A Scottish company that makes wooden models with proceeds going to charity have been expanding their railway collection.

Andy Cox set up the company as a sideline in 2012 to raise funds for children’s charities and the small business expanded in 2015, and recently moved to a large farm-based outside Edinburgh.

Their range of railway scale models are designed by enthusiast Iain Ross (he often is found in the sun and rain, with a camera & tape measure around the beautiful old rail buildings in the Highlands), and then sold by Pop UP designs.

Although they can be used for model railways, they’re quite pleasing little collectable models in their own right. They’re laser cut models which you pop-out, sandpaper the edges and clip the parts together.

They’ve recently added Aberdour station to the range, a station that is a popular stop-off point for tourists and railway enthusiasts journeying to Fife and famed for its summer floral displays.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
