It is now compulsory to wear a face covering in shops. Therefore we ask you to please wear one on entering our Guildford branch and when collecting a 'click & collect' order at our Camborne shop. Thank you!
Guildford is open to customers. Please follow the 2 metre social distancing guidelines inside the shop, and outside if waiting to enter. There is a maximum number of 2 customers permitted in the shop at any one time. In order to reduce the potential waiting time for others please limit yourself to 10 minutes inside the shop. Due to this we are unable to allow general browsing at this time. You can also place an order through our website, or via phone, to collect from the Guildford shop. Please make sure you make it clear, if ordering through the website, by using the 'Special Instructions' box at the time of ordering that you are wanting to collect your order from the Guildford shop.
Camborne is only operating on a 'Click & Collect' and 'Phone & Collect' service, from a designated collection point. It is located to the left of the shop (if standing facing the front of the shop). Please look for the signage! If placing your order for 'Click & Collect' on our website, for either shops, please make it clear that your order is for collection using the 'Special Instructions' box. Make sure you say if it is for the Camborne or Guildford shop! Any postage charges will be refunded at the time of collection. Please remember to bring the payment card used to place your order with you when making the collection. You can make a 'Phone & Collect' order by calling us on 01209 714099.
We have a dedicated page for FAQs on our website (found here). If you have a question please do visit this page first to see if your answer can be found!
Kernow Model Rail Centre on 'Virtual' Tour
We are replacing all of the shows we usually attend with virtual shows. We will put information of the special show offers on our Facebook page and website when they are taking place - so keep an eye out! The list of shows we attend can be found here!
I have been looking through all of the lovely email's you have been sending me of your layout photos and, for some reason, I have a load without any photo's attached! There is a magical person in the shop forwarding them onto me but, somehow, without the attachments?! I think (hope!) it has now been sorted so if you have emailed me but not seen your layout showcased then please, please do send them in again!
This week we have a few photo's of Mr Young's, as at the time of sending in the photos, unnamed layout. Has it a name now? Apologies for the delay Mr Young! For all the customer layouts that have been showcased, visit our dedicated customer layout page.
Things You Didn't Know You Didn't Know (or maybe you did?!)
How have I believed this all these years?! Please tell me I am not the only one as, did you know... the colour red doesn’t really make bulls angry as they are partially colour blind, meaning they can't see the colour red! Cattle lack the red retina receptor and can only see yellow, green, blue, and violet colours
. So it appears the colour of the matador's cape has nothing to do with making the bull charge - it is all about he movement of the cape!
James' joke of the week... What do you call a bear with no ears? A B! Keep keeping safe and smiling.
