Welcome to NGtrains
EDM models is run by Paul Martin
and is based in York, England. Port Wynnstay models is run by Phil Traxson
and is based in Derby, England
We have been friends for many years and share our interest in both modelling and real railways. We are both seriously into narrow gauge models and tend to concentrate on 0 scale narrow gauge although Port Wynnstay are producing some of the more obscure standard gauge wagons seen here in the UK
We are both serious modellers that have lapsed into being manufacturers to satisfy our own needs. Phil's models tend to be UK prototypes, both narrow and standard gauge, whilst Paul tend to North American narrow gauge in both UK 0 scale (7mm/foot) and US 0 scale (1/4"/foot).
Away from the models we are both involved with the Festiniog Railway. Phil is a fireman and Paul is a driver. Both are heavily involved with the repair and restoration of two of the railways locomotives, Merddin Emrys and Blanche - follow the links to these sites on these links.
[That's Paul on the left with Blanche in the background]
EDM models is not my full time job. By day I work in the rail industry and occasionally I have to be away from home which delays EDM activities. We process orders as fat as we can and then ship them as soon as possible.
If you want next day service then you EDM Models is not the place for you.

Just done a weekends driving at the FR on Merddin for two days. I was pleasantly surprised to find two photos tucked into my timesheet. These were taken at this years Interactive Weekend at the beginning of May. The first shows me and my fireman, Alex Ayres, standing by Blanche at the water tower in Porthmadog and the second shows me hanging in the whistle somewhere between TyB and Rhiw Goch with a down train.
driving Blanche again at TyB.
This was the interactive weekend 2007 and i was about to take Blanche into the sidings once Taliesin had pulled his train in.
We spent most of the afternoon in there as the signalling went tits up locking us in until the S&T collected their call out fee
