2-6-4 Minitrix in Howes models...
« on: July 04, 2018, 10:46:06 am »
I've just popped into Kidlington to get some materials for a job, so whilst on the trading estate I popped into Howes Models. They don't do N gauge stuff, some 00, some 0 and a lot of RC vehicles, but they do sell a few second-hand bits.

I noticed a 'Minitrix Miniatures' 2-6-4 for sale in (I think) lined BR black, they were asking £39.95. Sorry I haven't got a pic, but went in without my phone. They also had a few N gauge coaches in the cabinet. Just thought I'd mention it in case anyone was interested.

FYI they have some general bits and bobs, wire, brass rod/strip, plasticard, small switches, cork sheet etc.

Information ends, as you were.

 :D

Hold on, brain freeze, or it may have been a Wren Micromodels one...

There was no british N 2-6-4 by Minitrix, but yes there was the old Lima/Wrenn Micromodel - which I wouldn't pay £40 for as it was awful.

Nope, definitely 2-6-4, had a look at their website and it's a Wren.

If it says Wren on the box, then yes it is the Lima model inside...
