Long established Model Railway Shop in Halesowen, West Midlands.
All the above would not be possible without the enormous support of the volunteers who help to keep the shop running!
Tennents Trains Picture Gallery
Here we will post images of interest from inside and outside the shop, of model railway features or of the real railway. These images will include Facebook embedded posts for those who are not on Facebook so that you don't miss out on the items of interest that get posted on there, not only by Tennents Trains but also by others.
This is the Facebook post that was posted by my 'day job' employer when presenting me with my 25-Year Long Service Award in April 2018. It is a job I love and that has enabled me to indulge in my love of Model Railways by buying Tennents Trains back in 2015.
This is a scene from our In-Shop window scrapyard display showing many locomotives waiting to be cut up in the last days of steam.
The display has been built by one of our talented volunteers and is now a permanent resident display so please pop by and have a look at the full display when you are passing. We used many bits and pieces lying around the shop and work benches as well as a few Dapol kit locomotives partly built. It demonstrates what can be done with anything left over and seemingly only fit for the bin.
Bits and pieces piled up against the wall of the yard being kept apart in case the preservationists come knocking on the door looking for a spare part. The image gives rise to ideas for those little areas of the engine shed where a few scattered pieces of 'junk' make the area look really authentic. We don't throw anything away as it may come in useful at some stage in the future.
Here is an image we posted on Facebook from an earlier shop layout which has subsequently been sold. The close-up shot of the Pannier shows it waiting just outside the station limits for the clear signal from the signalman before proceeding to pickup a Box Parcel Van which had been filled and was ready for departure. The background is made up of Metcalfe Low relief card kits and give an effective depth to the layout which was actually very narrow.
