19th August

Sorry for the short notice but we are having an open afternoon on Saturday 19th August from around 1pm. All are welcome.

Drop me a line for the address if you haven't been before.

NEW PRODUCTS - Due September

As mentioned in previous updates we are re vamping our 4 wheel braked driving truck. Improvements include

  • Modified brake gear

  • Lower running boards for improved stability

  • Reduced height buffer beam

  • New coal wagon body and cushion.


This is our first product not specifically aimed at the garden railway. It will be supplied with full side skirts as many clubs do not allow stirrups on safety grounds. The skirts are fixed via brackets which allow for adjustment in height and width so it should work on most raised tracks.

Picture below is my lad Clark with the truck on the Canvey Island Club track.


As part of the ongoing review of products we are improving the colour signals. Using the same lenses we will be offering ground and crossing lights + metal post, base and ladder.



As usual I never seem to have enough time to get through the orders. This is not helped with the a shortage of Fasco motors in the country. I am still waiting for an order placed in June.

We are trying to get properly organised so if you have placed an order please chase us for an order number. The number will be reference to a workshop sheet and eventual invioce. The days of one or two orders a week have long gone so I now need to be a bit more organised.

We will possibly have another open day in September but the weekends already seem to be filling up. Provisionally looking at the afternoon of Saturday 16th September.
