Closure Update 12/08/2020

SBt Developments will cease trading as planned on October 26th 2020. However the online shop will remain open indeffinately while stock is cleared, as will spare parts and customer service enquiries will still be handled and accepted. 

Going forward.

I will then revert back to a modeller and this site will be ammended as the layout(s) and projects progress with details for exhibition organisers etc. 

I'm hoping my new book 'Playing Trains', recounting the highs and lows of my 25 years designing, developing and  trading will be published in time for Xmas 2020. This has been written and is being finalised as I post. 

Subject to day job requirements some new road vehicles may be released before then and will be available through 2021 until stock is exhausted.

My private collection of models will of course need to be extended and it is likely I may have some spare to sell off to interested parties. These will be advertised on social media and placed in my online shop as and when.

I am planning to appear at the MIOG event in March 2021 with both a small work in progress layout/diroma a sales stand area subject to confirmation, where any old or spare stock will be available for purchase.
