Just a quick note to pass our thanks to the many customers who came to see us at Warley, we know at times it was so busy we couldn’t get to talk to everyone, but we had a really good weekend and we hope you did too. This week we have been busy replenishing stock for our last two shows this year, Wakefield and Wigan.
As mentioned above this weekend we are at the Wakefield show, hosted by the Wakefield Railway Modellers Society.
Thornes Park Athletic Stadium,
Do come and see us there

Today we’re pleased to show some of our recent etches in our nameplates and depot plaques range. These are all measured from the actual locomotive nameplates themselves as we pride ourselves in ensuring the products we sell are of the highest quality.
7mm, 4mm, 2mm Northern Belle Nameplates
Both Pullman liveried class 47’s, Solway Princess and Galloway Princess are available ex stock across the 7mm, 4mm, and 2mm scales, and are some of our best nameplates yet. The full color crests on these plates are decals, which give a superb rendition of these unique nameplates.
7mm, 4mm Fragonset Plaques
Next up is the iconic Fragonset Dragon available in both 7mm and 4mm scale, really showing the quality achieveable with our stainless steel etches.
7mm Crewe Depot Plaque
We’ve also just finished the complete range of depot plaques in 7mm scale. Whichever depot you wish to represent on your locomotive in either 7mm or 4mm scale, we are able to supply suitable plaques from stock. Like our nameplates above, these too have been measured from the actual depot plaques to ensure the accuracy and authenticity we strive for.
We continue development in our laserglaze range. This week we have completed the tooling for the Hornby 08/09 replacement glazing, which covers the early and late cab door variants. The later door having rounded corners to the window frames. These are ex-stock and are on the stand at Warley. In development tooling are the replacement cab windows for the Bachmann 08/09 which we hope to release in the run up to the christmas period.
Don’t forget our ‘Heritage’ laserglaze range, which covers the Bachmann high and low cab GWR pannier tanks, and our most recent releases of brake van glazing for the Bachmann GWR Toad and the Hornby LMS/BR 20T brake van. Development is underway in the Heritage range of other coaching and parcels stock, and we will post updates here in due course.
Finally this weekend is the Warley show at the NEC and we are there, stand C12. Please come and say hello, we hope to meet both new and existing customers over the weekend.

Bachmann 08 Laserglaze Test
Its been a couple of weeks since our last update and we are now into the very busy winter season with shows almost every weekend. One of our next laser cut glazing replacement kits is for the Bachmann 4mm/OO 08 shunter which will complement the previously released kit for Hornby’s model. The image above is the first test shot and we anticipate release in the next week or so, possibly in time for the Warley show at the NEC. There will be a further update this week with news of Extreme Etching releases including some namepletes we’re particularly proud of and a new item for the Heritage laser cut glasing range. This weekend we are at the Spalding show, please see the show guide for more details, and we look forward to seeing you there.
