What a little gem of a business you've got, very very helpful and friendly.  A1 service and when I need help again you will be my No1 call. I can't speak highly enough of you, many business could learn from you, on a scale of 1 to 10, you are a 12.  So very grateful, keep up the good work and I will certainly recommend you to anybody who asks.  I only wish I lived nearer so I could pay you a visit.

(Minitrains 009/HOe Plymouth Diesel Loco)
Comments:
My Plymouth diesel was struggling as a result of a ballast particle making its way into the works.   I completely dismantled the chassis to locate the grit but with no longer nimble fingers, reassembly of the nigh on 20 components was way beyond me.   The Goods Yard  came to the rescue with a complete rebuild such that the loco runs far better than ever. Excellent work at a very reasonable cost and my cup runneth over.

Just like to say, "thank you very much".  My first time of using this company and it most certainly wont be my last.  Very fast efficient service of a class 92 loco poor runner, within the week sent in repaired returned to good working order.  Great communication and great price.  Hope to use again soon.

(Hornby Minitrix N Gauge Flying Scotsman)
Comments:
Our cousin who visits 6 months every year visits our model railway club.  His N gauge Minitrix Flying Scotsman developed a problem, he runs it at our club and on both my layout and his own at his British residence.  He was going to take it home with him to California but looking at The Goods Yard reviews, I advised Ron to have it repaired here.  Very nice to deal with, I sent the loco and it was returned in 6 days I will certainly use them if I require a repair. Granted it didn't need parts but I would highly recommend them.  Well done Phil and Richard.

I thought my three locomotives were beyond help but just two weeks later were repaired perfectly, running better than new.  One was 50 years old!  The other two were not much younger.  Service was superb and from genuine enthusiasts.  I cannot recommend The Goods Yard high enough.

I have a diesel locomotive that I last saw working in 1977, it fell off the track and one of the bogies broke and the parts were lost.  After over 30yrs sitting in loft, these guys got it repaired and watching it working again at their shop was unreal. these guys are brilliant would highly recommend.

Brilliant, fast, exacting professional service.  Definitely a rare find in today's market, well done and a big thank you.  I will be back.
Name: Richard Marzec Service: Layout Planning
Comments:
Iíve just had a great experience!   I canít praise the help and advice I received from both Richard and Phil more highly, especially as they were faced with a novice with little or no knowledge.   I have therefore no hesitation in recommending them to all and I for one will certainly be back.  Well done lads.
Name: Rowan Harding-Jack Service: Layout Planning
Comments:
My praise cannot be fulsome enough!  I started off with one idea and then completely changed my mind AFTER the bulk of the original design work had been done.   Many would have shown their frustration but Richard just produced the heavily pruned and adapted layout with never a sign of the frustration he must have felt.  The full-sized template will be a Godsend.  Richard has been extremely helpful in giving 'how to' information which may, by some, to have been considered trade secrets.  I am extremely grateful to all involved and would, with hesitation, recommend The Goods Yard to anyone.
Name: Saul Smith Service: Locomotive Repair
Comments:
I was so pleased to find some where to get my N gauge class 47`s repaired.
The service provided was excellent.  I like the idea of the repair submission form, this way you can be confident the repair is possible.  Very reasonable price, and Richard & Phil ensured I was kept informed 're the progress of the repairs.  They also let me know when the locos were posted back to me.  I will keep The Goods Yard details safe for my future service and repair requirements.
Name: Garry Griffiths Product: Ready-to-Run 'OO' gauge Model Railway

Excellent friendly service.  Phil & Richard are both enthusiastic and knowledgeable railway modellers.  Took possession of my OO gauge layout yesterday and I am extremely satisfied with the quality of their workmanship.
Name: Phil Hodgkiss Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
Taken delivery of my bespoke "N" gauge model railway today 27-7-2014.  Both Phil and Richard couldn't have been more helpful throughout the build and from start to finish. Delivery was exactly when they had arranged and once assembled instructions where given along with demo for the point work, apparently it is quite complex.  I now look forward to the scenic side of model railways as this is my first attempt in over forty years.   Thanks go to this wonderful team.  Credit where credit is due
Name: David Bushell Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
Many thanks Phil and Richard for your excellent service and help.  I purchased the N Gauge Branchline ready to run layout from The Goods Yard as a step back into railway modelling after a gap of nearly 40 years and I would not hesitate to recommend their service.  I was kept up to date by regular e-mails and photo's on the progress of the layout and the workmanship is first class and a credit to the two guys.
Name: Michael Wasley Service: Shop Customer - Locomotive Repair

Very friendly, helpful and efficient service in rejuvenating some old three rail locos that hadn't seen the light of day for night for 30 years.  Also remarkably tolerant of our two very small, train mad grandsons.

Excellent service, restored loco to working order and now runs like new.  Costs reasonable and I was kept informed at every stage.  I would not hesitate to use this or their other services in the future.  Highly recommended !

First class service from design to installation of 00 gauge Model Railway.  Excellent communication and photographic updates throughout the construction period and the actual installation was ultra fast, hitch free and efficient.  Phil and Richard were totally professional throughout the process - thanks, chaps, from a completely satisfied customer (and wife!).
Name: Ben Moorcroft Service: Shop Customer - Locomotive Repair

Brought a sick OO gauge A4 engine in to the shop to be looked at.   Left with a perfect A4 engine, and another reasonably priced engine.   Again, flawless service and prices!

A Kit Built Bristol Railcar that has not run since I got it years ago.  The boys undertook repair work and it runs now!!   Service second to none.   Excellent and fast return too.   Thanks.
Name: Russell Brown Service: Ready-to-Run N gauge Model Railway
Comments:
I have just taken delivery of my new Twin Level N gauge layout from Phil and Richard at The Goods Yard.  I asked for a slightly longer (7ft) and wider version with 6 lane fiddle yard and a few minor track and point alterations.  It is DCC wired and ballasted with cork laid on the whole baseboard.  So far it runs faultlessly and the workmanship that has gone into the track laying and baseboard construction is fantastic.  The service I received was also top  quality, with lots of communication and picture updates during the build of the layout.  Overall a great experience, and a great layout which will take me some time to complete scenery wise!!  Thanks a lot guys another very pleased customer
Name: John Davies Service: Spares and Repairs
Comments:
Excellent service, I sent an elderly Hornby "A4" for repairs, its a temperamental beast at times but "The Goods Yard" did a fine job and I shall be sending more locos for service/repair.  Very impressed by "customer care" and prompt responses.

I recently visited to buy a power transformer for my point system.   Left with a Gaugemaster D, a ton of useful stuff, another engine for my son, and a larger understanding of model railways.  Your prices are very reasonable, your staff are very friendly, and massively helpful!

Comments:
Richard and Phil have done excellent work in restoring my Bachmann N Class loco which went into self destruct!  They also supplied a second hand Bachmann std 4 and  both run like new.  Excellent communication while the repair was being carried out, a very efficient service.  Would recommend them to fellow modellers.
Name: John Ridgway Product: Ready-to-Run 'OO' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
 The Goods Yard team (Richard & Phil) have installed a large '00' gauge railway to my complete satisfaction.  Initially converting my wish-list into a viable track design, and subsequent iterations to before final plan, they were tolerant of my wishes, and courteous in their explanations.   The installation was done in two phases.   During the build, I was given regular updates.   Installation was very professionally done, it was a pleasure to have them in my home.   I am very happy to recommend The Goods Yard to anyone interested.

Lovely engine in excellent condition, very well packed & super quick delivery, with excellent communication & service.  I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from THE GOODS YARD in future.  Thank you.
Name: Mike Ingham Service:  Layout Planning
Comments:
The Goods Yard took a rough sketch of my ideas and turned them into reality.  Their CAD design system gave me the reassurance of knowing that everything is going to fit before a single piece of track goes down on the baseboard.   I also ordered an AO sized plan of the most complicated pointwork area which enabled me to use it as a template which saved time and was helpful.  I dealt with Richard throughout who was very helpful; more than happy to give advice and was always on-the-ball and punctual in his response.  I can highly recommend The Goods Yard not only for the peace of mind in the planning stage but in their prompt and friendly service throughout- well worth the money.
Name: Mark Storer Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway

Comments:
Absolutely bloomin' marvellous!  Phil and Richard are not just 'two of a kind'.  They have given excellent service from start to finish and I now own a terrific layout.  I am now enjoying time out in my shed, while my wife is enjoying peace and quiet indoors!!  Thank you chaps for your hard work over the weeks and for good customer service.  Top marks!!
Name: Andrew Ingles Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
I've always wanted a model railway but lacked the time until my recent retirement and most certainly lacked the practical skills.  Richard and Phil were extremely helpful from the outset and kept me informed all along - it was brilliant to have photos as construction progressed.  Richard and Christine delivered the completed layout yesterday, set everything up and explained details of the operation.  In total The Goods Yard provides a huge range of knowledge, a top class product and excellent, friendly, supportive customer service.  I'm now looking forward to adding scenery and acquiring more trains over the coming months and years!
Name: Phil Brown Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
Doesn't seem a week since I came over to Tuxford to collect my finished layout.  1st class service from the time I placed the order.   I would certainly recommend Richard & Phil to anybody wanting to purchase a model railway (and I already have !! ).   Living the dream.
Name: Norman Gibson Product: Bespoke Baseboards and Trestles
Comments:
I was very pleased with quality of the baseboards and the customer service.   One of the boards was damaged in transit but Phil & Richard responded very quickly and replacement part was dispatched.  I would recommend their services.
Name: Nigel Chubb Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
Excellent service from Richard and Phil for my N gauge layout.  Practical help given at all stages from design to final finish.  Particularly helpful were the photos sent at each stage of construction.  If you don't get what you thought, its your own fault!
Name: Peter Knott Product: Ready-to-Run 'OO' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
Richard and Phil have done a great job of the planning.  I sent them a rough sketch and they did the rest.  The base boards, track ballasting and electrics are great, I would  recommend them to anyone; two top class guys.
Name: David Peach Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
Thank you so much for the recent delivery of my N gauge railway.  From the moment I made an initial enquiry; through the design and planning stages and onto its construction and delivery, the service you offer is outstanding.  The layoutís construction is excellent and everything worked from the moment all of the packaging was removed.  The use of 2 multi connectors for the detachable switch module, that controls the points, makes an easy and foolproof method of connection.  Thank you Phil and Richard for all of your hard work and I would recommend you to anyone interested in having a model railway professionally designed and made.
Name: Alan Hinchliffe Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
I recently picked up my N gauge layout from the Goods Yard.  Richard and Phil were very  helpful keeping me up to date on progress regularly.  I am very pleased with the workmanship and Richard even opened for 2 hours on Sunday and spent time explaining things to me when I picked the layout up.  Many thanks .

Name: Peter Camp Service: Locomotive Repair
Comments:
An excellent service both in servicing my engine and finding replacement parts for it at a very cheap cost, highly recommended for help and workmanship.
Name: Peter Stallwood Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
When I enquired about having a layout planned and built I was very pleasantly surprised at the level of attention I got.  A basic plan was drawn up and after quite a few changes - split baseboard, turntable, extra track and stud operation for the points - the plan was finalised.
There was then a long wait, as Phil and Richard are justifiably busy, until the day came for me to pick up my new toy. The welcome my wife and I got was great. The operations were patiently explained to me especially one complicated set of points.
Thanks for all you patience and help. Fantastic service.
Name: John Knapton Product: Ready-to-Run 'OO' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
Excellent service and very good workmanship.  I can confidently recommend Phil & Richard to anyone who needs a starter layout.  They are also very good at keeping a customer informed of progress.
Name: John Thompson Service:  Layout Planning
Comments:
I asked the guys if they would help me with a track plan.  Within less than a week, a plan had been put together by Richard, and sent out to me
Fantastic service, and well worth a trip to "The Goods Yard" to have a look round and get some expert advice.
Thanks again Richard.
Name: Ian Johnson Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
I've had my extended twin level "N" gauge layout for a couple of weeks now and have to say I'm very pleased with the quality of the layout and how smoothly it all operates.  Phil and Richard have both been most helpful during the build and included the modifications I wanted without hesitation.  It was completed within the promised timeframe and fully demonstrated when I went to collect it.  All I can add to previous comments is that if you want a top class layout look no further than the Goods Yard.
Name: David Haynes Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
My wife and I are extremely pleased with the continental version twin level layout, now featured on the "Recent Projects" page, that Phil & Richard built for us to run our German trains on.  Although I work away from home for weeks at a time, communication throughout the project was excellent.  The track geometry is precise and the baseboard and trestle finish is first class.  The complicated wiring of the track power supply, and the linked point motors, has been reduced to a clever but simple-to-use system which can be disconnected and re-connected in moments for storage and if the two part layout needs to be separated.  I am looking forward to the next addition from The Goods Yard in the near future, once the scenery on the present layout has been completed.  Great work and a pleasure to deal with.
Name: Ian Mackenzie Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
We've had our 6' x 2'6" N gauge layout for a few weeks now and I cannot fault the build quality.  All of our locos from 0-6-0 to 2-8-0s manage all of the points and bends beautifully.  The electrics work perfectly and the Vortrak Morley controller is of a superb quality.  From early design and planning, through to completion the service was exceptional and the original completion date was met exactly.
Thanks gents; you have made x2 boys very happy....one aged 5 and one aged 38!
Name: Andy Hobson Service: Locomotive Repair

A pleasure to deal with, good pleasant communication and a first class repair.  The loco runs as new!  Don't go anywhere else!!

Comments:
Collected my N gauge L shaped layout on Saturday.  The workmanship is terrific and my wife and I greatly appreciated your hospitality in handing it over - showing us how it was made and how I use it.  I cant give a high enough accolade.  If you are reading this and wondering whether to order a layout - don't even hesitate.  I wont go anywhere else for future extensions.  Thanks again guys.
Name: Keith Cattell Service: Locomotive Repair
Comments:
May I say first of all that your service is A1, my second comment relate to Service of two Locos', both first class, they are a joy to behold.  The second Two Locos' are being wrapped now, if the service is the same as the first part, God knows what I write for the second.
Comments (Part Two):  Two Locos 4625 & 61547;
Second part of Servicing.  Goodness gracious, what can I say.  Service is purely excellent, they gave them a 'large look-over, advised that one required something so mundane, they fixed it.  I'll get the third part ready to send, look forward to writing the next feedback.
Comments (Part Three): Two Locos:  BR 4MT 75001 and Pannier 9606 BR 4MT;
This is another part of servicing, again superb handling and return, I am speechless at the way you have handled all three consignments of Locos, you have kept me aware of when the locos were due and lived with the date.
Comments (Part Four): Goods arrived Sat 24th July, Hornby A3, 60048 Doncaster was sent for servicing, my word what a difference, fixed two traction tyres plus service. The loco now runs with Four Pullman coaches in tow.  What else can I say, thank you very much for the great service.
Comments (Part Five): Second-hand Airfix  2-6-2 Tank;  I must congratulate you on the second-hand loco you have sold me. L oco plus Service plus p&p = complete grin on my face, the loco was superb, I have found some Clerestory coaches so she runs with the correct running stock.
Name: Brian McCord Service: Locomotive Repair

Two of my old Farish N locos which ran poorly from new were quickly repaired by the Goods Yard.  I was pleased with the repair and the locomotives now run better than ever before.  I am now considering purchasing a larger N gauge layout from the Goods Yard!!
Name: Carl Butler Product: Baseboard
Comments:
After seeing the web page I contacted the guys for some help and then ordered an N gauge base board and plan.  I am so happy with it.  The board is very well made and lots of love has gone into it, the service and work carried out is second to none. Collecting the board was a very nice experience, being shown around the workshop and having all sorts of ideas given to me.  Great work guys and I would recommend you to anyone.  A complete service that is second to none.

I've taken delivery of my new layout from Phil & Richard at the Goodsyard.  Their products, craftsmanship, knowledge and customer service are second to none.

My Minitrix 25+years old locos are now as good as new thanks to "The Goods Yard" carrying out a thorough service and repair.  It is very refreshing to deal people who keep the customer informed and do what they say when they say, in a good time and at a good cost.  I will be back for more service like this.

I have now been running my N Gauge layout for 1 month and would like to thank Richard and Phil for giving me such a trouble free and excellently finished Layout in DCC operation.   The waiting was well worth it.
Name: Martin Alton Product: Gauge 1 Model Railway
Comments:
Its two weeks before Christmas and the ordered layout has just been safely delivered to my home.  You might be forgiven for thinking that my young son is part of this scenario - No way!  This is a 'not so grumpy old mans' layout and it is just what I've always wanted, a Gauge One Shunting Yard.
My thanks to Phil and Richard for committing to this project and putting up with my demands and reworks to the original plans.   The Goods Yard is a professional business with a practical approach to building your dream layout.  I thoroughly recommend them.
Name: James King Service: Locomotive Repair

Richard recently repaired a collection of Farish locomotives I purchased off EBay.  Two of the locos were poor performers so were taken in part exchange against the cost of repairs.  The other 3 locos now run like a dream thanks to the expert repair undertaken by The Goods Yard team

Comments:
Excellent! Having picked a plan for my 8x4 N gauge layout from a 1960 booklet the layout was modified and updated with the help of Richard and Phil.  I got exactly what I wanted notwithstanding minor additions up to the final build and am really pleased with the quality of the build and its implementation as well as the goods supplied.  It did take a while for my order to be completed but was kept abreast by photos once the layout started in earnest.  I now have many years ahead to try and develop the scenery etc to the same standard and cannot wait until the Autumn to really get into it.
Name: Geoff Lane Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway based on Morebath in Devon
Comments:
We picked up our N gauge railway yesterday and we are highly delighted.  A great deal of time and patience was spent planning the layout and a great deal of time and expertise has been spent making the baseboard, trestle and model. Phil and Richard were able to give us a tutorial on how the model worked which has proven to be invaluable.  Once again - thanks for the model.

It is said that one should beware a person who turns a hobby into a job; HOW WRONG. These guys are enthusiastic about their hobby, full of knowledge they are eager to share but, in the job they use advanced design and manufacture techniques to produce a first class product, delivered on time.  I would recommend them to anyone
Name: Stephen Wilson Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway
Comments:
Brilliant! I got exactly what I wanted and am really pleased with the quality of the goods supplied.  It took a while for my order to arrive but I knew that in advance and the wait was totally worth it.
Name: Mike Warburton Product: Ready-to-Run 'N' gauge Model Railway later named Long Newton
Comments:
Many thanks for an excellent model railway.  It has been built and wired to run exactly as I wanted it and works faultlessly.  The electric points and controller supplied (a Morley VESTA) work brilliantly and look great.  The woodwork is also fantastic and the layout should last many years.  I made alterations to the plan after committing to it and the Goods Yard were happy to accommodate the revisions I made.  Richard and Phil have done a great job and I would recommend their work to anyone (unlike my own scenic work - time to break out the test bench before I ruin the new layout!). Thanks again.

A great many thanks for my custom built shelf layout.  This is now in place above the computer desk & awaiting "sceniking" (sic). For those thinking of using The Goods Yard, their service & workmanship cannot be faulted from design to build / delivery; & two nice blokes too !  Pics of completed layout will be sent as promised...about Christmas !!
Name: Gordon Viccars Service:  Layout Planning
Comments:
The loft room space I have available for my layout is quite a complicated shape, and although I wanted to build the baseboard myself and do the track-laying and wiring, I hadn't a clue as to how best to fit in all the features I wanted, or whether I had sufficient space for everything.
The alternatives seemed to be either to purchase CAD software and spend hours learning how to use it or buying lots of track and using the trial and error method to make everything fit, again very time consuming and frustrating.
I then came across this site whilst surfing, and realised that there is a third alternative - get the professionals to do it for me!
Very soon after supplying measurements of the area available and details of the features required, I received a basic plan.  Following a couple of telephone conversations this plan was fine-tuned between us, and I have now received the end result, a 1:10 scale drawing and list of all the track I need.
Needless to say, I am delighted with this.  I now know exactly what I need to buy and that it will fit on the finished baseboard.  I have saved a lot of time and stress for a very modest fee, and have been most impressed by the friendly and helpful service.

I recently purchased a used Minitrix Britannia loco.  I was most impressed as it was posted quickly and is a very nice runner too.  I would definitely buy from you again and will be enquiring about some layout boards in the near future.  Highly recommended friendly service.  How refreshing that is these days!!

I was so impressed with the starter layout that I commissioned for last Christmas, that I placed an order for a much larger ready to run N gauge layout.  I am certainly glad that I did!  The layout is on two levels, so required very careful and meticulous work and then equally good packaging to protect it.  The layout has a large number of points which were beautifully wired into a set of consoles and neatly run under the board in conduit throughout.  A plan was also supplied that makes their operation easy.  I am really pleased with the level of craftsmanship that has gone into producing the layout from baseboard modelling through track layout and onto electronic point installation.   Once again I am happy to recommend "The Goods Yard" team to anyone thinking about using their services.

Many thanks for supplying my baseboard.  It arrived safely and well packaged was delivered by a very polite courier man.  It was so well packaged that it took me nearly 20 minutes to cut the packaging away and well labeled so the couriers did not squash the inclines.
The build quality is very good and the full size plan will help in track laying.
Delivered about 2 weeks earlier than expected so many thanks.  Just have to wait to pay day now to start laying tracks.

Really grateful, not only for the order being built at short notice in the busy Christmas period, but also that the N gauge starter layout that I selected was built and the track laid, with great precision and care.
I would certainly recommend other prospective customers to use the services of these model railway craftsmen!

The guys at The Goods Yard acted professionally when approached by ourselves to convert an idea into a very effective window display.  N. St. J. Paint & Sons Ltd is a manufacturing jewelers in Guernsey and anything that can grab the gentlemen's attention whilst the ladies in his life browse the window is welcome.  We were unsure if a track could be laid in the tight confines of the window and Richard not only confirmed that it was possible, but lead us down the correct track (excuse the pun) and offered us various possibilities.  We are very happy and Joe Public seems to like it also.  Thank you once again guys.

I received the locos back yesterday and I must say it is a pleasure doing business with people who love their job as they are both running as good as the day they were purchased which is some achievement especially when you consider one of them is 41 years old.

I bought an  'N' gauge ready to run train set back in February 2006.  It is very well made and looks good.  I would recommend the lads at TheGoodsYard to build a set in any gauge for any body.  They certainly know what they are doing.
