A quick update.  We are still busy manufacturing away as usual - but we are not taking any more orders. All of our production should be complete during the next few months.  Any remaining items are shown in the shop as usual.

We are retiring and as the items which we have been supplying run out, we are removing them from this Web Shop, so there are now many empty pages. 

Due to our announced retirement, we have a long list of back orders and apologise for the delays in making the items and sending them out.

Should there be any spare kits etc from these final batches, then they will reappear on the Web Shop in due course.

It is possible that the Brandbright range be continued by a successor and if so news of this will be posted here

You may still securely place your order online. If the items are no longer available, then we will notify you. As usual, until your order is ready for despatch, no payment will be taken.

Thank you for your custom and the many friendships we have enjoyed, since we started making and supplying garden railway items as Brandbright Limited in 1983

Welcome to the website and  On-line Shop of Brandbright Ltd.

This is the world of large scale model railways - a world where steam engines can be real steam, where wheels really go clickety-clack over the rail joints and you feel as though you are in charge of a real train.

Since the early eighties, Brandbright have specialised in supplying and manufacturing 16mm to the foot scale narrow gauge model railway equipment. Whatever your needs, Brandbright provides a friendly and reliable service to 'garden-sized' modellers world-wide. The factory, a former village school, is totally dedicated - along with it's staff - to garden sized railways. We do not operate as a shop. Being garden railway enthusiasts ourselves, we appreciate the modellers requirements, and try to fulfil these, rather than hard sell inappropriate equipment.

We take pride in the quality of our products and with our policy of supplying a choice, we can supply all your needs including locos, rolling stock, track and a host of accessories. The choice is important, Brandbright both manufacture and also retail other manufacturers products so as to be able to offer the right product for your particular needs.

This www site contains our 16mm scale, range much of which is compatible with Gauge 3 and its narrow gauge version (G scale) - a range which is constantly expanding!

For garden sized narrow gauge, the normally used track gauges are 32mm and 45mm, which correspond to Gauge 0 and Gauge 1. There is great compatibility between 16mm scale, G scale and Gauge 3.

We hope you will enjoy visiting our site, and that you will find it useful when ordering your live steam or garden railway equipment from Brandbright. Our customers congratulate us on our speedy and efficient service, and we take pride in combining this with the courtesy reminiscent of long gone days when steam engines ruled the rails. We are convinced that you will not find a better range or service than that from Brandbright.
