Peco NR-P425 7-plank Mineral Wagon – Huntley & Palmers Ltd No.21 (N gauge)£9.15
N gauge ready-to-run model. The world famous biscuit makers, Huntley & Palmers, date back to 1822 when a small biscuit shop was opened by Joseph Huntley and his son, Thomas.

This attractive livery painted in purple-brown with bold white lettering make a great addition to any N gauge layout and feature fine details such as a printed sole bar with owner plates.
Dapol 4D-003-015 Class 52 Western Diesel – D1034 Western Dragoon Maroon SYP (OO scale)£129.15
The Class 52 diesel hydraulic locomotive was introduced by the BR Western Region in 1962 to provide high speed passenger and freight services. To achieve this the locomotive was fitted with two Maybach engines coupled with a Voith 3 speed hydraulic transmission. This had the added advantage that the locomotive could still run if one engine failed. Problems with the transmission however, meant that the locomotive experienced very high maintenance and operating costs and could only achieve the acclaimed 90MPH top speed in certain circumstances. In the end these disadvantages meant that the class was replaced by 1977 with the more efficient and faster Class 50’s and Class 143 HST’s. The classic elegant design with sweeping curves and unmistakable presence has always meant that this locomotive has been a firm favourite with Diesel aficionados. Dapol have managed to capture this character through detailed laser scans and in-depth collaborative research with fellow modellers and the model features:
- Detailed body with etched fann grills and separately fitted hand rails
- Superb weathered finish
- Finely detailed and cast wheels
- Metal sprung buffers
- 5 pole Super Creep Motor for controlled pulling power and fine slow speed running
- Directional light with internal cab light
- DCC ready with provision for a PluX 21 pin decoder
- Accessory bag with optional fitted components
- Separately supplied etched brass name and number plates
- Alternate bogies supplied for negotiating tighter radius curves
Superquick C8.0 Embankment Arches (Red Brick) (OO scale card kit)£6.25
OO scale card kit for a superbly adaptable and versatile pair of arches. In each kit you get two arch spaces that you can do lots with. Included in the kit is the option to inset the arches - with or without the unit fronts - you could create a retaining wall, either vertical or sloped - you also have the option of opening this up into a tunnel entrance or even a bridge! The arches are compatible with the A14 Red Brick Bridge and D1 Red Brick Building Papers. This card kit is ready creased and die-cut with small tabs remaining – cut these to release the parts and fold along the creases. Ideal for the novice or young modeller, the resulting models are sturdy enough to withstand use on a train set.

Peco NR-P424 7-plank Mineral Wagon – Lunt No.724 (N gauge)£9.00
N gauge ready-to-run model. The Lunt Brothers were colliery agents and coal exporters as well as coke, lime and limestone merchants. Their head office was based in Birmingham and they operated coal depots in London, Manchester, Stourbridge and Wolverhampton which means they were a common site across a large portion of the country. In addition to this they also operated quarries in Denbigh and Ruthin. This attractive livery with black lozenge bordered with a crisp white as well as the red shading on the 'LUNT' will be sure to appeal to many N Gauge modellers or collectors of wagons. A run of these wagons would make a great touch for many coal yards.
