As well as our range of new models and accessories, we also have a variety of used equipment, most of which we have taken in part exchange.  A selection of used locomotives and rolling stock may be seen in our shop.  A further number of used locomotives are advertised on this web site, but these are mostly not on display in our showroom and customers should first reserve items from the web site by telephone before visitingLocomotives reserved may then be examined and seen running prior to to purchase. The Deleted Hornby and Bachmann pages contain locomotives which are new, not secondhand, but are no longer in the current catalogues.
