NEWS

NEWS UPDATE - Wednesday 7th December

7mm - Rail & Flexi Track - available again from next week

We have been promised a delivery of our long awaited order next Tuesday (13th December). This is obviously too late for us to be able to bring rail or make flexi track in time for the Reading O Gauge Show this Saturday. We will not be in a position to take orders at the show but instead ask that customers now go ahead and place their orders online. As of today we have re-listed these products on the website, so they can now be ordered as normal.

We ask for your patience as there is already a backlog of orders to prepare. We will get the track made as quickly as possible, but it might take around a week from the delivery date to deal with both the outstanding and newly placed orders.

We apologise for the delay in getting this rail back into stock.

Exhibitions

We have carried out a review of the exhibitions that we are able to attend during 2017, now that Pete is not able to attend shows for heath reasons. The Exhibition Diary page has been updated.

NEWS UPDATE - Saturday 5th November

7mm - Rail & Flexi Track

We are currently out of stock of both of these items. This is as a result of unprecedented demand over the last couple of months. We have sold track and rail at more than double the rate we achieved during the same period last year. The situation has not been helped by a slight delay at the suppliers.

We are the only rail manufacturer in the UK that uses a specially formulated 'HiNi' nickel silver rail which contains a higher percentage of nickel than other makers, resulting in our rail looking more like steel (and not having the yellow tinge of normal N/S rail).

The disadvantage is that we can't just go out and buy N/S rail from any supplier. It has to be specially made for us and this causes issues every now and then, depending upon the capacity of the supplier and the workload of the manufacturer that draws the round wire into the form of bullhead rail.

We have been caught out on this occasion and apologise for any inconvenience caused. We can't give an exact date for when we will have our new stock, but it is likely to be another few weeks.

EXISTING PRODUCTS - BACK IN STOCK

Exactoscale Check Chairs - 0.8mm

We now have these popular check chairs back in stock. There is a slight issue with a very small amount of 'flash' appearing on one corner of the chair. It is easy to remove. We have taken the decision to make these chairs availalbe (having not had any for quite some time), and to look into why this minor issue has suddenly raised its ugly head, so that action can be taken prior to ordering the naxt batch.

Placing an Order

We ask that orders be placed through the website as card payment details are then securely held only by the Merchant Services provider. We don't even get to see them!

Phone orders require that we record the details on paper files. Whilst we take extreme care with personal card details there is a slighty increased possibility that they might not remain completely secure. In more than four years of trading we have never had a customers card details comprimised by purchasing through our secure web site.
