News - Wednesday 23rd April
Web Orders, Emails & Forthcoming Shows

The York Show was a great success. Even though we only had a tiny stand, we managed to sell plenty of products, so thank you to everyone who came to visit. We were able to use our van as a sort of back up store which enabled us to take more stock than we had originally anticipated, but the issue now is that we sold many more products, and so we are now short of stock in quite a few areas.

A huge order has gone off to Peco to replenish their products but they will not arrive until around Wednesday next week. Other C&L and Carr's products have been ordered today and hopefully we will be able to make some of our products over the next few days. However, there is likely to be shortages of some items for a number of weeks, where we have to get things made by others.

Emails - The email count is now down to just over 60 messages waiting to be answered. Please bear with us as we try to get these dealt with, as well as completing the Show and normal weekend orders. It is worth noting that whilst attending Shows we do not have access to email messages (nor any time to answer them even if we did!). Messages sent towards the end of a week leading into a show are therefore likely to remain unseen until the following Tuesday.

Epsom Show - The shortages may impact on what Phil has available at this weekend's Show, so it may be necessary to place an order with him if he is unable to supply your needs. The closing date for pre-orders has already passed, as we have to ship them to him via a courier during the week leading up to any shows that he attends with our small stand, in time for him to sort them and pack them to take with him on the Friday. 

Thornbury Show - We set up on Thursday 1st May and although we are able to visit our warehouse each evening on our way home during this show, it would be much easier if we could be given details of pre-orders by midday on Wednesday 30th April.

   

C&L 7mm Track under construction on the SR7 Group Layout  

Who are we and what do we sell?

C&L Finescale aims to encourage modellers who are unhappy with how the trackwork on their layout looks, to rise to the challenge of building at least some of their own track or pointwork. Our simple method is to glue chairs to sleepers and timbers, rather than soldering rails to copper clad strips, to achieve prototypical looking trackwork that includes chairs and other detail. We want your track to compliment your layout and not to look out of place with highly detailed kit and ready to run locos and rolling stock. We are now able to supply both C&L and Exactoscale track components, along with the latest additions to our range in the form of wheels, gear boxes and wagon chassis and brake gear.

The Carr's range of products covers items for the preparations prior to soldering, solders & fluxes as well as post soldering treatments. The range also includes metal black treatments, scenic items, ballast, baseboard fittings and underlay which compliment the C&L range, and are joined by products from other manufacturers such as Antex (soldering irons, bits & accessories) and Roger Smith's modelling products.

We are also UK distributors for Tortoise 'slow action' Point Motors and accessories, and we still offer the 'Timber Tracks' range of laser cut plywood 'Track Bases', although we are no longer able to obtain further supplies.

We aim to give advice to assist new or inexperienced modellers. Visit the new Knowledge Centre on the main Menu, and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) pages. These pages will be added to and improved over the coming weeks. Further information is given at the start of many of the pages displaying the lists of our products, and these will be expanded with more information and tips as time allows.

We take our stand to around thirty Model Railway Exhibitions throughout the year (see Exhibition Diary), and sell many of our products through other Traders and Model Shops, both in the UK and abroad.

Go to our Contacts Page for details of our address, phone and email address.

Shop Opening Hours 

Callers are welcome between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday.

Please note: We close at Midday on Friday's that precede a Model Railway Exhibition, to allow us to travel and set up.

Please check the Exhibition Diary for details. 

Also, please phone first to ensure that Pete will be available at the unit if you need to discuss technical issues or ask for advice on our product range.
