UPDATE - Saturday 17th June


A message from the previous owner:  

Phil, the new owner of the C&L side of the business will be taking over this web site with effect from next week, and will shortly be making an announcement on this page concerning a re-opening date.

As this is my last entry, may I take this opportunity to thank all C&L customers who have supported my business over the last 6 years. There have been a number of challenges from floods to break-ins as well as broken tooling to name just a few. However, I have still enjoyed the experience and am just disappointed that the growth in the business meant extra work which my health could not cope with. Whilst I move on to other things, I wish all C&L customers well with your various modelling projects and hope that you will continue to support the business via the new owner.

Things will be quite different from now on, for example, in terms of the speed of service that will be provided. Obviously it will take some time for customers to become familiar with the 'cottage industry' style of working that Phil will be using. Circumstances dictate that he will not have the back-up of the 5 or 6 staff that I had, and so the method of working had to change. There is also likely to be a difficult period immediately after re-opening whilst Phil becomes familiar with all the new systems. In particular the need to use different shipping methods, will require a bit of time to 'bed in'. 

Finally, I would like to place on record my thanks to the various staff who have helped and supported me so much over the years, as without them there would be no C&L!

My best wishes and kind regards to you all.

Pete Llewellyn

UPDATE - Thursday 18th May


Trading Name - The new owner will trade as 'C&L Finescale Track Building Systems'.

Re-Opening - Due primarily to the large amount of stock, it will be a number of weeks before trading commences. The date will be advised as soon as it is known.

Stock - Most has now been moved to the new base in Surrey.

UPDATE - Thursday 26th April

Following the sale of the C&L business, we are unable to accept any orders either by the website, phone or email. The stock is being packed and transported to Surrey over the next month. The new owner Phil Reid hopes to resume business (on this website) in early June.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We would like to thanks our customers for their support of our business over the last 6 years.

There will be no one to look at emails from midday on Friday 28th April until further notice, as the current C&L staff are unfortunately being made redundant, and Pete is unavailable for the first two weeks of May. Phil Reid will then take over answering emails from a date to be announced.
