Currently conducting a Stocktake and getting the Web Pages up to date to reflect what we actually have in stock - Web Pages now updated and current up to all manufacturers starting with 'L'..... still a way to go.....
Back from Tasmania and had a good holiday and a great Launceston Model Railway Show - well worth the trip and a great bunch of people over there.  Now to get on with business and getting rid of some stock - so look out for some Specials coming up over the next weeks
A few Good Deals on our Specials page including some slightly damaged Micro Engineering Flex Track (missing ties / sleepers and a few bent ends - but 80 - 90% all good) out at 50% discount.  Check them out on our Specials Page

We are off to the Launceston Model Railway Show being held over the October 14/15 weekend.  Looking forward to that and hoping to catch up with a few of you there (noting this will be our last show !!)  So again I will NOT be available for a few days later this month (between 9th and 30th October), having a bit of a Tassie holiday as well.  I may be able to respond to a few emails but no orders will get processed in this timeframe.  So please be patient as I will be back in November.................

Well the time has finally come.  We have decided to close The Railcar after 23 busy years.  We have attended many shows, met many people and enjoyed the whole experience but, it is finally time to move on to other things (like retirement and my own On3 railroad).

We will do this over the next 9 months or so.  The Railcar will continue to trade as normal for the next few months - so we will still order items in as required for customers (here's your chance to get those things you really need) and then we will wind down over the following months until the end of the year.  We will be attending one more Show - the Launceston Model Railway Show in October.....But don't worry - plenty of time to go and we still want your business.....so get those orders in !!!!!!!!!

If you need some inspiration, or just want to see some exquisite modeling - check out the link to the Australian Narrow Gauge Convention that was recently held in Victoria - www.modvid.com.au/html/body_aussie_ng_convention_2017.html . Just beautiful stuff
Looks like the 2017 On30 Annuals are finally on the way - so should be here in the next 10 or so days.  I have limited numbers - some are already taken, but let me know if you want one and I'll put your name on it.................

Just a quick update to let you know we will be away at the Australian Narrow Gauge Convention this Easter Weekend.  Hope to see some of you there and for those not attending we may be a bit slow in responding to emails etc, as we will be gone for about a week.  But rest assured, I will get back to you on our return......
