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.
Signals are vitally important to the safe running of any railway. Policemen acted as the very first signalmen and used hand-signals to control locomotive movements. As time progressed and accidents happened, the need for better signalling systems became all too clear. Wires and interlocking control systems soon became the norm as safety became paramount in the operation of a safe railway. The telegraph bell code system completed the system as boxes were able to communicate with each other prior to locomotives being allowed to enter a new section of track. In todays digital age, semaphore signals are rare but can still be found in use in places, and most certainly on the preserved railways up and down the country. Here, we have a mixture of the old and new so that you can set up your railway exactly as you want it to be.
