October Update

It's been a while since I did a blog update, apologies for that, so let's try and get up to date with what's been going on these past few months.

There's been plenty of designing going on in the background and we've managed to release some new products as a result:-

Fuelling grid packs in both OO gauge and O gauge. I'm hoping at some point to also release these in N gauge, but there's a few items in the queue at present, so cannot give a definitive answer as to when these will become available.

A recent launch was the OO gauge Immingham Refuelling Shed which I really enjoyed designing and making. it's a cracking little kit that doesn't take up much room but looks great. Will it become available in N gauge and O gauge?....... watch this space!

Our second N gauge product launch was at the Taunton Railex last weekend and that was the 6 panel concrete fencing. It's proved very popular in OO and O, so we've now added it across our range of scales that we currently do.

So, what's on the go?
The main attention at the moment is the design of the OO gauge Old Oak Common 3 road fuelling shed, the one that led to the turntable. I've spent a good few hours studying a plethora of images online and also managing to do some Google tool measurements and have come up with a small end diorama that we've showcased at both Milton Keynes at the beginning of this month and also last weekend at Taunton. We've had some really great feedback on this and hopefully over the coming couple of months I can turn my attention back to this and get a sample full build done. The kit will more than likely be available as a 1/2 size as well as a full size as this is nearly 700mm, plus it will more than likely replace our current 3 road shed that we have and we'll retire that one, especially as someone decided to copy it. We've come on leaps and bounds since that kit and the detailing that we now do is far superior to that kit, albeit it has proved very popular these past 4 years. So, as someone who used to visit Old Oak Common most weekends in my youth as it was only a 30 minute drive from where I used to live, I'm really excited about getting this one done and will no doubt be our best depot kit to date.
Another kit that I would like to get back to doing and completing is the OO gauge Westbury Admin Block, the one that you can see at the end of the platform. It'll make an ideal laser cut kit and hopefully be worth the wait.
I also want to move on with the new O gauge single road shed at some point as well, so there's lots going on behind the scenes at Railway Laser Lines.
Keep an eye out on our Facebook page and our Instagram page for the latest in what's happening.
I'll be helping James again on his DCC Train Automation stand at Warley this year and no doubt I'll bring along some of our kits that we have in stock for sale.

Happy Modelling
