Following on from the success of our Carr & Co. biscuit manufacturers van, we have commissioned a further van from the same group of companies. This time it is the Carr & Co. flour mills at Silloth. This time, we have had made a pristine version, as well as a weathered version, the weathering being done in white to reflect the colour of flour powder.

  Both wagons are now available from stock. Price is £13.75 for the unweathered van, £14.75 for the weathered version. Orders can be placed online

(click on this text to go to the relevant section of our online shop), or over the phone, or in the shop.

Our other exclusive edition is the “Keswick Co-operative Society Limited” 7-plank open wagon. With acknowledgement to the Cumbria Railways Association for providing the photograph of the prototype, this wagon is very much associated with the heart of the Lake District.


Price is £14.60, plus postage if applicable, Orders can be placed online

Following on from the success of the Hornby Class 87 in ‘OO’, Heljan have announced a re-tooled Class 86. Initially, they are producing versions from the early part of their lives, as the AL6s and Class 86/0 (without mulitple working boxes). We are happy to accept advance orders for these models which are expected to be released towards the end of 2019.


Advance orders are also welcomed on other Heljan products, such as the newly announced ‘O’ gauge Class 17 “Clayton”


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.

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
