    Default York Model Rail shop in York UK

    Any members here ever ordered from a UK based company named York Model Rail?

    If you’ve had business with them, if you’d care to comment on prices, quality, shipping times, etc. I’d be more than welcome to hear them all. Good, bad, indifferent.

    TIA

    Can't recall if I ever ordered anything from them , but I'm pretty sure I didn't because of the 1:148 scale , I've had a couple of 1:148 scale structures from another British site and won't use them on my layout because they are just too big . Smaller wouldn't be a problem , just put them in the background , but larger scale doesn't go anywhere without looking wrong.
    As long as I can model in N-scale, I know I'm not old

    Thank you. Yes, I’m well aware of the scale difference. Not going to make a difference for what I’m looking at.
    A vendor at the last train show I attended had some stained glass acetate in a church’s windows, looked very nice.
    He replied that it came from York Model Rail.

    I live about 5 miles from their unit, they have been around for quite a while and have a stand at some of the shows, their work is very good and never heard any complaints, the model railway stuff is a side shoot of their main business of commercial model makers.
