Warley Model Rail Exhibition - Help required

At the 2006 Warley Model Rail Exhibition at the NEC, as you went in to
the hall, over on the far left was a trade stand specialising in motors
and gearboxes for locos. It had a three letter name and was selling (!)
specification sheets on the various motors and gearbox combinations.
Can anyone remember the name please? Due to recent domestic problems I
no longer have the show guide or spec sheet.
Many thanks chaps and chapesses

Are you sure about the location and the name? I've just been through the show guide and nothing matches. Have you looked at the show website? Try

I understand your (!) This is an aspect of the model railway trade (and others) that you are expected to buy the literature that enables you to spend money with them. I don't have a problem if you get a nice glossy reference catalogue (although Squires' catalogue is free), but charging 50p for a crappy photocopied sheet of A4 is a bit much. I can just imagine the reaction if I asked my customers at work to pay for information about the company! Advertising is supposed to be covered in the overheads!

Most of these companies are spare time cottage industries. It costs money to print and give away leaflets. Especially in the several thousand for a large show.
However many of them give them when you purchase their products.
The only 3-letter name I can think of, is ABC whom I don't think were at Warley. They sell high end motors and gearboxes for O and 1 scales.
If that is the outfit you meant they are at

Not generally exhibiting at Warley, they're not.
Yes it does. That's all part of running a business. If I was a small trader exhibiting at Warley, I would want as many people as possible to know about my product, and to be able to find information about it at a later date. Exactly as in the OP's case - I bet that if the leaflet was free Mart would have picked it and wouldn't be asking us now if we can even give some clue as to who the company might be. That doesn't strike me as good marketing.
As a multi-hatted wearing General Manager of a manufacturing company, a couple of years ago we spent about £1500 plus many hours mail-shotting potential customers. We expected 99% of those to go in the bin. In fact, we had about a 2% response rate, which resulted in sales far exceeding the initial cost. How many sales does it take to recoup the cost of a few sheets of A4?

From my experience of volume printing costs in printing out PDF versions of manuals, it's not the cost of the paper, but the cost of inkjet cartridges :-)

Ah, but if you were printing lots of leaflets to give out at a show, you wouldn't be using an inkjet! You would be using one of the surprisingly cheap (in quantity) print shops out there.
