For the 009 narrow gauge modellers amongst us PECO have some good news.  At the Warley model railway exhibition in November they announced that they were starting to produce ready to run UK outline rolling stock. This will initially be in the form of Lynton & Barnstaple four wheeled open and closed vans, these will be available early this year to be followed by two bogie coaches later on. The goods stock will come in L&B grey and SR brown liveries and in addition there will be grey un-lettered versions for the freelance modeller. The coaches will be available in L&B red and white and SR olive green. They will be available from the F&WHR shops as soon as we have stock, keep an eye on the web site and Facebook for details.

In stock already is a new kit from Narrow Planet for the the RNAD 99hp Baguley-Drewry diesel to fit on the smooth running KATO 11-104 chassis. The kit and the chassis are available from the shop in Porthmadog and from the web shop. It is a mixed media kit with a basic body shell which is 3D printed with etched body panels etc to complete. It makes up easily into a nice looking modern diesel loco.
