Good news for wagon builders. You probably know that the Parkside range passed to Peco last year and for those of us working in EM or P4 we were left wondering what would happen to the wheel swap service that they used to offer.  Well is seems that Eileens Emporiam has come to our rescue.   Following is from their Facebook page;

“Since Peco took over the Parkside range, I became conscious that availability at Finescale shows and in particular with Wheel Swap to EM and 18.83 was going to be an issue. After badgering Peco very heavily they have finally decided to let me have an account (this was alluded to in March RM, but no names mentioned), so I am very pleased to report that Eileens Emporium will be stocking Parkside products.

Orders have now been placed with Peco for the complete range of 4mm kits and parts, all 2mm kits and selected 0 Gauge kits. Also ordered are suitable Gibson Wheels and requests in for relevant Transfers from Modelmaster.

The Parkside kits will be added to the website over the next few days and stock is expected around the middle of next week. The website listings will have options for wheel swap to EM and P4 as well as multi pack pricing for quantities of 4 and 10.

The Parkside range is large so it will take us some time to build up the stock levels up to those that we want to hold, so we strongly recommend pre-ordering for show collections with at least 2 week notice.”


Out and about in March

March sees the first exhibition for one of the now 3 layouts i am involved with. Calcutta Sidings 2 will be at Ally Pally this year.  This is Calcutta’s only appearance for 2018 so please stop by for a chat if you are going.


The upcoming shows page is currently up to date if you want to see what we are up to.


Finally I have limited stocks of lineside troughing back in stock. Unfortunately the cost from the etchers has nearly doubled since I last stocked up but if anyone needs any drop me an email.  http://www.p4newstreet.com/contact_me
