09-Jul-2020: Flaming June

The June weather may not have been the sunniest, but it has been warm work int the NGS shop during June. Orders placed by NGS members were over twice the value of last June’s takings and higher than the preceding three ‘Covid’ months. Kit sales has been a major driver as reported below, but also there has been a large jump in the number of the Thompson BG Full Brake. This no doubt has been triggered by the recent release of Thompson coaches by Bachmann/Farish. The has also been a marked increase in kit 37, TTA Chemical tank, usually a slow selling kit.

Small batches of out of stock kits are rolling in including:
