We’d like to take this opportunity to wish all our customers a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year. We have enjoyed seeing many of you at various shows this year and hope to see more of you next year. The market continues to be challenging and we apologise for the numerous delays that have affected the delivery of our projects and fervently hope that the situation begins to stabilise in 2023. Last orders for Christmas will be on Friday 16th December and the office will be closed from Friday 23rd December until Tuesday 3rd January 2023.
Last call for the Peckett kits!
If you, like us, have enjoyed Phil Parker’s construction series in Garden Rail magazine and feel inspired to assemble one of these lovely little locomotives you need to be prompt. We only have a handful of kits and ready to run examples left in stock and the maroon ones are now completely sold out.
G1MRA 75th Anniversary tank wagons
The Gauge 1 Model Railway Association still have a few of these celebratory wagons available for those who might be considering one for Christmas or as a Christmas present for someone – don’t miss out!
The Clearing House
The past year has been a sobering one, we have been asked to handle several estate sales on behalf of the families of deceased modellers. We have also been somewhat alarmed and disappointed to discover that many of these people have been offered woefully low prices by third parties who clearly think they can make a quick buck from grieving partners and families. We aim to sell collections at sensible, realistic prices based on their worth and take a modest commission for doing so. We don’t promise a quick return but we do aim to realise value for money for both vendors and purchasers. Most of these models have come from the collections of long-standing and trusted customers. If you have a collection looking for a new home, please consider talking to us.
Meanwhile, there are a lot of new additions to The Clearing House this month.
