Newsletter September 2006


Saturday September 16th 2006 - RoR openday.

Once again we are throwing open our garden railway to one and all.

If you are thinking of purchasing any of our locos use this day as an opportunity to come along and have a test drive.

After our May openday this one should be a bit quieter so more time for some serious running.

Polly Rally, Sheffield - 9th September

If you are around the Sheffield area well worth seeing Pollys in action. Sorry I won't be there as I am booked in for a weekend in Blackpool.



After taking on Ride on Railways as a more full time job (actually 3 days a week but soon to be 5) we have hit a major stumbling block. Back in May I ordered 40 motors which I am still waiting for. Fasco are rated as one of the top quality motor manufacturers and having sold over 250 without one failure I don't think I should look at an alternative source just yet.

Sorry to all those who are waiting for engines but this problem has really brought us major problems. As of 5th September there is a possibility of RoR being allocated 20 motors of a small batch being air freighted over. Provisionally this should be in 10 days time.

4 Wheel Riding Trucks

We have just sold the last of the first batch of our new 4 wheel coal wagon riding truck. If you are in a hurry for one PNP Railways has a few on the shelf ready for immediate dispatch + they have the advantage of credit card facilities. I am working of the next batch of 10 but it will take at least a month before any are ready for dispatch.

Price for the finished braked truck complete with riding cushion and running board is 350.

Garden Rail

Sorry for the late notice but if you can get to see a copy of August 06 I had a 4 page article published about our garden railway. I am hoping follow it up with a couple of other articles aimed at trying to temp a few large scale modellers to try an even larger scale.
