"The Great Lockdown", Update 5th July 2020
"Sorry Folks" Closed Until September

I now have such a volume of back orders that it will require all my production & sales capacity to fulfil them before September. I feel it would be unfair to customers if I
continued taking mail orders that I could not complete in a reasonable time.

So I think its best to call a halt, concentrate on restocking & backorders,
then reopen, with hopefully, normal service in September.

I am still able to provide help, advice & after sales service.
If you wish, please telephone, 01544 318263 or
email: james.mcgeown2@btinternet.com

Look after yourself, find the positives, Railway modelling is wonderful!
Best Regards, Jim McGeown & Family.
