Customer Feedback

Hi Barry,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for my two tier 4 locomotives. As you can see in the photo I've put them to work already. They are awesome. Only thing is I've had to put some extra details on all my other locos now!!. Thanks again for such great service.

Kind regards

"Great Model Shop friendly knowledgeable people."(SR)

Excellent shop. Customer service is second to none. (JB)

I had a few a few issues with a Scaletrains Big Blow turbine locomotive which I had ordered through Mech Models, Barry went above and beyond the call of duty to source a suitable replacement loco for me. This is the sort of customer care we would all like to  get but rarely do, so I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of this retailer. Andrew (Kiwi Tommo) Thompson.
