Thank you for visiting my website.
The pages give details of all available stock at this date. All previous web-pages are void, other than the list of 0-gauge spare parts. Please ensure you ‘re-load’ your page to ensure you are looking at the latest postings, but if you are reading this you are probably OK!
These web pages equate to my hard-copy List No. 103 issued July 2018.
I have deliberately not being acquiring much new stock over the past few months, hence these lists do not contain many new items, although in compiling the lists I have realised just how much has changed since the previous issue in December 2017 !
Hints and tips
You may find that an item has been sold or reserved prior to your e-mail, ‘phone call or letter. However, if you miss an item I may be able to compensate by advising you of recently-acquired items which are not yet listed.
Meetings for Hornby enthusiasts are now held throughout the British Isles, monthly or bi-monthly. .You would be most welcome at any of them if you are within travelling distance. Details are given in the HRCA magazine. Berkshire meetings are held on the 2nd. Wednesday of each month, at Mortimer, RG7 5EQ.
Although I no longer organise the renowned 'Reading Vintage' toy fair, this event is arguably THE BEST for vintage toys only. The next event will be held on Sunday 28th. October 2018. About 150 trading tables and many exhibitions are already booked.
The other major event in the South of England is that held at Sandown Park Racecourse. This caters for all classes and ages of toys, not just vintage.
Other recommended fairs which usually display a good variety of ‘vintage’ material (operating and for sale) are:
Beckenham, Kent (April), TCS Leicester (March and November), TCS summer event (August, this year at Stoke Mandeville), Alresford (June), Amersham (October),
allow time for me to deal with your orders. I employ no staff and can deal with one thing at one time only!
I try to despatch parcels within a few days of receipt of order/payment, but please allow up to 14 days before making a follow-up enquiry. Each premature enquiry tends to slow up the whole process!
Although I try to accommodate all enquiries, it would be appreciated if orders could be above £10.
The small print.........
The placing of an order against this list indicates your agreement with the Terms and Conditions of Sale. If you wish to consult them, a copy will be provided on request. Please make sure that you read and understand them from time to time.

Important change to my ‘Spare parts’ pages
I am changing the name of my ‘0-gauge spare parts’ business from ‘Somerlea Spares’ to ‘Old Tin Toy Train Parts’.
The website for spare parts will be ‘www.Old Tin Toy Train Parts.co.uk’ (secure website)
e-mail for spare parts: email@example.com (note: one o, 3 t’s and a p)
There will continue to be a link from ‘Maddocktoys’ to the new spares website.
I thank you all for your custom, whether you have 'followed' me for all of the past quarter of a century, or are a recent visitor,
I plan to revise the pages in December 2018, but will issue a Latest Stock’ page before then if my stock changes sufficiently.
My best wishes to you for the remainder of 2018.
