About

RedgateModels was set up as a means to build up our own collection for our sons.

Everyone involved has a genuine enthusiasm for Tri-ang / Hornby and all other forms of model railways —we are collectors ourselves!

As things are run from our home, we mainly deal on the internet and by mail order, although personal callers are welcome (call first to make sure we’re in). A friendly chat and a cup of tea is always on offer.

Welcome to the Redgate Models website. We are dedicated to Tri-ang and Hornby model railways, that were ‘Made in England’. Since moving into the world of DCC in 2006 all aspects of digital control have moved to the fore.

Have a look at our service list, browse our items for sale. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. We will always try to source anything that you want/need to build your collection or keep old friends running, be that under traditional DC control or DCC.

We support the original ideal of the Tri-ang factory—that of providing a first class service, with products that are affordable and robust. Model railways should be enjoyed by all ages, not locked away, ‘do not touch’. So let your child/grandchild play happily and if something should go wrong, we will always be available to help put it right!
