    • Patrick and I have just returned from the Glasgow show. We were delighted to do a special commission with the National Railway Museum with their Locomotion Models arm and in conjunction with Rails Limited. They’ve opted to do a special three pack edition of the first three of the HOP24/HUO wagons of the variant we are producing. These were built in Shildon, where the NRM now has a museum. They will come in a specially decorated box which Patrick has done an amazing design job on and is available for £69.95 on the Locomotion and Rails websites.  We met with the NRM and Rails on Tuesday in York and they were highly impressed with our HUO hopper as well as the IRM output that they were keen to work with us. We’re genuinely humbled as they insist on ‘Museum Quality’ models as seen by the other models they have commissioned over the years. If you are at Model Rail Scotland today you can see the samples of the hopper in the cabinet of Rails, Locomotion and there is also one on the Scalefour Society stand which has been converted to P4 finescale standards. All it took to convert the wagon was a simple drop in fit of the wheel sets. 😊 We will have a sample of the HOP24/HUO with us at the IRM launch on the 3rd in anyone wants to have a look!  
    • Thanks everyone who voted for us! We’re delighted with how well we performed in our first year in the poll, especially when we are a niche manufacturer in the market! 
    • Couldn't agree more. Captures the atmosphere of CIE in the 60s and 70s perfectly. The brown Palvan (with the beet pulp) - is that scratchbuilt or a kit, Patrick?
    • Absolutely love this layout, it just goes to show that sometimes keeping things simple can be very very effective.Some  modellers over think and over complicate their layouts nowadays resulting in too much trackwork cramped into too little space.For me this layout not only looks great but oozes atmosphere to go with it.
