August 19th, 2014 - We have just added a good number of Hornby-Dublo and Tri-ang items for sale. Some hard to find items these days and realistic pricing! Just click on the Hornby Dublo/Triang tab, or click here. Also, look out for some Dinky Toys coming soon!
August 13th, 2014 - A word if we may about the new prices for our Bachmann Branchline OO scale products. This range has seen substantial price increases effective July 2014. Dennis Lovett, Bachmann Europe's Public Relations Manager, answered criticism of the price increases in a reply to Model Railway Express Mag. You can read his comment here while it is still available. While Dennis talks about Chinese wages going up 20% over the five years to 2019, some of the Bachmann products have increased by up to 40% immediately. Check our prices against Bachmann's own website, http://www.bachmann.co.uk/index.php and you will see that our prices remain in line and are usually a little lower. See also our 10% discount offer on Bachmann locos and coaches when you pre-order any item.

June 25th, 2014 - Further to the news item below, it has taken us a little longer than originally we anticipated, but we now have the first of our Airfix plastic kit offerings, up on the site. Airfix has some great starter sets, gift sets and kits in the 2014 line-up so be sure to check them out. More will be added as we have time.
April 4th, 2014 - Along with model railways, one of the great pastimes of the 1960/70's was building plastic kits and one of the best known British kit producers was Airfix. We want to let you know that we now carry the full range of AIrfix model kits and we will have an Airfix page up on the site before long. Until the list is up just check with us by phone or email for availability and price on any of the current range from Airfix.
February 18th, 2014 - Please note that we do carry a good selection of diecast models of British motor cars, vans, lorries, buses and other service vehicles from the 1930's to present day, in OO scale (1:76) and to a lesser extent N scale (1:148) and O scale (1:43). It is our intention to extend the range of diecast we carry so keep checking back for more listings and information.
