Metro-Ashbury Model Works
Narrow Gauge Rolling Stock & Fittings for Garden Railways
We assist in the design and prototyping of 15mm and 16mm : 1ft scale narrow gauge locomotives, carriages, wagons and fittings, with a particular focus on Isle of Man Railway models.
Over the past few years we have been very pleased to work with Accucraft UK and Trackshack IOM in bringing to market a number of products for the garden railway enthusiast, and to undertake and supply limited edition conversions and livery changes for customers.
Products In Development
We are currently developing further items of Isle of Man Railway rolling stock in 15mm scale / 45mm gauge for release by ourselves as Limited Editions in both 'ready to run' and kit form, with cast resin bodies and scale IMR pattern fittings predominantly diecast but some whitemetal.
The wagon bodies have an exceptional level of detail reproduced in miniature, including bolts, nuts, washers, metal plates and even the wood grain!
IMR 'H' 3-plank Open Wagon - design and patterns completed. Expected first release in 2021.
IMR 'K' Open-top Cattle Wagon - design and patterns completed.
IMR Fish Wagon 3 - design and patterns completed.
IMR Half Luggage Brake Third Carriage - design completed.
Our scale models and fittings are intended only for adult model makers and adult model collectors. They are NOT suitable for children because of small parts which can present a choking hazard. Some of the components have functional sharp edges or points and should be handled with care.
Castings and mouldings included within our kits require trimming, drilling and/or preparing prior to painting, varnishing and assembly. Glue, paints, varnishes and modelmaking tools are required to complete our kits but are NOT included in our kits or supplied by us.
