  2. Afternoon all, Back in May 2020 we made the announcement of our first ever RTR project under the Ellis Clark Trains brand name, Finescale O Gauge Presflo wagons!

  3. Afternoon all, Originally, this loco/post came under the Darstaed forum area, however after a number of changes and updates (listed below), this model will now come under the Ellis Clark Trains brand name. Nothing has changed with the relationship between ourselves and Darstaed, as we will continue to work very closely on a number of different projects over the coming years. As you may or may not know, we operate with a very "hands-on" approach, acting on all feedback we receive, with the end goal of supplying the best possible product we can. Back in D
  4. Afternoon All, We're happy to announce another exclusive Darstaed project. May I present to you, The BR 63ft Mk1 Carflats This project is a little different to others, here's whats happening... These 63ft BR Mk1 Carflats will be constructed from the Darstaed Mk1 Mainline coach chassis and newly tooled bogies, the remaining construction is taking place in-house at Ellis Clark Trains, with a very limited amount being produced. The carflats will be available in 3 Liveries, including BR Bauxite, BR Blue & BR Blue ‘Motorail’ - all coming supplied with water slide transf
  5. Afternoon all, Been a while since I posted on this thread! It's just a quick one to let you all know that the Mk1 mainline re-run is now in stock. This also includes the new coach to the line-up, the BSO (Brake Second Open). Full list and picture of the BSO below. All the best, Ellis.
  6. Hi there, I'm happy to help here! It is a little fiddly, but once you've done it a couple of times you become a pro (and that's coming from me!). Essentially, you've done all the first steps correctly. What I would recomend once you have the roof off is to remove the black insulation tape (this was added to ensure no light escapes between coach sides and roof join). Then, undo all the small screws holding the PCB in place (best to have a small tray to put these in!). Two options from here: 1. you can unsolder the pick-up w
  7. Hi Clarky, Great nickname btw! Thank you very much - that means allot coming from some one whose worked on the real things! We've been working hard on this project and spent a lot of time at the NYM railway trying to catch the realism/feel! I myself am looking forward to showing samples of the 'simulated' teak finish! All the best, Ellis.
  8. Hi David, Thank you! We'd love to one day (Neil who works for us keeps bugging me to do EM scale stuff! :D). All the best, Ellis.
  9. Evening all, Hope you're all keeping well. Firstly, sorry for not updating everyone sooner regarding the Thompson project. The past few months have been a tad challenging, but have also given us time to revisit many areas of this project, among others. Essentially a few things have come from this. Firstly, and unfortunately, we are having to increase the RRP for these coaches. Secondly, the good news, we have taken more time to improve the design, features and finesse of these models, with the latest CAD images attached at the bottom of this message. The Price Inc
  10. Hi Rob, Thank you so much for pointing this out, we're on it! :). Will let you know when we have an update. All the best, Ellis.
  11. Afternoon all, After a few requests, we have managed to add the 1954 Shildon built presflos to the production run. They're now available for pre-order on the website, with updated chart and CAD image below :). All the best, Ellis.
  12. Hi Rob, Sorry! Although the satisfaction of completing a nice build (which your is) is always great! Have looked into your pre-order and sent an email to you. Likewise! The rabbit hole of Presflo wagons! I can't take too much credit, my CAD designer did the hard work in research and design and has done a truly fantastic job! These railway contractors never think about us modellers! All the best, Ellis.
  13. Afternoon all, Some exciting news! We are proud to present our first ever production under the Ellis Clark Trains brand name... the Presflo wagon in 1:43.5 Finescale O Gauge! These finely detailed wagons boast an impressive specification including… Super-fine detailing throughout Carefully researched and designed using original drawings and dimensions, cross referenced with pictures of original and rebuilt wagons. Super-fine pipework, handles and small detailed parts in plastic and metal Die-cast chassis Sprung buffers
  14. Hi Keith, Thank you for pointing this out. I must admit, we've been so focussed on adding to the online store that we have overlooked the Exhibitions page! We will update that this morning. There will also be a Covid19 updated post. All the best, Ellis.
