If you’re one of the dedicated community of British gauge 0 railway modellers Walsall Model Industries has a range of products you need to know about. Our company began half a century ago producing fine quality cast wheels for 0 scale locomotives and rolling stock, and since then we have maintained our traditional production methods and never allowed our standards to slip. Since those early days, our range has expanded to include various mechanical parts and complete kits, which offer unmatched compatibility. Among established gauge 0 railway modellers Walsall Model Industries products have a fine reputation for consistency and reliability, a testament to the lengths we go to to ensure that every batch is made of the best materials and is perfectly formed.
Building model railways is a fine hobby. Besides the satisfaction of completing a project which remembers and pays tribute to the way people once lived, the various activities involved in creating and operating a model railway layout can help participants to develop skills which can translate into every day life. For example, when steam locomotives were new, they represented the pinnacle of achievement in mechanical engineering up to that point. When modelling enthusiasts undertake the recreation of one of these classic locomotives, understanding how such a machine functions is fundamental to the process. This isn't to say any of us are likely to encounter a situation during our daily routine where we are called upon to repair a high pressure steam boiler, but in a more general sense a basic grasp of mechanical principles can help us to understand how things work, to put in place systems to achieve ends, and to fix them when they go wrong.
Of course, few of those pioneers of engineering would have made every single component for their creations themselves (although many of them doubtless would have had the ability to do so). Certain parts – such as heavy engineering components like wheels and axles – would have been produced in large batches, and stored until required. So it is with the parts for gauge 0 railway modellers Walsall Model Industries produce on a batch by batch basis. We carry stocks of certain components but fear not, our manufacturing processes are closely monitored to ensure the quality and uniformity of everything we make.
In order to receive feedback from experienced gauge 0 railway modellers Walsall engineers love to hear from customers who have used our products. We believe that dialogue with the creative community can only help our items to get better and better. While we take care to respect the heritage and tradition which are tied up with the field we work in, we are also aware that developments in other areas can help us to bring an even better standard of product to our discerning customers. So, if you are one of the gauge 0 railway modellers Walsall Model Industries would love to hear from you. Get in touch and tell us what you like, what you don't like, and what developments would help you to take your railway modelling creativity to new heights.
