WHAT WE OFFER
With 40 years of experience in the art of model making, we are proud to offer our range of static, spirit and coal fired kits suitable for all those interested in the Gauge 1 market.
Alongside this we offer a range of castings, etchings, fittings and frames for the more experienced model makers to build locos to their own requirements.
We have updated our range of castings sold seperately, and have now added a small selection of fixtures and fittings, including burners, clack valves, axlepumps, pressure gauges and all the screws we use!
