O Gauge Coarse Scale Models for Enthusiasts of
Traditional Vintage Style Railway Modelling
Serious Toys for Discerning Boys!
Established in October 2011, WJVintage is a new, small, friendly business created and run by enthusiasts with a passion for traditional, coarse scale, ‘O’ Gauge Model Railways. Our goal is to become a ‘one-stop’shop for all of your ‘O’ Gauge requirements in ‘ready to run’ model form.

Our experience in engineering, marketing and product development, coupled with our knowledge of the model railway market and toy collecting in general, is second to none. We hope to combine all these skills to bring you, the railway connoisseur, the very finest quality model engineering at an affordable, value-for-money price.

Our product range is unashamedly vintage in its appearance, evoking memories of some of the great ‘O’ gauge names of the past such as Bing, Marklin, Hornby and of course Bassett-Lowke. Construction of these models is largely from machine-formed, hand-assembled tinplate, with exquisitely painted and finished locomotives and beautifully lithograph-printed carriages and rolling stock.

We aim to offer the very best of the latest ‘New’ Vintage O Gauge offerings from the likes of ETS, Seven Mill Models, Darstaed and Ace, as well as some original items.

Much of our stock is brand new, a significant number of products are commissioned exclusively by us, some is pre-owned but ‘as new’ and some is used and ‘playworn’. Please read the descriptions and study the photographs carefully. We will never try to be anything other than 100% clear and honest about our products. Stock is constantly changing so please bookmark this site and check back regularly for exciting new items.

Alternatively why not register with us and we will periodically send you news of any new offerings we feel may be of interest. Please click on the ‘Registration Form’ icon and complete the simple online form.

Our range has developed significantly over the past three years and we exhibit at many
of the best known vintage model rail and toy shows the length and breadth of the UK. We want our collectors to be able to see and feel our products first hand and to experience them running where possible.

Last but by no means least we want to meet our collectors in person so we can get to know you even better and likewise you can get to know us and to understand the passion and enthusiasm that drives WJVintage. In summary we want to make friends from our customers and customers from our friends!
