Welcome to our November news update. The heading image is a small tribute to the men of the Light Railways Operating Division who lost their lives in World War 1. As we approach the centenary of the end of this bloody conflict it is worth remembering the sacrifices made by so many to bring it to an end. We are lucky to have preserved examples of both WD Baldwins and Alcos in the UK and Europe and the recent recommissioning of No. 1215 has filled a further gap, adding a WD Hunslet 4-6-0T to the roll call. We have just a couple of 32mm gauge examples left to purchase, and remember, every sale contributes to the restoration cost of No. 1215!
Last call for U.S. stock for Christmas!
If you fancy something American in your stocking this year we are planning one last shipment from California before the festive season. There are 1:32 freight cars to go with the new Aster-Accucraft Light Mikados, 1:20.3 locomotives and rolling stock as well as the last few Aster-Accucraft 9Fs – don’t miss out! You can check availability through the eStore.
