Eileens Emporium Newsletter October 2018

Postby derekrussan » Mon Oct 01, 2018 4:05 pm

The autumn has arrived and the show season has well and truly begun. We have lots of new products for you to enjoy and some important show changes to take note of.


We now have in stock the new Functional 00 Point Rodding range from DCC Concepts. This is a bit over scale for finescale enthusiasts, but robust enough for the job in hand. Our current stocks are limited but can easily be topped up. We have also added multi packs of DCC Concepts point motors, some of their fine wire strippers, weathering powders and other assorted items. DCC Concepts products feature in our special offer this month.

We are pleased to say the availability of Cambrian Kits has improved. At the time of writing about 90% are in stock. We have now had deliveries of all items, but some have again sold out at source.

We now have in stock Wills plastic sheets covering Brick Stone etc as an alternative to Slaters and South Eastern Finecast.

Peco have commissioned Transfers from Modelmasters for all the 4mm kits. We have these on the website and most are in stock. Peco are starting to put these in the kits but are not forthcoming as to which ones when, it seems to be as new stock is packed. We will try to keep the website up to date by showing which kits have the transfers, but you can check with us for info on the current status of specific stock items.

These transfers are designed to be one sheet per wagon for BR livery (and GW on some wagons). We are still stocking the original MM8xxx series of transfers which typically have enough for more than one wagon.

We are continuing to expand our stock of the HMRS range of transfers that we stock. We have also expanded the range of Springside lamps.

By popular demand, we now have in stock vacuum formed architectural sheets from South Eastern Finecast. We are still waiting for some samples so that we can take decent photos to illustrate these products.

To conclude what seems a never ending list of new products, we are also stocking many of the Springside detailing parts.


We are continuing to develop the new exhibition stand. The changes are happening progressively. We will have more open space at one end of the stand and many more products displayed on vertical racking. You may have to look wider than usual to find things. We hope you like it and will look forward to hearing your feedback.


We regret that we are at present unable to supply Phosphoric Acid flux. This excellent product was manufactured by Barrie Stevenson who sadly passed away earlier this year. Another manufacturer has take over the formula, but not made any as of yet. We are hoping this will be resolved within a few weeks.


We are offering 10% off all DCC Concepts products until midnight (GMT) 31 October 2018. This applies to all products under the DCC Concepts category on our website. Simply put the coupon code DCCC in the Coupon box on checkout. If you want any of their items that are not on our website, these can be included in the offer, please contact us for details on how we can do this.


The Festival or Railway Modelling - Peterborough has changed dates from last year and is now on 8/9 December 2018.

We will not be attending the Great Electric Train Show this year. We apologise to customers who expect to find us there but it is entirely outside of our control.

We have the usual clash with Manchester and Reading in December. We will take the 4mm Kits and Short Metal Sections to Manchester only and 500mm Long Metal Sections and Plastruct to Reading only.

We will for the first time be attending the Thornbury Show, this is the small show in the village, not the large event at the leisure centre.


Our full policy statement is on the website, but broadly:

We treat your personal data with the respect it deserves.

We do not keep credit card details for longer than necessary. Web orders use third party payment processing services (currently Paypal and Worldpay) and Card data is not received or retained by us.

This is an opt in newsletter, all recipients in some form requested to be sent this. There is an unsubscribe link at the bottom.

We do not sell, give or otherwise pass on any customer details other than as needed to satisfy the order.

Full details of all our other products are on our website.

Derek, Anita, Matt and Judith.
