News & Events

Updated Sunday 28th June 2020 - All parcels are being shipped and recieved on time in the UK, Special delivery is working fine as is 1st class mail. The website is open for orders so feel free to have a look and place orders as you like and I will do my best to send all parcels within 24/48 hours. For Europe - Appears to back to pre-March and working fine with parcels to Germany, France, Holland and Europe all recieved on time. Further afield Australia, New Zealand, USA etc I am sending parcels so if you are wanting to place orders please do, I will post them off within 24/48 hours of orders paid so far there has been a couple of days delay but not much out of normal delievery times. It has been important that we all stay safe like most people I am keeping safe and hopefully we can all start playing trains together again soon. I have to say my own layout has had more work on it than in the past 12 months so starting to look really good.

PLEASE NOTE ALL 'Up and Coming' - All events have been CANCELLED due to the current virus situation. I have not heard of any re-opening as yet but that might change as we move forward from this UK lockdown. Please keep an eye on my 'News and Events' and I will try to post details as and when I know of any changes. When you have placed an order please make sure your basket shows the item/s and you WILL receive confirmation of the order if this does not happen please check your spam box to make sure the email confirmation and/or your basket. Do not pay the order until I have added the postage/shipping cost which will depend on the packed weight of the item/s and the destination. You can always ring me if you are in any doubts about your order or other matters. I accept payment on the site by card or bank transfer, If you prefer to do it over the phone direct 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.

Don't forget to let me know if you are looking for anything in particular I will always keep a look out and let you know if they are in stock. Additional pictures are available for all items on the site if you are unsure about an item/s, you can also contact me to discuss an item/s on the phone and I can also describe them to you.

I have been actively seeking new items but this has been very difficult to find quality items to place on the site, many items added in the last 3 weeks have sold very quickly and are now being enjoyed by there new owners.I will add what I can when available, serviced and ready for the site
