New Courier delivery service added
We have finally got round to adding a courier delivery service. We now
offer one of the widest range of delivery services, giving you the largest
choice of delivery options from any of the main model railway online stores. For
more details see our postage rates page.
Updated Royal Mail prices.
We have updated all the Royal Mail module prices, and they do seem to be
fair to everyone. If you have any complaints over the pricing of the delivery
please contact us, but we are restricted to what we are charged.
Our delivery costs are not just the cost of the stamps. They do also include
a small charge for packaging and labels.
Range of baseboard fitting expanded.
We have expanded our range of baseboard fittings. We now included more
brackets to make baseboard assembly easier. All items are sold singularly, so
only buy what you need. We also sell a new type of baseboard adjustable foot.
This includes a bracket and foot as a unit. Again sold individually so you only
buy what you need.
BA Nuts, screws and washers.
We have finally got round to adding our first batch of brass BA screws,
nuts and washers. All are available in packets of 10, and are competitively
priced. We will soon be adding steel screws, nuts and washers in similar sizes.
New wire kept in stock.
We have now decided to keep 10/0.1mm multi core electrical wire in stock.
This cable is rated at 0.5 amps and is suitable for additional DCC coder wires
and things like motor pickup wiring. We are selling this in short 2m lengths as
we cannot see that people would want long lengths. This item is now available in a range of 11 colours.
New range of tools added.
We have now increased our range of tools for craft and hobby
enthusiasts. We are now distributors of the Toolzone range of tools. All tools are
good quality, and are all set at an affordable price.
Initial stocks will be low, and depending on sales, stock quantities will be
increased. The range will also be expanded.
We have now become dealers for the Silverline range of tools. Their range is
very large and the tools are of excellent quality. We can supply the whole range
of tools, and will be pleased to quote you for your requirements. Any
special orders will be ordered on a Friday, with delivery expected to us on the
following Monday. We will be stocking a wide range of their tools for craft and
hobby users. Whilst their tools are not the cheapest, they are good
quality and we will be offering a discount on the recommended retail price to
keep the prices comparable with other brands.
Pre printed models and sign sheets.
We are finally ready to release pre printed items from our range of downloadable
products. At first there will be the range of sign sheets in 4mm scale and
a few of the model kits again in 4mm scale. Each model comes with the required
card to complete the assembly. These are now offered from our website at an
introductory price of retail minus two pounds. This offer is open until the end
of November. At present these are printed in small batches, which will allow us
to carry out any minor modifications where necessary.
The models are the next stage up from the pre cut Superquick and Metcalfe
kits, but not as hard to make if you were scratch building the model.
If you are a trade customer and would like to stock these items we do have a
very competitive scheme which will allow you to purchase an initial stock, which
will be one of each sign sheet and model in all the different texture
finishes, at 25% less than trade price.
New wire kept in stock.
We have now decided to keep 1/0.6mm solid core electrical wire in stock.
This solid core cable is rated at 1.8 amps and is suitable for DCC dropper
wires. This item is now available in a range of 11 colours. We are selling this wire
in 10m coils, with full 100m reels to follow later. The wire is
British made and is very competitively priced.
We will continue to stock all of our 7/0.2, 16/0/2, 24/0.2 and 32/0.2. wires
in all 11 colours.
We are also soon going to sell the wire in small coils of 5 metres instead of
the full roll or 10m coils. This is to allow those with smaller layouts to not
have to purchase 10m coils and not use the full lengths. We believe that this
will be a first in this industry, and will help to reduce model railway building
costs in this time of recession where money is tight, especially where hobbies
We also now stock a range of 4, 6, 8 and 12 core 7/0.2 cables. These are
fully detailed on the relevant website page within the electrical wire products.
This may be a cheaper option for those who wish to keep to a wire colour scheme.
When signing up for an account on the Railwayscenics website there is an
option to sign up to a newsletter. Previously we have not had the time to
send these to our valued customers. We have now updated the website and
now plan to use this facility to keep our customers updated of new products and
changes that we are making. There will also be a section detailing any
special offers that we are running. Each newsletter comes with the ability
to cancel any subscription to this service, so if you do not wish to receive
these mailings, then just click on the link at the bottom of the email.
Water tower textures
Our water tower kit has now been updated and includes a choice of 13
different external texture finishes.
New platform kits textures.
We have now released our platform kits in 13 different brick and stone
textures. These textures will be applied to all of our new releases and
all of our current models when time allows. This was done due to customer
feedback. When ordering one of these items please select an option below
the item description.
Platform waiting shelter kit.
This is the latest of our kits to be released in new texture finishes.
This one now has 14 different texture finishes. Be sure to select an option on
the product info pages as we have some customers who think that the website
knows which texture they require the model in.
New range of products.
We had been asked whether we stock any other model railway items. In
the past we have always said No. Well now we do. We now stock
most scenic materials, a wide range of electrical items, baseboard constriction
parts, electrical wire and components and much more. We are slowly adding items to our website, but
it is taking time. We hope that people find our prices competitive, and if
the feedback already received is anything to go by, we are competitive.
Our postal charges are not overly expensive, and we do plan to reuse packaging
If you would like us to get items for you, we will be pleased to give a
Railway club discounts.
We are looking at the possibility of giving any model railway club a discount
when they purchase items from our website. We have the discount package
ready, and only have to find the time to add it. If you are the chairman
of a model club, and would be interest in a discount on all products that we
sell, use the contact us form to let us know. This discount would only be
for items bought by the club for club use. We do have a process to check
each purchase, and should we find any club abusing the system, it will be
removed and none will benefit. Do not spoil it for others.
New style instructions.
We have now developed a new style set of instructions for our soon to be
released 4 terraced cottages kit. These instructions now include images if
the assembly procedure. We will soon be altering all of our instructions
on all released kits as time permits. Many thanks to the people that
helped with this idea.
Brick paper sheets.
We have been busy designing new brick paper sheets in all of the scales. We will
be uploading them slowly over the next few months. We have also added some new
sign sheets in the larger scales. These include modern road signs, site safety
signs and some railway travel posters. We have just completed a sheet of
interior detailing for 7mm ft modellers. This sheet includes items to add detail
to the interior of buildings. There are pictures, rugs, fires, fireplaces, and
things like that on one sheet.
We have now uploaded some of these new scale sheets to our site, and the
response we are getting is positive and definitely worth the time and expense in
creating these sheets.
We have now increased the printed areas of most of our texture sheets.
This is particularly beneficial to those who model in the larger scales as you
now get more texture for the price.
We have had many comments from people that model UK layouts but in scales other
than OO scale, that there are no models for them. Some have tried to rescale our
models by printing at a different size, but have lost the quality of the
original.. We are therefore starting to release some of the models and paper
texture sheets in other scales. We are producing texture sheets and brick papers
on 2mm ft, 3mm ft, 3.5mm ft and some in 7mm ft. As time allows we are planning
to release models in all the scales. It does take time, so do bear with us.
We would like to know what you, our customers, would like to see models of. We
do not really want to supply the same models as other companies, as there needs
to be a large range available for people to model. If you have any ideas or
suggestions, please contact us using the contact us form. Please remember that
these models will be made out of card, and therefore need to be relatively
simple to make. If we like your ideas, and we can find plans of your suggested
building, we may decide to model it.
