Our class 90's arrived a few days ago. DCC Chips also in stock.32-612.jpg.d007eacadf935a154722c543312595fd.jpg32-611.jpg.27bd6a1e878578a54552a4924c11f0f6.jpgIMG_3726.JPG.a3115fa2d421384c198fa6f2168b0a52.JPG

 

Also, if any of our customers is planning to come and visit us at the Bakewell Exhibition, we sadly will not be there. After being invited to attend by the exhibition manager during my visit last year, to replace a retiring trader, they appear to have "forgotten" all about us and claim to no longer have the space. As a result, we will be open as normal that weekend.

Just to update those RMWeb members who are customers of A2B Model Railways. 

 

I will be reducing the weekday opening hours for the next two weeks (week commencing 16th and 23rd March). There are two reasons for this:

 

1) Due to the recent government advice I feel that reduced opening hours will suit the levels of visitors to Matlock Bath.

2) The new hours will allow me to undertake the school run for our foster child and remove the need for my wife to travel on public transport.

 

These hours should still cover our peak weekday hours of trading. We will be open:

 

Tuesday 10.00am - 3.00pm

Thursday 10.00am - 2.00pm

Friday.      10.00am - 2.00pm

Saturday. 10.30am - 5.00pm.

 

Vigilant cleaning of all doors, shelves and card machines will be regularly undertaken to make the shop as safe to visit as possible. 

 

For those who do not want to venture out  - a reminder that I offer free postage on most online orders. I am also offering a SKYPE service allowing face to face interaction without visiting the shop. (contact details on the website)

CORONA VIRUS UPDATE

 

Following this weekend's madness in Matlock Bath I have made the difficult decision to close the doors of the shop for the time being. The level of people coming into Matlock Bath this weekend has been ridiculous considering the latest government advice. I feel that remaining open as a physical shop would be irresponsible at this present moment.

it is mad isn’t? I was closed yesterday as I normally am at this time of year but saw the photos everybody from the town was sharing. Many retailers in the area took the decision to close after yesterday’s madness.

This situation was repeated in many areas all over the UK this weekend.Matlock Bath is a magnet for bikers of all descriptions.Yesterday was no exception.The message is either not getting through or is being ignored in pursuit of personal recreation. Annoyingly,this arrogant lunacy did not receive a single mention on last night’s BBC 10:00 News.

Why not,as it was widely reported on the BBC News App with angry contributions from Matlock Bath residents ? You really have tear your hair in anger and frustration.

The analogy is of Nero fiddling while Rome burns.We are implored not to travel.Such behaviour is despicable and makes a mockery of the flag waving chauvinistic pride as we left the EU.

Problem is if you live in a tourist areas you still may need to walk your dog and get groceries its unfair of these idiots to come to there areas and potentially bring the infection. 

The second homers should also go home as the health service is geared up for indigenous residents rather than tourists

Having used Trackshack  very successfully as my main go to shop over several years prior to their sad closure  I had need to find a similar supplier so gave A2B Model Railways a go. 

I have to say I was not disappointed, the level of pricing and quality of service was excellent my being kept informed of the progress of the web site  purchase resulting in free delivery the following day.   

Needless to say my future purchases will be made from the A2B model shop.
