The New Home for Cambrian Models

After 44 years of setting up and running Cambrian Models Barry and Jean Parks have decided to semi retire and the business passed to Graham Taylor and Judy Stevenson on October 20th. The workshop has moved to Kent. The new online store on this site which trades under the name Cambrian Model Rail is now open. The link is on the left in the top menu and you can browse the catalogue, place orders and pay by credit or debit card.

It is our policy that items will only be shown as in stock if we physically have the designated number of bagged kits to despatch immediately. This is a change from the previous owners who made up kits and if necessary moulded new components as required to fulfil orders. Initial stock may be limited as it will take a couple of weeks to achieve full production of the simple kits and perhaps a bit longer for the more complicated ones. In the meantime our stockists are still holding supplies. Please bear with us in this time of transition. If you want a kit that is out of stock or there is insufficient quantity in stock for your needs please use the form on the contact page to let us know and we will use this information to prioritise production.

Our 4mm (1:76) Kits

These are plastic (polystyrene) kits which include underframes etc. & bogies (where needed). You will need wheels/bearings, transfers, couplings & paint to complete our kits. There are more details on the 4mm Kit Construction page.  Plastic buffers are included in all kits, however some newer kits have separate buffer body parts which make it easier to fit cast/sprung buffers. Our range covers a long period of railway history: from about 1900 to the present day – wagons such as C14 Sharks & C88 ASF-bogied Salmons are still in use in 2014 (some as Ospreys). If you are new to kit building, these kits with "one-piece" floors and underframe are the simplest to put together – C79, C84, C93, C96 and C97.

Our 16mm Narrow Gauge (1:19) Components

Plastic parts are injection moulded in polystyrene (usually medium grey colour). Some items, such as NA11 Centre Buffer/coupling and NA12 Buffers, have some metal parts.
