Prototype series

In conjunction with the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways, and the Talyllyn Railway, we have produced a series of packaged nameplate and works plates sets for the locos which are in regular use on these railways, plus a few famous extras.

FR & WHR series

Initially in 4mm:ft scale, the F&WHR series is etched on 0.15mm (6 thou) brass for clear reproduction and include correct works plate details, as well as cab number plates and Fairlie's Patent plates where appropriate.

These products are available exclusively at the FR shop at Porthmadog Harbour Station and from the Ffestiniog Railway online shop.

We're happy to discuss further prototype ranges to support other preserved railways. We already have a good coverage of accurate artwork for locomotives on many UK narrow gauge lines from previous orders, and we can work with you to gather more information for the best results.
