Railwayscenics is a small independent supplier of model railway related
products, electronic components, materials and tools. We purchase our stock in relatively small quantities
which does affect the buying price, and therefore the selling price. As we
purchase directly from different suppliers and not a general wholesaler, we are
able to offer a competitively priced item of equal or better quality. We
are purchasing our electrical stock from the same suppliers as some of the
larger wholesalers and model shops.
We have tried to keep our prices competitive with other similar suppliers,
and have spent time price checking our items against other suppliers. We
are cheaper than some of the larger suppliers, but not all. As an online
retailer only, with no large overheads we can afford to do this. This does
work against us, as several of the well known model railway suppliers such as
Gaugemaster, Peco, Slaters, Ratio, and many more, will not supply to us. No actual
shop, no supply. We have not let this get us down, and we are slowly
sourcing equivalent products from suppliers, mainly in the UK, and in many
cases, at better prices.
We have recently been comparing our prices against items available on Ebay,
and again, in most cases we are cheaper and offer a better quality item. You also have the advantage that
we do not overcharge on our Royal Mail delivery, as some ebayers do. We also
give our products full item descriptions to help you make an informed decision
on which product will fit your needs and requirements.
If you think a product is very over priced, let us know. We will see
what we can do. If you think we should be stocking an item that is currently not
listed, let us know. We welcome all feedback whether positive or negative.
If you think you can supply with equivalent quality products at a cheaper
price, get in touch.
