Taff Vale Models provide a wide range of etched model railway kits and motors with an emphasis on the pre-grouping period and in particular Welsh railways of that era.
A new website is under development however in the meantime, please use the contact details on this page for any purchases or other enquiries.
New kits are now being released and we will maintain and where appropriate, enhance current products.
We offer the following range of products:
Dragon Models: Locomotives and Welsh railway rolling stock, mainly 7mm/ft. scale, some 4mm/ft. too.
Celtic Connection: A range of fascinating non-Welsh prototypes from the rest of the UK in 7mm/ft. scale.
Taff Vale Models: 12volt DC 5 pole skew wound motors available on our online motor shop or alternatively our eBay page, together with etched gearboxes and other components. Any new kits will also fall under this brand inluding the recently introduced Taff Vale Rly. Iron Mink..
We also sell the very high quality DeLocloods Rolling Roads in 7mm scale and the ready-to-run locos from Ixion UK 7mm range.
Dragon Models started trading in 1993, when the first transfers for Cambrian Railways wagons were produced. Since then a range of etched brass kits for wagons, carriages and locomotives has been released.
In 2017 we acquired the business from Chris Basten who continues to support us while he develops excellent ready-to-run products from Minerva Models.
