Wagon Draw Result

Winner: A. Caldwell, from Wiltshire.

Congratulations to our winner who will be receiving his wagon in the very near future.  Commiserations to the less lucky, but thanks to everybody who joined our mailing list to take part in the draw. We hope you will find it worthwhile in the long run - read on...

Special Offer - for Mailing-List Subscribers Only

So you didn't win the draw? But all is not lost. If you would really like to own one of our wagons, then we have an offer which might help and which is only available to subscribers to our newsletter:

For 4 Weeks only - 10% Discount - on all orders for ready to run wagons.

Note: Orders must be place between March 21st and April 17th. To qualify for the discount, a deposit of 25% must be paid when ordering. Balance to be paid on completion of the model (currently quoting 4-6 weeks delivery, subject to change depending on demand) Orders will be dealt with on "1st come 1st served basis" so don't delay too long!

New Model "Conflat A"

We have been desperately trying to make time, between building customers' wagons, to develop some new models. Well, the first is now half built as I write, and so should appear on the website very soon.

The model is a "Conflat A" Container Flat Wagon, and although at first glance this prototype may seem to be a simple wagon, in fact it is somewhat more complex than our standard chassis wagons and will also be our most detailed to date. We hope to have a finished model to show you on the website in about 10 days.
Asking price (ready to run) is expected to be in the region of £435 in 5" gauge, and £529 in 7.25" gauge  respectively, and which, for the level of detail included, we believe to be excellent value for money.

Date for your Diary

We will be exhibiting our range, including several new products, on Stand 96 at the The National Model Engineering and Modelling Exhibition, at the Great Yorkshire Showground,  Harrogate, from May 13th  to 15th inclusive.

We hope you can make it and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.

And Finally....

In the meantime remember us when planning your next build project - you may be surprised at what we can help with. We don't just build wagons, but can offer assistance with bespoke parts and models, laser cutting, sheet folding, large (and small) steel bar cut to size, fabrication & tig welding, etc..... And advice comes free - just give us a call!
