News & Events

Updated Wednesday 24th February 2021 – so at last some signs of a release from these lock downs by the middle of the year so roll on so we can start enjoying our trains together with some great running days ahead.

Items are very hard to find, I have added new items and a few rare items and they have sold very quickly so I keep looking for more items to add onto the site. Please keep coming back as I add more items in the coming days.

As previously mentioned The Royal mail increased prices from 1st of January 2021 the letter and small parcel prices are showing on the Royal mail website. All my parcels are posted Royal mail or Parcel Force depending on weight and size, those on special delivery, Posting Monday through to Thursday will arrive next day by 4.00 pm (Original pre covid 1.00 pm) other wise that service delivery timing is unchanged. Parcels to Europe in the main are back on track but there appears to be VAT added by Couriers in various EU counties certainly that is the case of items coming into the UK from the EU so please bear that in mind when placing orders.

The revised site has been up and running and general feed back has been excellent so thank you to all who have let me know how you have got on. If you do have any problems 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.

As stated above I will list items as they become available so please keep looking back. All the 4 modern limited edition locos have now been sold and it is unlikely I will get any more. I have added a couple of rare black electric No.1 Special which sold very quickly, super No.3C Clockwork LNER Flying Scotsman Pullman set, 6 volt Metro, E220 Compound, Clockwork No/.2 special ‘Bramham moor’ and another GW early 2711 as well as some private owner vans and other items so again keep looking and I hope you find something of interest.

I like many of you have been working on there layouts, mine is coming along very well but has slowed in the last couple of months so will try to get back on to of it. I have posted a couple pictures of the Bassett lowke/ Leeds and other commercial manufacturers items on the layout, I hope you enjoy them.

I accept payment on the site by card or bank transfer If you prefer to do it over the phone directly with me or send a cheque that is fine too.

I realise that we all have a budget to work to so you can secure any item with a deposit on an agreed time frame so give me a call to discuss this option if it is of interest.

A lot of my recent items have quickly found new homes so if you are looking for something particular you can alway ask and I will let you know if/when they are in stock.
