Newsletter - November 2011

This issue is just a quick update.

We are pleased to report that  we enjoyed a very worthwhile time at the Midland Model Engineering Exhibition, and subsequently have plenty to keep us busy for a few weeks.

1) Gunpowder Van

Mentioned as forthcoming in our last newsletter, we have now completed the first of these, two which have now been shipped to Australia! We have added a page to the website for this model - available in both 5" and 7.25" gauge - with photo of a finished model and the usual details.

2) GWR Shunters Truck.

This is now a definite addition to the range, we will be commencing the build of the first model in the next couple weeks. Keep an eye on the website - we will add a photo and details as soon as the first is completed.

3) Bespoke Projects

Visitors to our stand at the Midland Model Engineering Exhibition last month, will know that we were displaying a couple of more unusual 7.25" models which were custom built for a customer. For the curious, we have now placed photos of these on the website (Bespoke Design and Build page), to illustrate the fact that we are always happy to consider a challenge, should you have any ideas for something we don't yet produce!

4) LMS 8F project

Our own 7.25" LMS 8F project continues, and we will shortly be adding more parts to the small but growing range of parts for this and other loco's. So if building loco's is your thing, please check the website from time to time, or give us a call.


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