We shall be attending the Workington Model Railway Show at the Energus Conference Centre at Lillyhall Estate on November 17th and 18th. If you would like anything brought along to the show, please let us know in advance.
The shop will be closed on Saturday 17th, and after 3.30 p.m. on Friday 16th November.
C&M Models have recently commissioned Dapol to produce 2 private owner wagons for us, which we hope to have available in December. There is an outside chance they may arrive for Workington show in mid-November.
The first follows on for our successful Carr & Co. biscuit van, and depicts another company from this group, the flour mills at Silloth. Both pristine and weathered versions are being produced. Price for these wagons has yet to be finalised
The second wagon is a 7-plank open wagon from the Lake District based Keswick Co-operative Society Limited. This wagon will be released at the Workington show in mid-November, and the price is £14.60
We now have available from stock a number of Dapol ‘O’ gauge wagons. There are several variants of the the ‘HAA’ merry-go-round coal hopper, with different coloured cradles. A number of different BR 12 ton vans and a good variety of the 16 ton mineral wagons. Our prices are also competitive with Tower Models.
Now in stock are the Revolution Trains ‘IZA’ Cargowaggon Twin sets, in N gauge. Various versions are available, in single and/or triple packs. These wagons are proving to be popular, so stock are unlikely to last for long.
Announced in September 2018 were new ‘N’ gauge models of the Class 128 parcels van d.m.u., the ‘VEA’ Vanwide vans, the ‘IPA’ single-deck car carrying wagons, plus new 20 foot tank-tainers from ‘C’ Rail.
Also to be made available are further runs of the Pendolinos in previously unreleased liveries, as well as new liveries of the ‘N’ gauge TEA tankers.
We await final details of the exact models being done, but we will be stocking these. Remember, if you are unable to afford pre-paying under the crowdfunding operated by Revolution Trains, our terms are payment on despatch, allowing you to spread your payments.
C&M Models ‘OO’ Limited Edition wagon – still available
We still have stocks of this 7-plank open wagon left.
Mealsgate is a village on the A595 road from Carlisle to Cockermouth, and was on a branch line from Aspatria.
Price of the wagon is £13.20, plus postage, if applicable
Jouef TGVs – due late 2018
Hornby International have announced the release of these iconic French high speed trains in two of the most popular versions – the Duplex double-deck trains in the Euro livery often seen running into Germany, and the Thalys version which runs to Brussels, Amsterdam, Cologne and Dortmund.
By choosing the correct sets and additional coaches, the full 10-car sets are easily assembled, and we will be happy to advise you on what you need for this, and process your order for you.
LS Models 10052: SNCF BB22400TTU Electrics Twin Pack
These locomotives were used on the first freights that passed through the Channel Tunnel after it opened, working as far as Dollands Moor, before the Class 92s were available. LS Models produce excellent, detailed models and these would be something very different for your British-based layout. We also have a set available fitted with DCC Sound
