News & Events

Updated Friday 19th November 2021

I have added additional pictures of items already on the site as time permitts, however lower value items will only have one picture for the time being. Please email if you require additional pictures at any time as we do hold a number of extra ones on file.

I usually Post Monday through to Thursday special delivery these parcel will arrive next day before 1.00 pm (Back to normal). 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 did take a few extra days but again there appears to be a vast improvement on delivery times. Please be aware I only use Royal Mail upto 1st class and special Delivery, for parcel going overseas Royal Mail upto 2.0 kilos and Parcel Force for weights over 2 kilos. Parcel prices did increase in January which has had an effect on overseas costs.

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 listing items as they become available with this weeks addition include 5 Exley K5 SR side Corridor and full brake Coaches, some Hornby Pullman coaches, some more Australian Alan Middleton Coaches to go with the ones listed 2 weeks ag including an unusual Middleton 4-car EMU in Hornby Style, Replica SR L1 Loco & Tender in 3-rail electric (now sold), No.2 SR special Tank Clockwork Boxed black E492, Early GWR No.1 6 volt Tank loco. Plenty of really nice double Clockwork and electric track and many other items, so keep looking back. I still have a E220 LNER ‘Bramham Moor’ in gloss and a late pre-war Matt version which I have now listed, E502 export LMS loco & tender, LMS Corridor coach with the rare coupling tubes, 3-rail double electric straights boxed and unboxed, an unusual box of electric straights and other items so please keep looking back. Last week I added a Rare 2E Water Tank, in exceptional condition and boxed. Some mint boxed Middleton (Hornby replica) coaches in LMS/LNER and GWR (many now sold). 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, crossovers and many other items, still have a super E2E Engine shed and many other items so again keep looking and I hope you find something of interest.


Work on my layout has been very limited it seemd everytime I give one of the locos a good run it needs attention but the issues with items that 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.
