Friday 20th May 2022 –

Tomoroow Saturday 21st May I will be attending Sandown Park Toy fair with a good selection of my Vintage Hornby, Bassett lowke and other 0 Gauge Trains, Coaches, Wagons and Accessories together with a Good selection of Gauge 1 British outline Locos and rolling stock, hope to see you there……………………….

I am ususally Posting Monday to Thursday Special delivery, these parcels will arrive next day before 1.00 pm next day. there has been a slight reduction in some of the post office parcel prices but discounts for Parcel Force have now stopped making them more expensive. On parcels to Europe it appears in the main that we are back to normal (what ever normal is these days). Parcel to Holland, France and Germany are taking a few extra days but again there appears to be a vast improvement on delivery times. Please be aware I only use Royal Mail 1st class and Special Delivery, for parcel going overseas Royal Mail up to 2.0 kilos and Parcel Force for weights over 2 kilos. Parcel prices have increased as detailed above. I do not make a profit on packing I want to cover my costs, I tend to overpackage parcel but most importantly ensure they arrive with you on time and in the right condition.

If you do have any problems using the site please let me know I hope you will all find it easy to use, please email or phone me if you are having problems I am sure we can resolve it relatively quickly.

I am adding interesting items continually as and when items are aquired I will place them on the site so keep looking back to see what new items are available . I have added a pair of Excellent plus to near Mint LST1/20 box locos (LMS version now sold). I added a rare E220 Special loco & Tender LNER ‘Yorkshire’, a number of LNER Passenger and Corridor Coaches, Wagons, A stunning Boxed E2E Engine shed (still unsold – take a look this is a stunner). There are still a few of the rare EPM16 in LMS, SR now sold, early 6 volt Tank locos and a SR version is included, Meccano Girder Bridge and many other items as well as continuing to list other Locomotives, Rolling stock and Accessories so I will continue to place these on the site as they become available and time permitts. If there is any thing you are looking for let me know I might be able to help. The large number of post war wagons have been selling very quickly so if your looking for any take a look at what is listed if you cannot see and there is something specific please email and I can let you know if it is on stock, Maldon Rail 3-rail second hand track just have the last few 9 inch straights. There are 3 types of 3-rail track including double straights but I will need time to photograph them before placing them on the site, electric Crossovers, single and Curved track and many other items, again keep looking and I hope you find something of interest.


Although a busy time buying collection and listed, selling and packing parcels time has been found to do some work on the layout. i lot of workstill to do but I am enjoying running a number of the vintage trains including Hornby Bassett Lowke, Leeds, Milbro etc. A few of the vintage Loco mech’s are still causing problems, they are nearly 90 years old, but still very frustrating, I do like to make sure they all run and preform well on the layout. I will try to post some additional pictures so you can see the progress, I hope you enjoy them.
