Hi As Phatbob has kindly mentioned, Grimy Times is reopening for shop customers tomorrow 16th June at 10am Our shop hours will be our normal hours ie- 10am - 5pm Tuesday to Saturday inclusive , closed Sunday and Monday. To comply with social distancing we can only have 2 customers in store at any one time or one family group. We are asking all customers without exception to use the available hand sanitiser upon entry and will be accepting contactless and usual card payments as well as cash. We look forward to seeing all our customers both old and new . Best wishes Steve
  2. Grimy Times Model Railways , following the government orders will be closed to visiting customers with immediate effect. However we will be offering a mail order service for shop items as well as weathered locos currently on the website. Our weathering service will carry on as normal with the exception that any order will have to be posted out rather than any customer collection. Please contact the shop on 01925 632209 between 10am and 4pm for any inquiries Alternatively email on:- [email protected] Many thanks Steve
  3. Great announcement !! upon release we will be offering pristine and weathered versions of 45022 Lytham St Annes as well as other renumbered and weathered versions!! I now know why they wouldn't let me commission one of the sealed beam Peaks a couple of years ago!
  4. Hi Everyone, The wait is over!! we have just been invoiced for all three versions of the class 90's as well as the required DCC chips so should be on the shelves tomorrow ! Regards Steve
  5. Grimy Times Model Railway Easter Sale Just to let everyone know that we are having an Easter Sale running from tomorrow Saturday 20/4 through to Saturday 27/4 inclusive.

  7. Many thanks for your kind remarks. Over the last three years the shop has really developed and we will update you with photos soon. In the meantime we have just added a new selection of over sixty weathered locomotives to the website. These can be viewed at: www.grimytimes.co.uk
  8. One little thing which seems to be overlooked, is the question of warranty repairs, as far as I can make out ( and could be wrong here ) is that for Hornby to repair under warranty the item in question has to be returned from the dealer from which the item was purchased , for which Hornby will have a record of such item being supplied to the retailer. Where does that leave the bargain hunters who buy off traders without overheads who source from the wholesaler? Bachmann have the same system in hand, if it's not purchased from an official dealer then it has no warranty.
  9. We received our Evening Stars today, great looking loco but was surprised that ,although etched name plates are supplied to fit, the loco doesn't have printed ones. I can imagine a few will get ruined by people trying to fit them as the loco doesn't quite look right without them. The livery is an excellent reproduction.
  10. We are getting our DRS 47s tomorrow, plenty of spare ones available. we should have both weathered and pristine available at Stafford exhibition this coming weekend also. Regards Steve
  11. If any left at Warley may get another as you cant have enough of a good thing !!!
  12. Tried to order over the phone but was advised to buy online, apparently selling very fast as I asked if they would have any for sale at Warley and they think they will all be gone at the rate they are selling. My very good lady has ordered me one for Xmas so the one I ordered will get renumbered after seeing what or if Hornby announce another red one next year. Coventry is favourite for the renumbering plus flashes
  13. I have thrown quite a few out this week too, only half full bunkers I will be supplying! too much detail to go to waste with a full load!
  14. That is the issue, it would really reduce the timespan of the layout and more importantly reduce how many Duchesses I could have on it !
