In my last email newsletter I mentioned that I was off to The International N gauge Show (TINGS) for a look round. I'm really glad that I made the trip as there were some fantastic layouts and it was good to speak to a few customers. I also managed to spend a while with Hiroshi Kato, the president of KATO who was present in support of Gaugemaster's KATO stand. Mr Kato was a pleasure to speak with, and he was keen to strengthen the ties between Train Trax UK and his offices in Japan in various ways. If you have any feedback about KATO products (Unitrack, trains, accessories or scenics) then do let me know and I can pass them on. If you have any questions I can probably answer them myself, but if not I should be able to get an answer for you - do get in touch.

KATO USA September Announcement
Earlier this week I got notification of New release N Scale ES44 "GEVO" Engines coming from Kato USA! 2023 will see various brand new Florida East Coast paint versions coming alongside new road number releases of UP, BNSF, CSX "Boxcar", CP, and CN engines! DC, DCC and Sound fitted are all available to pre-order now - see below. DCC Sound versions will only be available for pre-orders - do place your order soon (ie before October) if you want one of these.

KATO Japan announcements:
As mentioned last time, at the beginning of the month, the latest KATO Japan announcements came out for items being delivered in January-March next year. Many items open for pre-order, but if anything else on either of the two KATO 'posters' takes your fancy please let me know and I'll get them in at TrainTrax's normal discounted pricing. Some prices may be tweaked due to currency variations between now and release - I'll be in touch to confirm if anything changes by more than £5.

Model Railway Magic - second hand items
This is just a reminder that as well as Train Trax, I run 'Model Railway Magic' which buys and sells pre-owned models from all manufacturers and in all scales. I believe in recycling and finding new lives for older items. This is great for the environment and also for keeping prices low to allow those on low budgets to be included in ‘the hobby’. I can deal with collections large and small. If you have any items you don't want any more, get in touch and I'll give you the fairest price I can whilst taking on the risk and bother associated with selling online. Most items are sold via eBay here: .

Discount code - Thank you!
I hope all my customers agree that Train Trax offers the best pricing on KATO products in the UK, whilst also offering the best service. As a thank you for subscribing to this newsletter and your continuing support of Train Trax, I can currently offer an extra discount of 9% off until the end of September. Use the 'SEPT-9' coupon code at checkout. There is no minimum spend, and it can be used on sale items (but not pre-orders or items in the 'Just Arrived' category). This code is just for email subscribers - please don't share it with anyone else.

This weekend I'll again be heading for my local N Gauge Society meeting on Saturday, I hope to run some of the new arrivals and will probably share some video on social media in a few days time.

Kind regards,
