The modeller is well served by commercially available kits and components. The range of these is constanty changing. The lists are offered as a best effort, but the Society cannot vouch for or guarantee their accuracy.
In addition, the Society has commissioned kits and components to complement commercial products. These are available at the prices shown below, from Ian Ford, 20 Windsor Road, Levenshulme, Manchester, M19 2EB. All cheques should be made payable to "Highland Railway Society". Postage shown below applies to UK only. Overseas orders will be charged at cost. Members receive a discount on these prices.
The Society's extensive collection of drawings is available to help modellers. Click here for the full list.
To assist modellers, two Research Indexes have been produced. These are large pdf files which can be downloaded to view, but this will take some time if you do not have a broadband connection. These files are scans from the original documents, so cannot be searched
