"And now for something completly different"

I was recently asked to make a doggie gate for my friends Simon & Max at Simon's Train's in Holsworthy this is to keep thier four legged friend Daisy dog out of mischief in the shop.

Not my usual layout building but still railway related



Whilst at the Exeter show I've had one or two people interested in my small "fish tank" baseboards so I wanted to make up a couple of these as "stock" items, ready to sell on to customers who want them. But knowing these take a minimum of two days to build from scratch I have had some laser cut. I will be selling these in kit form.  Of course if ordered before a show I am attending I can bring a kit with me for collection. (see my exhibitions page for shows I am attending)

I will be selling these through my website and at shows I am attending.

Price for these baseboards is £190 a kit, take a look at my Products page for more details







One of my interesting tasks I've had recently was this Hornby APT (Advanced Passenger Train) which has come in for remotoring not too difficult but it does require some patience and some fiddling about to get the new motor boge to fit now I have to get hold of another motor bogie to finish the job.


Recently been working on a small project to help those who find wiring switches for point motors and isolating sections a little difficult.

These control boxes are priced at £28 each (including postage) they have basic wiring instructions included, even so they are very easy to install.

The isolating control box does have a couple of uses, clearly track isolating is one, another is for lighting circuits but I'm sure you'll find lots of other uses. 

WARNING: These products are intended for use with a suitable Model Railway controller with an output of 12-24V. Under no circumstances should it be connected directly to Mains Current - for indoor use only, if in doubt always consult a qualified electrician.
