Trains4U is one of the largest Model Railway specialists in the east of England

Occupying a large 1800 square foot showroom spread across 2 floors, we offer thousands of products from over 80 manufacturers.

Trains4U was formed in July 2004 in response to the closure of the last Model Railway shop in Peterborough the previous year.

Owned by Father and Son Steve and Gareth Helliwell, the business opened with a small stock of Hornby, Bachmann, Peco, Gaugemaster and Fleischmann products in a 900 sq ft unit in Peterborough's St' David's Square trading estate.

Demand for our products and services was unprecedented and we quickly diversified into N gauge, DCC and slot cars, whilst expanding our range of suppliers to provide more models, scenic materials, tools and paints.

 All of our railway rolling stock and our slot cars are displayed in large glass cases for easy browsing.

Quote from their website:

Minerva Model Railways launched in the spring of 2015 with its acclaimed 0 gauge RTR Peckett E Class 0-4-0 saddle-tank locomotive. The company was formed by Chris Basten of Dragon Models and Chris Klein of Ixion, both experienced businessmen and model railway enthusiasts, who were frustrated with the long delays between announcements of new models and subsequent delivery

The owners are committed 7mm scale modellers – we know our business Our models are only available from Minerva directly or selected added-value suppliers Each model is checked and run before delivery We deliver in a reasonable time We do not over-promise.

Since launch, we have delivered models of the Peckett E class, Victory side tank, 3 varieties of the Great Western 57XX/8750 pannier tank locomotive, Iron Minks, Gunpowder Vans,a modified Mink, and the latest, a GW Open A 5 plank wagon on time, sometimes within 3 months of announcement.

Our fourth loco, the Manning Wardle K class was again delivered on time All this shows that it is possible to produce accurate models without waiting for years. The future We intend to produce at least one new 7mm scale model locomotive each year, together with rolling stock that will have universal appeal. This will continue to be combined with brilliant customer service, outstanding quality, competitive prices and attention to detail.

Quote from their website:

DoubleO Scenics have produced a range of Static Grass blends, containing up to six different colours in order to recreate each of the various shades and textures of our Static Grass and we've named them for their most suitable use or season.

In general the majority of modellers will usually model the summer season by default as they prefer leaves on the trees and flowers in the gardens etc. but there are a growing number of modellers wishing to model other seasons and some wishing to model all four seasons across their layout.

Whichever you choose to model you will notice from the pictures below that the DoubleO Scenics Static Grass blends are not a uniform shade of green like other makes but each blend contains a varying degree of tones for a more realistic looking grass (even the Growing Cereal Crop).

All our products are manufactured in our own workshop in the UK. Most are made from whitemetal (a tin/lead alloy). 

Our range has more than 750 models in N and OO including kits for you to make and paint yourself and a growing number that are handpainted and ready for immediate use.

We have graded each of the kits to give an understanding of ease of assembly and what is involved. 

For those who have never used whitemetal before, or dont know our range, we have created sample packs in N and OO which are available for as little as £1.25 and are delivered post free in the UK.

Quote from their website:

I now produce cast metal model 4mm OO, P4, EM gauge scale figures after becoming bemused at the lack of choice and quality of cast metal figures available to furnish The Worlds End modern image project. I noticed most layouts were also perhaps beginning to look the same with regards to figures, so I wanted to produce my own unique ones.

These figures are available to purchase at very reasonable price either direct from this website or direct at one of the model railway shows I am attending. This has progressed to supplying the figures either as unpainted castings, or fully panted and varnished, and carrying out painting commissions for other people.

I also purchase 7mm O gauge figures for painting and selling from the ‘Heroes of the Footplate’ 7mm O gauge.

Each kit is supplied in the form of flat brass sheets, etched with surface texture and fold lines. The parts are sized and shaped to assemble into a sturdy brass model, by means of folding the brass along the etched lines. There are 'tabs' at the corners to allow for the models to be glued together. Some modellers who are already adept at soldering could use that method too, though in all product testing I use glue. All the kits are supplied flat-packed and unpainted.

My name is Andy Dayton and for many years I have specialised in, and collected, the excellent range of Wrenn "OO Gauge" Model Railway products (including Wrenn/Lima "N" and Wrenn 152 Formula Racing) manufactured by G. & R. Wrenn Ltd, Basildon, Essex, England.

Originally started in 1950, Wrenn became a leading model manufacture with the company making its mark on the industry predominantly between 1966 to 1992 - recognised as Periods 1 to 4.

All Wrenn products offered are pre-owned , fully tested, and refirbished where possible, back to the original Wrenn standard.

In addition, I have added NEW WRENN products an exciting development for those running Wrenn and/or the Collectors market. Hornby Dublo and other quality used models have also been added, due to the positve response from collectors and those running mixed traffic on "OO" Gauge Layouts.I have also added the Wrenn Railways Collector Club (WRCC) wagons dating back to Pre 2000 and current releases to date. The Club represents the full strength of the hobby, why not join!

York Modelmaking was established in 1969, manufacturing architectural and museum models. The purchase of our first laser cutter in 2007 revolutionised our building techniques, allowing us to create previously unattainable levels of intricate detail. The laser-cutting process also speeded up the making of the building components, making these quality items affordable for hobby modellers. We launched our unique range of laser-cut architectural components for railway modellers in 2008.
