Welcome to the website of MODEL ROADS & TRAMWAYS.
The business was formed in 1990 by two active modellers then based in Bedfordshire, England, exhibiting a layout based on Blackpool seafront with working trams, illuminations etc. and utilising the Faller Car System, whereby buses, lorries, cars and vans etc. move under their own power following a buried guide wire in the roadway.
Following many enquiries as to where the various items used on the layout could be obtained, it was decided to form the business known as 'Model Roads & Tramways'.
After a time, one of the partners moved to the Blackpool area, which gave us the opportunity to attend model shows with a trade stand in that location, as well as around Bedford and the surrounding area.
We offer a mail order service, attend exhibitions and shows, and have a retail presence within St. Neots Emporium, 13 Fishers Yard, St. Neots, Cambs. PE19 2AG (Monday - Saturday 9.30am - 5pm) with mainly 1/76 and 1/87 scale (OO/HO) vehicles, railway items and accessories.
Also at The Antiques Centre at Olney, 13 Osborns Court. Olney, Bucks. MK46 4LA (Tuesday - Saturday 10.00am - 5.00pm, Sunday 11.00am - 4.00pm) with mainly 1/76 (OO) and 1/43 (O) scale vehicles, specialising in the Aston Martin marque.
We have added a new web page www.miniatureairports.co.uk which we hope to have up and running soon, combining Railways, Trams and Motor Vehicles with Aircraft and Airports. If you would like more information on this then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
