The shop is closing down. Sunday the 18th of June 2017 is our last day for trading. After that we will still be supporting some exhibitions and conventions and working from home. So the best way to contact us after the 18th June is on the email address We have stopped ordering so if you have had someting on order and it hasn't come in by now, then it is not coming. As product runs out it will be discontinued.

We will continue most of the Strath Hobbies range and Rocky River range after the 18th June but from now all normal discounts have finished.

Sn3.5 Scale News:

Strath Hobbies now have six Sn3.5 loco kits, two railcar kits and a railcar trailer kit and over twenty two wagon kits available, most in stock. These are 1:64 (S) scale and because they are narrow gauge they run on normal HO/OO track.

The Sn3.5 NJ diesel loco kit has been released. It comes with decals for both CR and ANR, detail items and a mechanism and will sell for $349.00. The mechanism in these kits is a North Yard mech.  Body only kits (with details but no mech) are also available for $150.00.

The most recent wagon addition is the 1938 Vw van which was boggie exchanged across the gauges. The Vw kit comes with archbar bogies and sells for $60.00. We have also released the OBn open wagon kit.

As well as the completed kits, which all come with bogies, decals and detail items (everything except paint, glue and couplers), there are also several other kits in development which we should see soon, which include:

  • SAR Long Tom brake van
  • A range (at least 6) of coaches

As well as the kits we have developed a range of bogies in Sn3.5 which include fox (for the brake vans and horse box), bar frame (for some of the freight rolling stock) and both arch bar bogies with round and square axleboxes for rolling stock running in the later periods. These are available with spoke or disc wheels. Forty ton modern bogies have also been development. There is also a growing range of decals, which include versions of the 830's in SAR Mustard Pot, ANR green and gold, and Silverton red/white colours.
