We are concentrating our range on
locomotive/tender kits (the original LMS kits and the ex-Martin Finney
kits), EasiChas and finescale wagon and coach underframes, wagon bodies
and couplings. We are no longer selling etched
windows, track details, coupling/connecting rods and axle/buffer gauges.
accessories will not be replaced once they have been exhausted and
now only be available at shows and not via mail order. Also, we are
closing our PO Box with immediate effect and will therefore only be able
to accept orders via email.
for 2024 include the re-launch of the Austerity/J94 0-6-0ST kit which
has been unavailable for many years. It will produce all of the main
variants including the 50550, Lambton colliery, Giesl ejector and the
early and later LNER J94s.
on will be the EasiChas for the Bachmann LMS Ivatt 2MT 2-6-0, a full kit
for the Great Eastern J17 0-6-0, a finescale chassis for the Bachmann
GCR O4 ROD 2-8-0 and last, but not least, the LMS Coronation Pacific.

GWR 3150 2-6-2T. This
is a completely new kit to the highest possible standards. It represents the engines as rebuilt from 1919 onwards, with larger
(deeper) bunkers, longer smokeboxes and superheated boilers.
This kit produces
a complete finescale chassis in either EM or P4 for the Dapol
2-6-0 model first released in late 2020. It only requires a locomotive
body and a tender (which are available as spares) and not a complete Dapol locomotive.
us by Andy Vincent of Meon Valley Models, these are the best 4mm scale
3D-printed wagons that we have ever seen. They even have
"readable" lettering on the axlebox covers!
The bodies have full interior detail on sides and floor and are designed to fit onto our
axleboxes and buffers are included.
types are now available for Gloucester Railway Carriage & Wagon opens, in
either 15ft, 16ft or 16ft 6in body lengths with side or end doors, inside strapping and
with either 4, 5, 6 or 7 planks. The first for Charles Roberts' wagons
is now available.
RCH 1923 Morton braked 9ft
wooden solebar sub-frame. It is designed
to fit under Slaters, Cambrian and Parkside wagons and includes
single-sided brakes activated from both sides. Newly released
are for the RCH 1932 10ft
Morton braked steel or wooden underframe wagons.
sprung sub-frames for the RCH
1907, RCH 1923 and Gloucester 9ft wheelbase Private Owner wagons
are also available. All
incorporate springing as standard.
We have sourced some very fine,
which can be paired with our coupling hook etches to produce superb 3-link couplings (the chain is
available in two types - scale and fine, and with either copper or iron links).
Martin Finney 4mm scale kits
have available most of the former Martin Finney range of 4mm kits
- six LSWR/SR locomotives
and three tenders, fifteen GWR
locomotives and three tenders, four
LNER locomotives and four
tenders and two
LSWR van kits.
Please email us if you wish to buy any of these because we do not keep
complete kits for all of these in stock and may have to pack a kit to order.
