Scottish Garden Railways
Large scale trains in YOUR garden or home
Scotlands first Garden Train specialist
shows are now cancelled over the next few months and we
are all more or less confined to the house. But hopefully
all the staff will be able to get busy on their railways
as the weather improves. If there is anything you need,
just ask, I might just have it. As long as I don't catch
anything I should still be able to ship from my local
Post Office/food shop.
If you are passing during your statutary exercise or shopping trip you can collect anything from the front of the house - I will leave it out - Keep well Sandy
By the way
Secondhand always wanted. Mainly G scale but other scales considered
|This could be your garden - Accucraft live steam Canadian Royal Hudson and six matching coaches - goes as well as it looks|
