Dear Robin

I've had the opportunity to 'rail test' the boards this evening. They are exactly what I required, hold together well with no movement & are perfect for running a decent length outside circuit of O gauge solid steel track & and a double track inner circuit. Just what I had hoped for and perfect for transporting between events. They even fit into the back of a VW Golf!

Thank you again for your time, consideration and skill in assembling them for me. I'd be delighted to recommend them to the HRCA membership.

Regards as ever

I commissioned layout number 22 from the Hornby Book of Track Plans - this is the one with the turntable used as a through running track. From start to finish, including Robin sourcing some electric points and switches for me ,only took about 4 weeks. Usually I would have expected a build time of several months. I was even given a choice of baseboard colour and supplied with 3 trestles on which to erect the layout.
The work was all done to a very high standard and the wiring and controls were explained to me in great detail by Robin on collection, and in the 3 months I have been using this it has performed faultlessly.
I would not hesitate to recommend this service to anyone who like me lacks either the time or the necessary carpentry/electrical skills, and actually wants to run some trains!

Best wishes

Hi Robin,

You provided reliable and personal service combined with excellent workmanship. I was impressed with their attention to detail and delighted with the results.

For your info. I have extended the original layout to an 'L' shape and even now could do with more room in my attic.....
Best wishes to you and your wife.

Hi Robin,

Yes, the baseboards are home to a gradually expanding oo gauge layout and are perfect for the purpose.

Points that struck me about my dealings with you were: -
- you were flexible in working with us to produce a non-standard design.
- when the baseboards arrived, they fitted perfectly and gave my son an ideal surface to use for setting up his layout - much better than using a trackmat on the lounge carpet!
- the construction is sturdy and there are no uneven surfaces where the baseboards meet.
- you delivered when you said you would.

Oh and I'm still planning to ask you to quote when I get round to designing an O gauge layout - hopefully this summer.

Hope this will do for you.

Best wishes,

Dear Robin, 
I've been using your baseboards for 10 months now and I am very pleased with them and the service you provide. After many years of trying to make my own I now realise I should have gone to someone like yourself a long time ago!  All the best with your new venture.

Dear Robin, 
I am delighted with the baseboard. The quality is superb and the design combines strength with lightness. I retired from Chiltern Railways earlier this year and so now have the time to construct the exhibition layout for which the baseboard is intended. I hope to have the layout operational for the Menstrie meeting in September. I’ll let you have some photographs then.
Hope that this helps,
Kind regards
