Locomotive Repair Service

From £20 Per Locomotive + Parts + Return Postage

(if not brought in person)

If a model requires extensive work that will result in a cost of more than £30, we will contact you before commencing any work.


*We are unable to offer these services while you wait*

We aim to complete all work within four weeks, but delays may occur when spares are not readily available or during busy periods.

Please bear in mind we are a working shop, and we offer this service to help our customers.

The shop sales are what keeps the business going, and takes priority over repairs, so during busy periods, repairs may take longer.

Any repairs we are unable to complete will not be charged.

Please DO NOT post items without contacting us first.

Royal Mail often fail to deliver in our area, and do not tell us if they are holding post, so items can end up being returned because we are unaware they are waiting at the Sorting Office.

Because of this we will supply an alternate address for receiving servicing.

We Digital Fit to OO locomotives that are DCC Ready or non-Ready.

We will Digital Fit to N Gauge locomotives that are DCC Ready, but not non-ready.
