Over the years, Dave Walker has built more than 1000 locomotives from various prototypes, from pre-group UK outline to modern image American and European diesel and electric locos.
Our locomotives are built to your specification. If you want a particular locomotive from a specific time period, weathered or ex-works, subject to certain information being available, we can build it for you.
Our locomotives are of all metal construction, soldered and bolted together with no adhesives used except for putting glazing in! Models are produced from our own artwork and patterns, using photo-etching, profile milling and lost wax casting. Although we can build live steam models, we prefer to concentrate on electric powered models for greater detail. This can be 12v track powered as in the smaller scales, or radio controlled with on board power.
