The Comet gets it first public appearance tomorrow, 9th March at Narrow Gauge North, which is held at Benton Park School near Leeds/Bradford airport.You can find more information and directions on the Narrow Gauge North web site.
The loco will be part of the 7¼" gauge Society display along with some narrow gauge rolling stock. If you want to have a look at the loco and have a great day out visit the show and come and say hello.
To celebrate our new website we have introduced two new locos to the range. The Scooter is a ride on auto trolley style loco, which can carry the driver and can also be configured as a two-person tram. This simple, robust design can also be used to haul passengers or freight on tight radius tracks in the garden or at the club. You can read the full story on the Scooter by clicking here
The newest addition to the range is The Comet, initially available in 7¼” gauge. The all steel construction comes finished in the colour of your choice and can be built without any special tools or engineering knowledge in a weekend. The loco will make its first public appearance at the Narrow Gauge North Show on Saturday 9th March. Take a look at the specification and the pictures of Comet No 1 in the gallery.
The new web site design allows us a lot more flexibility. The last design had evolved through a number of iterations as the company expanded, adding new products to the range, and increasing the amount of information we make available. We had finally reached a point where we were outgrowing the design, and the code behind it that makes the whole site work.
If you are visiting the Model Engineer Show at Sandown Park this weekend you will find us on stands 25-28.
We will be taking the Geep and a selection of 5" gauge locos including the new Class 24.

Off to Trencherfield Mill (close to Wigan Pier this weekend for the Wigan Powerfest which is part of the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry week.
Southport and Wigan Model Engineering Clubs are taking displays and there is a chance to see the mill engine at full throttle.
We are planning to build a loco over the weekend as part of our display, so if you spot a bloke with a bag of spanners, a mug of tea and half a loco come and say hello.
We have just completed our Geep demonstrator. We decided on Santa Fe Warbonnet livery as it is my favourite. To stay faithful to the original Warbonnets we have used stainless steel for the side and top panels.
We have added an extra foot to the overall length. At 7ft long there is plenty of space for a comfortable seat with ample legroom and plenty of storage space for essentials such as batteries or lunch boxes.
We are taking the Geep to the 7¼” gauge society AGM at Woking on Friday September 21 and will be there until Sunday 23rd.
Geep Kits start at £3995 click here for more details...
