Welcome
·  Who am I?

I'm Nick - for over twenty years now I have been trading under the name Nick Tozer Railway Books. As a collector and enthusiast myself (before taking early retirement I spent thirty years in the footplate grades on British Rail) I have a good understanding of what has been published on the subject and how useful as a reference tool any particular title is - I enjoy searching for those elusive titles and if you ask me to conduct a search you may rest assured that when I find a copy it will be at a price that I believe reflects the true value of the item.

The Kitmaster Collectors Club was formed in 1990 by a small group of enthusiasts to document the history of Kitmaster models and also to help and encourage the collecting of them.

It is a non-commercial organisation which aims to link collectors together for the exchange of archive material, advice & information. Funds generated through kit sales are used for the day-to-day running of the club, to expand and research the Kitmaster archive, to prepare and distribute promotional material and to secure important kit collections for the club when these come on to the market. Members receive first refusal on all kits in club stock through the regular sales list. The club also provides an exclusive forum for the buying, selling or swapping of the kits. The club has over one hundred and fifty members worldwide and many associates.

Introduction: London Road Models NE Class O/G5 locomotive kit. - Photograph courtesy Steamline SheffieldSerious about your modelling?

……….We are.

 London Road Models has been designing and manufacturing 4mm etched kits since 1988, when John Redrup produced some etched L&NWR 50′ non corridor carriage kits for the P4 exhibition layout London Road, to provide some much needed stock.

Since then, LRM has grown to provide one of the largest ranges of etched kits available to the 4mm modeller. The emphasis is on the pre-grouping period up to 1923, although the prototypes for many of the models in the range lasted into the post-grouping era of the 1930’s, with a significant number surviving into BR ownership.

Welcome to the website of the European Railways Association - a society open to everyone interested in the railways of Europe.

Founded in Autumn 2013, this new association is for everyone interested in European railways, whether in full size or model. The ERA is solely web based although you may encounter our promotional stands at UK railway and model railway events. We welcome all prototype enthusiasts and modellers across the Continent irrespective of country, scale, gauge and make. Although occasional technical terms will appear in their native languages, our website is fully English language based.

We are THE organisation catering for both new and veteran railway modellers working in 4mm scale using a track gauge of 16.5mm - the most common for models of UK prototypes.

Our objectives are-

To welcome ALL modellers with an interest in OO.

How the Society functions

The Talyllyn Railway Preservation Society has real and effective control over the Talyllyn Railway. The Society's Council of twenty, half subject to re-election at each year's Annual General Meeting, nominates three directors to the Board of the Talyllyn Railway Company. The other two directors are appointed by a descendant of Sir Haydn Jones, the former owner of the line.

The 2mm Scale Association exists to promote and facilitate modelling at the scale of 2mm:1ft. The scale has a long history as the smallest practical finescale standard.

By joining the Association, members gain access to a wealth of knowledge and our exclusive component range designed to enable simple and accurate construction.

The Scalefour Society caters for the needs of railway modellers working to the scale of 4mm/ft (1:76.2), the most popular of the British model railway scales. It promotes and encourages the use of effective modelling techniques and fine scale standards among all 4mm railway modellers with a particular emphasis on the use of scale wheels and track.

This web site contains a great deal of information for all modellers and is a showcase for the Society. It also contains our Forum, where you can read about many aspects of finescale modelling.

009 Society - the world's largest small scale narrow gauge modelling group aimed at those modelling narrow gauge railways of scales around the 3.5 - 4mm to the foot.

We aim to cater for all aspects of small scale narrow gauge railway modelling, both for the beginner and the experienced modeller alike, for the scratch-builder. the kit builder and the modeller who prefers proprietary ready to run equipment. Whether you are an active modeller or an armchair modeller, you will find a welcome in the 009 SOCIETY.

 Based in south Warwickshire, we boast a private quarter acre water with unlimited daytime access, a clubhouse and free parking.

A  club which prides itself on having a friendly and very helpful membership. We sail electric, steam and yachts, sorry no IC. The clubhouse has tea/coffee making facilities with integral toilet.Disabled parking and wheel chair access also catered for. An informal gathering for general sailing in a relaxed atmosphere on Thursday.

What Is The HMRS?

The Historical Model Railway Society is a UK Registered Educational Charity "founded in 1950 by historians and modellers to collect and exchange records, drawings and photographs in the interests of historical accuracy in modelling". (Andrew Dow in The Oxford Companion to British Railway History, Simmons & Biddle (editors), OUP 1997)

The Society maintains a strong commitment toward obtaining, storing and distributing information of value and integrity. Material placed in its care will be treated with due regard to its information value.

The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway is a volunteer operated heritage railway in Gloucestershire offering a round trip of over 24 miles. It uses part of the route of the former Great Western Railway's main line from Birmingham to Cheltenham which used to run via Stratford-upon-Avon.

 It now operates steam and heritage diesel trains between Cheltenham Racecourse and Laverton through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Cotswolds. The line commands wonderful views of the nearby sleepy hamlets and villages, with outstanding outlooks across to the Malvern Hills and beyond. The railway is in the process of being extended to Broadway in Worcestershire.
