20-Jul-22: Slight delays on order fulfilment

Just had a short break  catching up with family post-Covid. First break since 2018 so was very nice despite the heat. I have a bit of a backlog in order (25) and emails (58) but will get back on schedule soon.

07-Jul-22: One out, four in!

It’s departures from Downing Street that are capturing the headlines today, but the really important news is that four more liveries of Hunslet diesel shunters are now available for members to buy. These are:

  • R0594 – Esso Red
  • R0595 – BP White
  • R0596 – BP Green
  • R0597 – CEGB Orange

They can now be purchased via the NGS Shop at Hunslet Industrial Shunter for £82 each (plus P&P).

28-Jun-22: New kits on the block.

And these will have to stand on blocks! Following the success of the kit 37b Storage Tank (NGSK0372) scenic item, we are trialling a similar release of Kit 70 as a pair of Van bodies to be used as storage sheds on farms and goods yards. Many of these saw longer life as storage sheds than they did in railway revenue earning service – and some are still about today. These are now available as Kit 70b Grounded Van Body Twin Pack (NGSK0701) at £1.50. The kit has two van bodies –  one with planked sides, one with plywood sides

21-Jun-22: Kit 50a war-well-come.

A welcome return to the NGS Shop for Kit 50a WD Warwell NGSK0500 back in stock and still priced at £11.05.

13-Jun-22: New kids on the block.

Today received the third shipment of Hunslets consisting of:

  • R0594 – Esso Red
  • R0595 – BP White
  • R0596 – BP Green
  • R0597 – CEGB Orange
  • R0599 – PA blue/yellow (only a few so far)

As for previous shipments:

IF YOU HAVE PRE-ORDERED, but not yet paid the balance – The Membership Secretary is currently sending out balance payment requests and instructions.

IF YOU HAVE PRE-ORDERED, and have paid the balance – You models will be dispatched over the next few weeks.

IF YOU HAVE NOT PRE-ORDERED – These locos will go on sale to members when the pre-orders have been dealt with. There are 300 of each except for the R0599 Port Authority livery, the bulk of which will be delivered later, along with the undecorated models.

These are NOT AVAILABLE for sale from the NGS Shop just yet.

Watch the NGS Website for further information.

08-Jun-22: Our tanks aren’t going anywhere.

But then they are not meant to. The experimental Kit 37b Storage Tank (NGSK0372) – a grounded fuel/chemical storage tank with bund walls – has been popular. We have a new production run now available at Kit 37b Storage Tank NGSK0372 at a mere £1.90.

 If you want a tanker on wheels, then Kit 37a TTA Chemical Tanker (NGSK0371) is still available at Kit 37a TTA Chemical Tanker NGSK0371 at £8.00

01-Jun-22: Folders back in the fold

Received today a big box of NGS Journal folders to keep your N Gauge Journals neat, tidy and win brownie points from domestic management. As usual these are bound in red with a gold NGS logo on the spine and can hold twelve editions – two years’ worth of the world’s best N gauge magazine. They come with a strip of gold date labels to apply to the spine. Available now from the NGS Shop at Journal Folder or Handbook Ringbinder  for £6.40 each.

Old news is good news!
