Introductory Notes and Price List

LOCOMOTIVE KITS 

Kits are etched nickel silver and brass with castings in brass, copper, nickel silver and whitemetal and are complete with full fittings. 

They are designed with a compensated chassis (which can be built rigid) and feature many alternative components to allow authentic 
models to be built  of most members of each class over a wide period of time.

Locomotive kits do not include tender, motor, wheels and pick-ups.

The GWR tenders have a unique compensated chassis design with the axle bearings in their prototypical position in the outside frames. 
Tender kits do not include wheels.

 
INSIDE MOTION KITS.
Complete with cast brass cranks and brass eccentrics. 
For those looking for a fresh challenge these kits certainly do add that 'something extra' to the inside cylinder models.  
It is not possible to squeeze the inside motion between the frames of an OO model.


WHEELS. Ultrascale wheels are by far, the best quality wheels available.  
GWR tender wheels include special axles for the outside bearing design in the GWR tender kits.

 
MOTORS.
All the kits, except the newest (L11 & Duke), were designed around the Portescap motor/gearbox and where necessary new 
gearbox sides  are provided in the kit so that the gearbox can be reconfigured to fit the model in such a way that it is not visible.

The Portescap motor/gearboxes are, however, no longer available.

As an alternative I am now recommending the High Level range of gearboxes and Mashima motors.  

 
AVAILABILITY.
I try to keep the full range of kits available from stock but there are times when some products are not immediately available. 

Please check availability with me before ordering.

Some items are unlikely to be available for the foreseeable future and these are marked ‘U’ as unavailable.

POSTAGE and PACKING (UK)     Locomotive kits -  5.00      Wagons kits - 2.50  Small items -  1.50.   Overseas postage at cost
