project moving, but we are finally in the process of putting together an initial batch of 7 1/4" gauge Six Wheel Milk Tankers, as kits, at a cost of £850 each.

If this is of interest, please get in touch quickly as we have already started producing a few parts, and will need to know numbers VERY soon for laser cutting, castings etc for the first batch. Contact Tristan ASAP - info below.

In this particular instance the "kit" is not intended to be "table top screw together kits" but a set of laser cut parts, castings and machined components, for the home builder with a level of experience and access to some workshop tools, ie tig welding ideally.


And Finally....

It all seems to be about rushing, but if you are very quick you might catch a bargain via Ebay. We have a one-off Auction listing currently which ends 27 Jan, 2016 21:41:03 GMT.

8 x 5" gauge disc wheels on 4 axles - slightly marked ex-display stock.


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