August 2023 News from Train Trax UK


Summer is a quieter time for many modellers, so you'd think we'd be able to put out feet up a bit at Train Trax HQ. However, there's been plenty going on.

There have been two fairly recent annoucements from Kato USA. All available to pre-order now, with arrivals expected around the start of next year. See pictures below.

  • Two Chicago MP26PH locos in DC and DCC, with new Metra paint schemes and re-issued coach sets.
  • Two EMD E8 locos in Amtrak Phase I livery, and 4316 in the 'Day One' livery, both in DC or DCC, plus a re-release of an interesting eight car set of coaches for the Amtrak 'Rainbow' Era.

There's also been a lot of arrivals from KatoUSA. See the 'Latest Arrivals' section.

We've begun to prepare for our debut at 'The International N gauge Show' (TINGS).  It's tricky to know what items to take along with us as the stand is smaller than HQ so we can't take everything. Let us know in plenty of time if there's anything in partular you fancy a look at and we'll include it. You will also be able to pick-up orders at the show if pre-booked.

As mentioned last time, we've been improving the photographs that appear on the website. These have now also been updated on our ebay shop. We'd still love to know what other photos or information would be most useful. Do you have any other ideas for how we can improve the website? Get in touch

Our normal target is to despatch same working day (for order places before 1pm-ish), but deliveries may be slower than normal for the next few weeks, as it's the school summer holidays. Please allow for orders to be shipped 2-3 days after ordering. Thanks for your patience!

Best wishes,
