Thank you, John, Neil and the team. When I was doing UK G scale John was a superb source of stock and bits and always up for a chat on the phone. The next day delivery was always a delight and a shop and team that will be much missed for friendliness and reliability.

So Long and Thanks for All the Fish.

 

And thoughts go out to those employed there who may find it hard on a modest island to secure alternative employment.  A tough decision but, I am sure in the circumstances, the right one.

A real shame; thanks Track-Shack for being a trusted, quick turn round, and extremely competitive retailer over the years.  Good luck and very best wishes to those involved, and sympathies for your tragic loss.

Cannot believe what has happened. So sorry for the loss, both personal, and to us modellers.

 

Make the most of retirement, good luck and best wishes for the future.

How is the I.O.M. Postal service going to survive this?

 

Seriously,  the fantastic service will be a great miss. 
Best wishes to all of the staff.

Really saddened to hear this news on so many fronts. The loss of a partner is terrible and my thoughts are with all the family.

 

From a modelling perspective Track Shack were outstanding as supplier. The friendliness of everyone was credit to you all. Although they were always competitive on price, the quality of service and speed of delivery was something others should aspire to. How you managed to get product from the Isle of Man to the UK mainland so quickly to ensure next day delivery was a mystery to me.

 

You should all be very proud of what you achieved in such a short time.

 

Certainly a loss to the modelling supply chain.....

Very sad to here the news about Track Shack. I had only used them a couple of times,  and there service was second to none.

 

My condolences to the family, and best wishes to all those involved with Track Shack.

Fourteen years? I had no idea......:)
 

I thought it was much less than that but time passes so quickly once you have retired. Seems like only yesterday I was working, but that was 13 years ago......

 

Still doesn’t change the sentiment. You were all very good at what you did....:drink_mini:

Thanks Gordon, your (and everyone else's!) kind comments are gratefully received.

 

You have to remember we started with Garden railways and live steam, so were perhaps not on your radar back then before we moved in to also doing smaller scales.

I too am sorry to see Track Shack close but fully understand why. I have used them a lot this last year or so as I built the biggest layout I have done so far. Service was outstanding.

I tried to place orders with Track Shack for various items but they did not post to Ireland.  Shame really.

Very sadded to see this wonderful Isle of Man Manx business devasting announcement. I always try to support non UK businesses when I can so was moved to tears reading the statement so sad to see it cease trading in such tragic circumstance. Track Shack was very good I got a load of BR MK2E Hornby coaches from them as they were always excellent at having in stock what else was sold out to other retailers elsewhere. Their postage was excellent to the UK.
