Covid-19 Update

With Regret we have decided to CLOSE DOWN our sales department with Immediate Effect. All orders placed up to this point will be despatched.

At this point we can’t say when we will be re-opening.

Covid-19 is spreading faster each day and a vaccine is a long way off yet. So the longer we all lay low, the safer we will be.

Look after yourselves.

Scale Information

N SCALE

For ease of design we actually work to the ratio of 2mm to 1 Foot which is 1:152. This is a scale that is becoming more popular every year and is also generally considered compatible with the 1:144 scale for miniature wargaming (12mm height of a person).

00/H0 SCALE

For ease of design we actually work to the ratio of 4mm to 1 Foot which is 1:76. We design our models with the different OO track styles in mind, and our railway buildings are designed to accommodate the variants. The scenery buildings are designed to look right on a layout and while close to OO scale they may vary slightly. For example if we designed a church or a mill true to scale it would look huge on a layout and would take up far too much space.
