ALTERNATIVE SUPPLIER - THIN FILES
A little while ago we sold out of the 20thou files useful for cleaning between checkrails etc.
Whilst we have located a supplier, they are based in Japan and it would not make financial sense to import in bulk due to import taxes.
You may wish to use these links to acquire direct youself: http://www.hlj.com/product/gnzfm07/Sup and http://www.hlj.com/product/MNEG-Y2/Sup
NEW PRODUCT - MAGAZINE ARCHIVE
The Magazine Archive is now available again in Shop 1, item P-109. This is now on a USB Memory Stick rather than a DVD which means that you can update onto the stack and keep all of the archive together.
Available now at £20.
IMPORTANT - SHOP CLOSURE
Due to family commitments SHOP 3 will be out of commission for the whole of February 2014. If you are likely to require stock from that shop please place your order as soon as possible.
NEW PRODUCTS GEAR-SETS & WORMS
New in Shop 3 item 3-363 metric 21:1 gearset includes brass skew cut gear and two nylatron worms. We are now also stocking replacement M0.25 worms in brass at £2 each. Choose between 1.0mm bore and 1.5mm bore.
Easitrac is sold in two pack options. The smaller pack previously shown as "10 Pack" is sufficient to make 1.2m. There are actually 20 sprues in this pack, each containing two
panels of six sleepers each. The Shop Lists have been made clearer. The larger pack has enough sleepers to make five times as much; 6 metres of track.
NEW PRODUCTS - BUFFERS
You will note the appearance of a number of new wagon buffers in the Shop 2 List.
These are a sizable chunk of the ongoing cast brass buffer project.
You will recall that the in initial type an RCH 4 rib buffer was released in a high and low quality version.
The next seven are all released in the high quality version only and are £4.50 for a sprue which contains 12 buffers.
As before, these are priced on the basis that you will get at least eight usable buffers.
Having examined a number of samples, I have not found one with less than 11 perfect buffers so far; therefore a bargain!
NEW PRODUCT - SLIDE CHAIRS
As an offshoot of a member's personal project, we have an etch of Slide Chairs in Shop 1.
Item 1-145 is an etch of 50 chairs that can be used with fully soldered pointwork or for inclusion of soldered strengthening in Easitrac points.
Each chair is a single layer with one fold up lug. Just £1 for each etch of 50.
PRICE INCREASE - BUFFER STOPS
With an increase from the supplier these items 1-070 to 1-081 are now £2.20 each.
