I have now sold out of Mashima motors and regrettably unable to obtain any more. I am looking into suitable alternatives.
We now supply several LNWR wagons formerly in Nick Easton’s BIWO range. Now supplied as complete kits, these are; Diag 77A Trolley wagon, Diag 82 Boiler trolley, Diag 97 Platform trolley, and Diag 105/106. This last kit will build either the D105 four wheel boiler trolley or the D106 Chemical pan trolley.
GNR/LNER Q1 and Q2 kits. These kits were developed by Frank Davies for the Shipley MRS Clayton project, as featured in MRJ. The build also has a blog on RMWeb. The kits are beautifully designed, and etched in brass and nickel silver with optional parts to build inside valve gear, which can be made to work if required. Castings are mainly in brass.

MR Railmotor. Etched body in 12 thou brass, it is designed to be built in small sections which will help with painting and lining, which then bolt onto the floor unit. The power bogie has full outside walschaerts valve gear and is etched in nickel silver, so we have included lots of spare parts! The kit will include cast nickle silver crossheads to simplify assembly.
