The purchase of a SLA 3D printer now allows most of the intended wagon kits to be produced in-house. These will use the same basic design as used for the resin kits already produced. Other products are inline for manufacturing including wheels and coach bogies.
New for November
4mm & 7mm Etched Brass Kits
Many of the etched kits formerly produced under the Bill Bedford label are in the process of being updated and enhanced. These will be added to these pages a the updates are done. They will still be made to order, but new systems have been put in place that means that the delivery can be brought down to about 3 weeks initially. It is intended to add new wagons, NPCS, and coach side etches in the coming months with full coach kits following later.
Please read the Terms of Business page before ordering.
The following lists have an 'availability' field with the following meanings:
- In Preparation:
- The kit is not yet in production and the final price will not have been set.
- Extended Delivery:
- The kit has been in production, but the tooling needs re-factoring and printing
- 28 Delivery:
- The kit is either in stock or can be etched within a short time.
Note that the resin kits are made in batches of between 40 and 50. Once the original batch has sold it could be some time before a second one is done.

What is this "Mousa" you ask?
Well, it is an island in Shetland, almost as far away from Railways as it is possible to get and still be in the UK. Here's a web site that will tell you almost everything about it
Ohh, and it's pronounced 'moosa'
