With many years experience in railway modelling, particularly 4mm P4
(18.83mm) scale, we are able to offer useful items for the specialist
Currently we have many items available with more being planned. With
the need for lots of coaching stock for our layout we are working on
developments for building accurate LMS coaching stock and we will
release these items when we have completed the development.
We have 2 types of wagon baseplate and we have various jigs and
components to assist in the manufacture and use of Alex Jackson
couplings. Recent additions are rail droppers for assisting in the wiring of
track and some nickel silver strips of metal which can be used for all sorts
of kit and scratchbuilding purposes.
Our wagon baseplates are etched plates that can be used as a solid
foundation upon which to build a wagon chassis using sprung w-irons.
They are available to suit wagon chassis up to 26 feet long. See the
baseplate page for more information.
In our Alex Jackson coupling range we have an etch based on the Graham
Turner bending jig which will help you make AJ Couplings easily and
accurately as well as our 180 jig which makes the production of the first
bend simple. We have also developed items to make the use of the hinged
version of the coupling a more simple and effective method.
Anyone who is interested in the use of the Alex Jackson Coupling would
be advised to purchase the book 'Alex Jackson - the man and the
coupling' by Dave Booth, Sid Stubbs, Tony Williams, Graham Turner and
friends. This book is published by the Scalefour Society and is available
direct from their website. More details on the AJ Coupling can also be
found on the MMRS Website under technical articles.
All of our items have been primarily produced to help the P4 Group of the
Manchester Model Railway Society make models more effectively but are
offered for sale to others to help them make models quicker and more
Recently we have added some 7mm Narrow Gauge items to our range.
