A-Part Toys & Models
We were established as a family business in the late 1970’s, specialising in N Gauge trains. A change of ownership, still within the family, in 1994, resulted in a move into more areas of modelling interest, i.e. OO, HO and several other sundry scales and sizes. Then in 2005 we added our ranges of G gauge garden railway products. All these are available as models of British, American and Continental railways.
