Headline_Photo Welcome to Poppy’s website for model railway kits.

Latest Show News;
- Hurray - some shows to go to ... Visit our Exhibitions page to see where. Kettering - Please pre-book orders for our larger items where you can to avoid disappointment - also for multiple items
It is really difficult to judge how many will attend, and if modellers will be buying as we enter the 'new normal' show season. Please help us to help you by letting us know what you are likely to be asking for on the day and we will bring what you need (plus some extras).

At Poppy's we are continuing to provide our first class postal service for your orders. Let us know what you need for your projects and layouts and we can advise and provide kits from our range to help.
We help you create your model railway more enjoyably, for example, making tough tasks (loco building) and repetitive jobs (station valance) a pleasure. Please browse our pages and products, we hope there is something here for everyone.

What our customers say: LOADS of new photos and professional builder comments on our Customer page to see what they have said and the results of their modelling activities.
More great comments from professional builders about our Loco builder Box.
There are even more fabulous photos of modelling provided by our customers. They are great inspiration for other modellers and show inventive use of our products. Please keep them coming.

Our tools help you to set the standards for your railway, to achieve better running, realistic clearances and benchmarks for the lifetime of your hobby. Look for our NEW Workbench range to help keep you tidy and organised.

Our range of in-stock Loco Builder Boxes continues to grow, now available in both S Scale and 7mm Narrow Gauge and in Gauge 1

Our kits are simple to build and easily adaptable to be useful in all types of layouts and dioramas. We supply you high-quality laser cut components that are consistent in size, made to fit together easily using the simplest of techniques and basic tools, and suit your layout design and requirements. We use the technology of the laser to remove the repetition and add enjoyment for those not so easy tasks.

All our products are made for modellers by modellers. We have designed and built every one of our kits. We know they can give you good results and we can advise how to get the best from them and how they can be used together for effective results.

You don’t have to paint our kits to look like wood – because they are. For our wooden kits we use top quality birch plywood to resemble scale thickness components with a fine grain that looks most realistic.

Our policy of 'Modeller's rates' on postage remains, we wouldn't charge you more than we would expect to pay!

    *** Special Announcement ***

    Strong rumours abound that Poppy has been enticed by offers in the January transfer window after a brief appearance at Everton’s Goodison Park yesterday. We can assure everyone there is no transfer agreement in place and we still have every confidence Poppy will continue to appear with us in the future. We do not paws to seek purrfection.

    *** When we are at shows ***

    I can't be at the shows we attend, but if I was I would sit here.





    Poppy is always around to make sure all of our products are packed with the same care we would expect if we received them as modellers. At the end of the day that's what we are; modellers sharing our solutions. Img



    *** In the packing department ***

    These Loco Boxes need special attention.
