News & Events

Updated Friday 27th November 2020 – The revised site has been up and running for a few days now and some really good positive feed back 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.

we are now coming to the end of week 3 of the second lockdown and it lokks like for most nothing is going to change, still no more trains days together or popping down the pub to let your hair down so please keep safe til we can meet again.

As far as I am aware the postal service in the UK are not affected, nearly all UK parcel are posted Royal mail special delivery, Posting Monday through to Thursday to arrive next day. I am unaware at the moment how The Continent is effected with France, Germany and other European countries having their lockdowns.

I have listed a few items today and will add a few more during the week. I have listed another super Boxed Hornby Princess this morning this version is in the later Blue box a nd in excellent plus overall condition. Finding quality stock is proving very difficult, if there are items that you are looking for please let me know, you can email a list or single items and I will let you know when/if they become available. New direct from the wholesaler a few weeks ago I listed 4 Hornby 0 Gauge limited edition 2710 modern issue Anniversary loco’s in ‘MR’ Maroon, ‘LNWR’ black, ‘GN’ and CR blue all at £475 each with the No.21 limited edition certificates. 2 of these have now sold so if you are looking for one have a look on the site.

It is 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 that my own layout has had a good deal of work and I will be looking to expand an area in order to be able to have more sidings. my own layout has had more work on it in the last few months and I have posted a couple pictures of the Bassett lowke/ leeds and other commercial manufacturers items on the layout, I hope you enjoy them.
