Postby Terrier » Mon Nov 21, 2011 10:17 pm

Hello everyone, I'm looking for a way to purchase a Union mills R-T-R Southern 700 Class, or rather my misses wants to get me one for christmas, i have suggested etc etc. i have had a fairly good search through tinterweb and other than an address and phone number for them where they make them on the Isle of Man, and a write up about some of the locos on sites like the N gauge Society and Southern Railway examples on another website, i simply can't find out how to go about buyig one of their delightful locomotives, i'm also considering a 0-8-0 perhaps early on next year. Apologies if this has been covered beforehand here in the N gauge section, but please, if anyone knows how to go about buying a Union Mills loco, can you furnish with 'how' :)

regards

Chris P

When I've ordered from Colin I've always phoned first to check what he has available. From that point on I've never waited more than 3 days for anything to arrive, and that includes when sending an order confirmation note and payment (Postal Order) to him via post. I find that emailing him with an order takes longer than the good old GPO, you can't guarantee that your email will actually reach him thanks to spam filters. Sometimes the old ways work the best :wink:
