I mainly supply laser cut and engraved name and number plates for miniature railways etc. in any scale, even full size.  However once I have drawn a part in one scale it can be converted easily to any other scale. Also it is fairly easy to modify any existing standard plate drawing when it just needs the name or number altering. There are discounts for cutting more than one set of plates at the same time from the same material.  Please ask.


For more information, until more of this site is developed, contact me by any of the following methods.

This is a  one man part time business so please allow time for emails to be read, orders processed, new drawings to be produced as well as helping run the home and garden,  and walking the dogs. I have to get my priorities right.

I prefer to be contacted by email if possible but if you want to telephone the best time to contact me is between 9.30 and 1.00 then 2.00 till 5.00, apart from a dog walking break, Monday to Friday.


The NAME PLATES project has grown much faster and bigger than I imagined and is now taking up most of my time.

I am therefore suspending the production of wagon kits from the beginning of 2018.

I may, if time allows continue, the production of individual wagon components such as W Irons, V Hangers and Draw Hooks etc.

A new website for these plates will be on line in the near future, look for:   www.modelengineersnameplates.co.uk

 A PDF version of my catalogue is available if you ask via email, see address at bottom of page.


My laser cutting machine will engrave and cut wood, plywood, MDF, card and many plastics. It won’t cut metals or PVC. I can cut and engrave NAME and NUMBER PLATES etc. for many model and other applications. See from page 4 of the catalogue.

I also purchased a while ago my own CNC Sheet Material cutting machine which means I can now cut self adhesive Vinyl decals for wagon lettering, station and other signs.

I know the pictures in the gallery have bits cut off the bottom I will up load new versions when time allows


I usually attend several exhibitions during the year, mainly Doncaster, the Midlands, and several gauge specific shows assisting my colleague Malcolm High on his Model Engineers Laser stand.  Many of my plates and wagon bits can be seen and  purchased there or orders taken for your individual name or number plates.
