Newsletter No. 3

Another hectic week of business has seen plenty go out and even more come in! Today I have been sorting through a collection of mint/boxed Hornby OO steam locos - many of which limited editions and a lovely little collection of Bemo HOm. I have also taken in 3 stunning kit built locomotives to include a Q1, Merchant Navy and a T9. These have all been professionally built and pained with fully sprung wheel-sets, Mashima Motors with Flywheels and in the case of the Merchant and Q1, professional weathering.

With Warley being just under a month away we have also begun preparations! We've just had a new O gauge stepped display stand built to exhibit some of our in-stock models and have started siphoning off a large amount of new Hornby to be sold at heavily discounted prices!

As many of you know, a few months back I began stocking Darstaed 2-Rail items. The first of these were their 2 rail bogie tankers built with course scale wheels. I am Very happy to announce that the next batch of wagons to be released will be Well Wagons available with Slaters fine scale wheels and 3-link screw couplings. They will be made to the same high standard with sprung bogies, buffers and couplings and will of course be mostly of die-cast construction. These are available to pre-order from us for £69 and will come supplied with un-fitted Slaters wheels. (list of available liveries shown below)
