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
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 !
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
or from Steam at One who handle non-trade direct sales
for SMP email@example.com.

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
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.
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
