DAVID GEEN MODEL RAILWAY KITS RETIREMENT


Recommended Posts

Official Notice from David

 

 

 

As many of you are no doubt aware, I have been looking to retire from trading as DAVID GEEN MODEL RAILWAY KITS for some time. This has become a greater priority with the continued health issues with my wife Dorothy. I had hoped to make Expo, the EM Gauge Society exhibition at Bracknell, my last show, but regrettably, this is no longer possible, and I will not be able attend any further shows.

 

In the coming weeks, as time permits, I will endeavour to complete existing orders where I can, but once this is done, we will be able to see what stock is left for those who have enquired in the past weeks. I would ask all who pre-ordered for delivery at Expo to get in touch to re-affirm their orders.

 

We hope that the business will continue, and once the existing orders have been cleared, I can direct my time to securing the future for the existing range.

 

Dorothy and I would like to thank friends, old and new, who have been very supportive, especially in recent difficult times and hope you have been able to enjoy the range. We look forward to meeting up with many of you at various future events, when we can enjoy being the other side of the counter.

 

Dorothy & David Geen

Very best wishes to you both for a long and happy retirement.

Had been hoping to order some kits this year - looks like I have missed the boat.

I think that we already have a thread for this.

 

I doubt that you have "missed the boat". Given the excellent reputation of this range, I am sure someone will want to take it on.

Does anybody know if the range was taken on by someone else?

 

regards

No. The wagons and coach range is still with David. The Michel range is back with Pete Waterman.

 

David is still clearing some back orders where he can, placed prior to the final deadline.

Is David still trading? I did send an email, prior to sending an order, but have not had a reply.

My last contact with David, was a couple of weeks ago and he was heading off for pre-op tests, so presumably he may be in hospital.

thank you for your replies. Wishing David and his wife all the best. Did he have any luck finding a buyer for the business?

He was at Hartlepool Show on Saturday, but I didn't see him so can't report in any more detail.

He lasted an hour before going home.Still a bit sore after an opp. I was with him most of Sunday. He is sending out outstanding orders as and when he can. Several orders ready for packing. I dropped one off at Wigan for a customer so the list is going down.

 

I shall be over with him next week. I will see how much the list has gone down.

I don't know if anything can be done about this but my bookmark for the David Geen website now takes me to a site selling shoes. It still purports to be 'David Geen', so I suspect that it is a scam.

The site has been hijacked. David is aware but has not been able to get the provider to do anything about it.

Hi, does anyone know what is happening with the NER kits? Was in touch regarding acquiring some and David said he’d get back to me but nothing since March. If nothing else hoping to get hold of a couple of NER round door coal hoppers

Health issues with David and his wife have taken over his life. The model side very much a low priority. If you let me know the kit numbers, I will check if there is stock available.

I am aware of the situation with David Green, I hope things get improve for him. I have built a number of his kits in the past, I am presently building his lswr/Sr 10t bolster wagons diagram 1594

Kit number s/011 one of the buffer beams is missing. Wondered if anyone could help.

Is there any recent news about Mr Geen's kits being made available again under new ownership?

I've had a gander but couldn't see anything recent.

 

Cheers
