Visited them today for possibly the last time, having been a regular for 34 years. Kim says that due to very low stock the shop will likely close its doors for the last time, during next week. I picked up 3 maroon Bachmann birdcage coaches for a very good price, I think Kim gave me a final send off. The shop is looking very bare now. Kim is hoping that the Bachmann 009 Baldwins will arrive before the shop closes, to supply pre order customers.

Scograil in Ipswich has had a recent change with the European railways carrying on, but ownership of the British model railway division becoming Orwell Model Railways. Hope to pop and take a look at some point.
Visit to John Dutfield at Chelmsford today, confirmed they're alive and well. Love wandering around. Another one well worth a visit.
Really sparse these days in Essex/Suffolk for model shops, compared to some years ago.
