We used to stock this Rob, but demand was poor and we ceased to handle the range around ten years ago - sorry!
Not even sure who owns the range these days; it used to be The Train Shop in Warwick.

I think the same people own the range although I believe the shop in Warwick has closed. You can get it mail order from Mainly Trains

It was open a few weeks back when I went ??
However, the model railway in the back was curtained off, and there did appear to be someone new behind the counter as I overheard him say to the female "I hate having to pass every customer request to you, I know nothing!" Now I'm not sure if he was referring to the computer stock system (for orders) or just the hobby in general.
Quality stock, if not quantity !

Not the same shop. "The Train Shop" (retail downstairs, SMP HQ upstairs if memory serves) closed quite some time ago. A new shop opened fairly recently, up nearer towards the castle - I don't think there's any connection at all to the old business.

Thanks John and all Mainly trains have the track but not the joiners which I need more right now. Will Peco joiners work, they seem a bit big? Rob

I must admit I haven't got any to hand to double check , but I think Peco N gauge joiners work OK on SMP 00 track.

They do. I have used them for thirty years now on my SMP track. They might need easing out just a touch but they will work fine.

I haven't been for over a year but it was a nice fresh, clean, well layed out shop (unlike some cramped and dingy MR establishments) but not much stock.

Peco N gauge joiners will work. No problem with the insulated ones but the metal ones need a bit of easing. I haven't tried the Code 75 00 ones.
The best metal joiners for SMP, if you can find them, are the old Minitrix N gauge joiners which have a vertical piece on each side that fits nicely into the rail web.

Hi John Try Rural Railways. Although he doesn't have a website his address and phone number are on the net he does do mail order and can be found at many of the larger exhibitions. Hope this is of some help
