About Us

Since taking over the business from the late John McWilliams in 2008 we (Simon, Viv and Hector) have introduced many new items. Castings we have available include many for the pre-grouping companies as well as the four post 1923 companies. We have also introduced the "Reynald Range", details about this are below.

The medium used for these castings includes brass, nickle silver, bronze and white metal. The white metal casting is done “in house” using high quality metal that gives a good surface finish as well as good detail reproduction. To help identify the white metal castings in the range the letter “W” appears as a suffix to the normal identity code.

We are very fortunate that some of our castings use patterns made by some of the most renowned model makers in our hobby.

Simon has built a number of models over the years and on the Commission Built Models page are some photos of models that he has made. One of these is the Stirling Single, which was scratch built to commission. Some castings from this loco can be found under the Hobbyhorse GNR section.

Future plans
Our plans for the future are to expand the Hobbyhorse and Reynald Range,  using patterns that John McWilliams did not use and also new patterns from Tony Reynalds,  – so watch this space as they say!

Any future models Simon makes will also bring new castings in to the range so we look forward to offering them on the website in due course.
