Welcome to our Model Shop

Welcome to our Model Shop


Our model shop has won Bachmann's Retailer of the Year Award. THE SIGNAL BOX in Anstey, Leicestershire has been in business since the 1980s, previously operating from two Leicestershire locations in Oadby and Coalville before relocating to Anstey. Malcolm Godfrey founded and ran the business until he took retirement in 2005 when Martin Smith took over. Martin has always been interested in railways and brings enthusiasm and knowledge to the business to provide an excellent customer service to modellers and railway enthusiasts.

Our model shop stocks a wide range of rolling stock and accessories from N to G scales for railway modellers and also a vast range of railway related dvds which appear on this web site and are sold worldwide. Martin's model shop carries the widest range of products possible and, with 5 other members of staff, provides a helpful and friendly welcome for anyone visiting the shop. The shop also offers an on-site repair service and decoder fitting service for rolling stock.

You can phone our Model Shop on 0116 236 2901 between 9:30am and 5:30pm, Monday to Friday, and 09:30am to 5pm on Saturdays, with an answerphone at all other times.

TRANSPORT DVDS

The Signal Box @ Wolverton Rail, Britain's longest established Transport DVD Suppliers since 1987!

For many years, THE SIGNAL BOX LTD has been Britain's leading railway dvd specialists and stocks literally thousands of high quality titles. As well as many retail customers, we also supply many trade customers such as railway centres throughout the country as well as overseas.
However, in early 2013 Judith Smith wanted to retire, and the DVD division was sold to WOLVERTON RAIL. But fear not... it is all in very safe hands! WOLVERTON RAIL was established in 1987 by Ian King and has been a major customer and friend of THE SIGNAL BOX since 1988! So it's definitely business as usual!


In addition to our main WOLVERTON RAIL office in Milton Keynes, we continue to operate from the Anstey office and are using the same staff as before.. except for Judith who is enjoying a well earned retirement!! :-D

If you prefer buy your DVDs 'off-line' then please call our DVD ordering hotlines on 0116 318 3720 or 0116 298 3720 between 09:30 and 17:30 Monday to Friday. (Please note we cannot answer Model Shop enquiries on these phone numbers and they are automatically diverted to the Milton Keynes office when our Anstey office is busy)

Or phone our Milton Keynes office on 01234 71 16 15 between 09:00 and 17:30 Monday to Friday.


You can still phone the 0116 236 2901 model shop number and they will either put you through to us in Wolverton Rail or take your order and pass it on to us. At Anstey, we are all on the same train! :-) <SMILE>
