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.

Excellent shop. Customer service is second to none. J.B.
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.
Thanks for great service regarding the 350 Desiro train by Farish. D.R.S.
I would just like to say what a pleasure it is to visit your shop and buy things. Your customer service is excellent and second to none. Nothing is too much trouble . The shop is well laid out and your website is up to date. Today was my second visit in a week and I loved it. A big thankyou to Barry today and he must be one of the most honest men I have met. Looking forward to my next visit already
Thank you mech models
Excellent service, particularly as some products had to be specially obtained from the U.S. I can now proceed to build my trackside warehouse with the correct windows
Thanks for the very prompt delivery which arrived this morning first thing.
Very impressed with the service and I’ll definitely be using Mech Models again. Great price, in stock, reasonable delivery charges and very fast delivery.
My craftsman structure kit from Bar Mills was short of a significant sheet of parts. Thanks to your efforts I received two replacement sheets in the post within less than a fortnight. Your customer service is nothing short of excellent and is highly recommended.
Got a superb range of American models from all the main manufacturers bought some rare wagons which were in stock definitely worth a look at their website and great postal service ! Mervyn
So pleased to have found Mech Models, they have a wide range of appropriate US stock and a very easy to use website. One of the recent items ordered from them became unavailable and I received a phone call very shortly afterwards offering either a refund or back order - I chose the latter as the item was for my spares box. It was a really pleasant conversation and if/when we get over the current crisis I will certainly be visiting them in the flesh. This is my second order from them and in both instances the items were dispatched promptly and well packed. I wish them every success and have put them at the top of my favourites list for future use.

Just had another delivery from the guys at Mech Models. Paid yesterday and it arrived this morning. This is what you call service! Thank you so much guys. Steve, Southend-On-Sea
I have been using Mech Models for a few months now since I got back in to US model railroading. I have found the service to be exemplary and the range offered to be very comprehensive. Their communication is excellent and they have been very helpful when I have been in contact about pre-Orders. Goods are shipped really quickly and are always as described. If you are into American trains then this is the place to go. Steve, Southend-On-Sea, Essex
I ordered 2 American locomotives and some rolling stock from Barry, having found them quite by chance via an internet search. He was exceptionally helpful, and even sent me pictures and a video prior to me ordering. Items were delivered extremely quickly, thank you very much Colin, and were exceptionally well packaged. Both the locomotives and rolling stock are absolutely fabulous. Thank you both very much, I will definitely be ordering from you again.
My very first mail order was dealt with very efficiently, the two items were mailed promptly and when they arrived they were very well packaged, will use again. Mick, Luton
Very helpful team, offering a brew on arrival (always appreciated), and happy to leave you browsing. Barry demo'ed the loco I wanted and offered to look at a loco I'd bought from them last year which was proving temperamental. There's no pressure to buy, and he was advising a telephone customer on suitable locos while I played with my new acquisition. Alf, Northwich, Cheshire
Barry and his staff are friendly and extremely knowledgeable. There is never any pressure to buy and visiting the well stocked shop is always a treat I look forward to. Simon, Cambridge
I am new to modelling North American railroads so finding this dealer was like finding Alladin's cave. The store is located in an industrial estate and is part of a small manufacturing unit. Having traveled quite some distance from home I was offered a hot drink and I needed to use the toilet which was no problem. The owner spent ages with me giving helpful advice and tips which would save me money. I could have spent all day chatting and browsing with no pressure on me. Lots of equipment in stock and more available to order all at reasonable prices. Well done. This is how to do it. Many thanks. Julian Hemstock. Julian, Eastwood. Nottingham
Hi Colin, Thank you for the excellent service as I'm new to the HO scale, this was my first purchase and the extra detail is superb, along with the first class delivery which was on time and the protection you used to stop any damage was extremely effective.
I hope it's not too long before I decide to upgrade to DCC and buy one of the premium models.
Just to thank you for brilliant service. I ordered my few goods online on Tuesday and they were delivered Thursday. I was a little concerned about the 2 lengths of track as I have had damaged track from other suppliers in the past, but your packing was superb and everything was in pristine condition. Once again thanks for superb service.
Just received my goods which I ordered only two days ago. First class
service. Many, many thanks

First time I have dealt with your company. The item was above my expectation, it arrived super fast and was exceptionally packaged well. I have signed up to your Web site newsletter. So it looks like I will be keeping up to speed with what's available within your company. Thank you for my first time experience.
Good Day All.
Received order of Athearn CNW Dash 9-44CW x 3 this morning, all in good order.
Thank you very much for the excellent service.
I love the packaging.
Have a Good Xmas and a Happy New Year.
Hello, A quick note from “across the pond” to let you know the postman delivered the N scale Milwaukee Road Super Dome car this morning. The package as well as the car were in fine shape. I will add you to my list of UK vendors as I couldn’t ask for better service as well as quality of the shipment. I searched for this car for quite some time and was delighted when I discovered it on your website. Thank you for the quick dispatch and high quality of service.

Hi Colin & Barry,
I have received the train today. Amazing service. Thank you.
Have a great Christmas.
Hi Barry and Colin,
Many thanks for Jeff's parcel which arrived today and is already being sorted and put to use. It's taken his mind of his bad back and has made him admit that the place for an 82 year old gentleman is in his den dealing with stanchions and grab irons and the like rather than up a stepladder, doing gymnastics mending a fence !! We're very grateful and just let us know as and when the other items arrive and meanwhile thanks for the web site being kept so up to date. Many thanks,
Barbara and Jeff
Thank you very much for my order which arrived safely and very promptly despite the disruption caused by the weather. I am very pleased with the Broadway UP FEF-3, the detail is very good it runs very well, has impressive sound and produces a good volume of smoke. Thank you for the complimentary smoke fluid, I will be careful not to run the smoke unit dry or overfill it either. Thanks again for your excellent service. G.P.
He’s done it !!! Out of nowhere, when all the preorders have been fulfilled, Barry has, somehow, found the locomotives that I had thought were going to be unobtainable. Service beyond expectations. Thank you, Barry Kind regards.
Hello Barry & colleagues, Just a quick note to thank you for the dispatch of my recent raffle prizes won at your recent Open Day and Americana Weekend. These were received here today and arrived safely, well packed and undamaged. I enjoyed the event, viewing the layouts exhibited and the opportunity to wander around the shop and view what you had on offer. Also I thank you for the time you took to chat to me when we met. I have no doubt that you haven’t seen the last of me!
With best regards
