This time last week I sat down and wrote the first of our weekly newsletters. As I put pen to paper for our second installment I sit listening to Pop Master on Radio 2 with a cuppa.
Monday saw us acquire a fantastic selection of stock from the stunning layout "Over Peover"; this is mostly made up of professionally kit built locomotives with some coaches, and all will be coming up for sale on our website over the coming days.
If you have purchased any O gauge locos from us in the past month or so then you will know that we have had our very own "bespoke Ellis Clark Trains foam lined" boxes (as Paddy in the office likes to call them) manufactured. After high demand these are now available to purchase on the website, over the phone, or via email.
Due to the amount of mail order items we send out, (and the delicate nature of O gauge items) we thought it best to provide a custom made box for protection, presentation, and transportation. Each box has been made with this in mind and has the following features: matte black outer finish with embossed silver logo and contact details; sturdy, thick, tough grey board; full foam lining with thicker foam on either end (good for surviving the odd drop); and polythene wrapping (this, wrapped around the loco, acts as a cradle to easily slide in and out of the box without catching any of the intricate details on the sides or front).
For those into OO, we will be adding some DDC sound diesel locomotives to our eBay site. The majority are from Bachmann, finished in BR blue, with the odd limited edition; certainly worth looking out for!
If you're into Gauge 1, specifically live steam, you may be interested to know that we have recently taken in an Aster JNR 4-6-4 locomotive in near mint condition. Feel free to get in touch via phone or email for any more information on this.
That's it from us for this week. If you feel anything was missing from this newsletter then please get in touch: we always appreciate your feedback.
Enjoy your weekend!
