We are currently closed due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic but you can still order your model railway supplies on this website. We have good stocks and anything that is ordered which is out of stock will be refunded and the balance of the order despatched. All of our staff have been laid off in accordanace with Government Guidelines and I am personally attending to despatching orders as part of my daily exercise allowance.
Any hobby is a valuable asset in times of personal isolation and we hope that your model railway provides you with great pleasure and comfort during this unprecedented time.
Please stay safe and follow all medical advice and together we will come through this crisis.
Lionel Fastrack is the modern 3-rail system developed by Lionel to replace the older tinplate versions. It is fixed set track with no leeway in track design but is robust and reliable.
Although we are listed as a dealer on the Lionel website, we are in fact a Lionel repair agent and not a dealer and we do not stock Lionel products as such. The only products we do stock is the Fastrack and a odd few accessories.
Lionel Train Sets
Along with all other Lionel train sets, the hugely popular Polar Express Train Set is not CE marked and, therefore, is not allowed to be sold in the UK. There is also a further complication in that all Lionel Train Sets are supplied with US power transformers which operate on a different electricity supply to the UK. The cost of changing the power supply to one which meets the necessary requirements is not cost effective enough to make it worthwhile us importing them. However, by using a converter, some people do have some success when importing the sets direct from the USA themselves, but it is not a guarantee to success and could lead to disappointment and a hefty repair bill. The larger scale battery powered sets are simply too big for us to stock in our shop.
