Hi all
Went along yesterday afternoon, cant wait to go back, staff were friendly and helpfull, shop is full of everything you might need. On the 2nd hand side I found a good selection although the engines in the cabinet were a tad expensive. Now I know what the shop is like I will be going back and spending longer there, its worth the 80 mile round trip and it did make a change actually looking through stock rather than pages on a website.

Cheers Dave

I do find it very surprising that so many model shops don't have websites, with the economy the way it is you would think they would want to increase their sales potential and you can have a very simple site designed for a few hundred pounds these days.

Perhaps an opportunity for someone on here with the right skills, design a simple website for model shops (essentially an online catalogue that the owner can update) and flog it to all the model shops that don't have websites, for a few hundred quid a time  ;D

Hi all!

I am new to the N Gauge forum, and this is my first post - but I just had to add my recommendation for John Duttfield!

I used to live in Essex and work in Chelmsford, and have spent a fair bit of money at Duttfield’s (Although not as much as they may have liked me to spend with them!  ;D ) and have always found them very friendly and helpful!  Also, having bought loco's from them, they do something that I know some people complain that other shops don't do - they test run the loco for you, and this includes Dapol loco's too!  I bought my LNER B17 box set when they were first released, and they oiled it first and then ran it for me, so we could both see it working!

All in all they are great and I would recommend that anyone in the area pays them a visit!  :thumbsup:  I can't often as I would like now as I moved from Essex to Wiltshire.  :(
