in the last week
I purchased a bulk order and although communication was 100% apparent. I was informed of the items ordered that they had yet to receive and when they expected to have the full amount. I then received the full order within a couple of days and a note apologising for the delay. Overall great service

Ordered a few items of set track that I couldn't find anywhere else. I was a little worried after seeing the feedback on here but received everything yesterday. Aside from not really knowing the order status, everything was fine! Items were well packaged.

Strange way to run a business.I ordered a Bachmann loco on the 10th December 2023 that was shown as being in stock which was to be a Christmas present. I paid using PayPal and had confirmation that the order had been made.As the loco hadn't arrived by the 22nd December I gave them a ring. No one picked up. I waited until the 5th January and rang them again. No one picked up so I sent them an email. No response.By the 13th January having not received any communication from them I asked PayPal for a refund. I received the refund on the 20th January with no apology or explanation.A diabolical way to run a web based mail order business and a waste of peoples time.

Ordered just after Christmas as I couldn't find some Kato points controllers in my model room. They were available,a good price and promptly despatched. Very good and reliable service.
