About Us

We sell all aspects of second hand model railway but predominantly N, OO & O gauge with special interest in Finescale O Gauge locomotives. Our office is based outside of Ripon, North Yorkshire, where we spend most of our days testing, repairing and shipping stock to customers. We have been running the business for 10+ years, entirely online.
