NOW OPEN AGAIN AS NORMAL - with some catching up to do!  (updated Monday 24th)

We are open as normal following our enforced closure last week. Most of the IT is now working as it should (well almost!) and our mountains of paperwork are located in their new home. That doesn't mean that we can always find it straight away, as we all have to get used to the new locations for both stock and admin following our re-organisation of space. A large amount of overflow stock has been moved into a re-vamped warehouse so allowing more room to display the ever increasing product range in the new shop area. This is finished apart from the labelling of the carousel and one small area of peg board to complete the shop displays. 

The email situation is not as bad as feared and so we hope to be able to catch up with the outstanding messages by Wednesday afternoon. Most of the outstanding orders were packed today, but as most of them were in need of a courier, it was really annoying that UK Mails web site went down this morning. We were therefore only able to book on a few orders for this afternoon's collection. The rest should be sent tomorrow (Tuesday) now that their site seems to be working correctly, but unfortunately it was not doing so until after their driver called!

We hope to be able to make an announcement regarding the availability of Turnout Kits in a ready to use format. This has been an ongoing development that looks likely to be almost ready to make available. Watch out for a further announcement shortly.

On the development theme we were also hoping to make an announcement regarding ready to use flexi track being available with thick sleepers (Exactoscale Fast Track). However the jigs that we had made need a small amount of work and will have to go back to the manufacturers which will obviously delay the introduction of these products. Once they have been amended and returned to us, we need a period of time in order to build up stocks to prevent us immediately running short. As each length is individually hand-made it is a process that can't be rushed or speeded up. Watch out for an announcement.
