(Please note that due to a clash of this new date for the Victoria show, with other activities, we will not be able to attend this show in 2015. We will be back in 2016. We hope to see many of our Victoria area customers at the Nanaimo show in April).
TRAINS 2015: Probably November but dates, times and location to be confirmed. More information here: http://www.bctrains.org
Thank you for stopping by!
February 19th, 2015 - Due to further complications with the manifest for our goods, the shipment only cleared customs today and will be delivered to us tomorrow, Feb 20th.
February 13th, 2015 - We have an airfreight shipment en route to us with latest models from Hornby, Ace Trains, Dapol and Metcalfe. Due to some port strikes in the US and impending rail strikes in Canada with both CP and CN, aircargo space to North America from the UK, is difficult to obtain and as a result our shipment, which we expected a week ago, will not be with us until Feb 17 or 18. If you are waiting for models expected here with this shipment, please be advised that we will contact you as soon as we have the shipment here, unpacked and inventoried. We apologize for this delay which is out of our control.
