…vintage trains & toys.

 

You have arrived at the place that tells the story of me and my trains & toys. It’s the story of how I grew up always making things, experimenting, researching and learning, figuring out solutions to problems and honing skills.

In the tradition of many a model railway, this website is a work in progress and will be added to from time to time. It will probably never be finished, but what the heck?

You are invited to explore these pages to learn about vintage model railways and perhaps be inspired to start a collection of your own.

YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO...

... browse the Vintage Trains & Toy Store. On offer is a selection of quality items lovingly restored and made to work again. You might just find something you like here.»
