Update March 23 2019

The SECR D class project is now in the final stages of assembly and the etches have arrived for the GWR Castle tender etches for the complete production.

The next phase for the Castle project is making the production sample locomotive. This will be checked by Bob Meanley of Tysley and ourselves for any final corrections. Without doubt these will be the finest Castle models every made, in both detail and quality of build.

GNR/LBSCR ATLANTICS February 05 2019

We would like to know if there is any interest in us doing the GNR/LBSCR Atlantics as a project? 

Primarily this would be the large boiler GNR Altantics, from GNR to BR and the LBSCR H1 and H2 from LBSCR to BR.

These would be to our design from scratch. To see the standard we build to look at the SECR D class.
