Latest News from Plus Daughters
We have now opened again to the public but because of Jade's underlying health problems we are revising the opening times as follows:
9.30am to 1.00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
Closed Thursday and Sunday
Because of the size of the shop we are limiting only one (or two if from same family) at a time in.
Mail ordering and delivering locally to those still in lockdown will continue unaffected. All telephone calls to the shop are now being diverted to my mobile so we won't miss any.
Although the shop is shut to visiting customers due to the on going virus we are still sending out mail orders. If you require anything please either order through the web site, give us an e-mail or call me on 07785 735769. We will try to get parcels off as quickly as possible.
We will be closed from Friday 14th August until Thursday 27th August due to family Summer holiday.
We now also accept PayPal payments. Simply choose PayPal when you select the payment option at the checkout stage to use your PayPal account.

Over the coming week-end we will be at the Glasgow International show (Friday 25th to Sunday 27th of February).
On our return we are extending the shop area adding one and a half times the space to our existing show room. This will mean we will be able to display far more items than at present. As you can appreciate this will take some reorganising hence the reason we will be closed for the whole week. We apologise to our customers for the inconvenience but hope it will be well worth while once complete.
It is our intension to hold the price of items already in stock at the pre the January VAT and absorb the increase. HOWEVER as new stock arrives we will have to add on the 2 1/2% increase plus any prices increases that the manufactors have made from January 1st - For instance Bachmann, Gaugemaster and Peco all appear to have all increased their prices.

Unfortunately we will not be at the Darlington show over the week-end of the 4th/5th December 2010 as the club have had to cancel the show due to the continuing bad weather.
We will be closed for our annual holiday from Wednesday 16th August, re-opening on Monday 6th September 2010. We apologise for any inconvenience.
We are pleased to announce that we are now able to sell a number of the former SD Mouldings buildings. The first six, all hand painted to a very high standard, have been added to the web site with more to follow shortly.
We will be closed from Thursday 24th June re-opening on Thursday 1st July 2010 while we attend the show in Perth. Due to my health we will be taking a few days break before travelling back prior to travelling home. As the shop telephone will be re-routed to my mobile we will still be able to talk to customers but web-site and telephone orders will not be resumed until we return.
We are pleased to announce that we will now be stocking the complete N ranges from the following suppliers:
Street Level Models - Card kits of English railway buildings
Gramodels - Military items and buildings
Exactrail - American Wagons
Please see the web site for items currently in stock - a full list of all their products can be sent via e-mail if required.
We will be closed from Saturday 15th August until Tuesday 25th August for our holiday.
We have revised our opening times now that we are in the new shop, they are
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9.00am to 4.00pm
When we are not attending shows we will also open Saturday 9.00am To 4.00pm - see the Diary Dates section for details. If in doubt please telephone us.
We are now stocking the GRAMODELS range of UK, American and German tanks, army vehicles and buildings kits including the 'Clyde Puffer' as seen in the model press recently.
Next we will shortly be receiving kits from the AUHAGEN range of continental buildings. These will be added to the web site as they arrive.
Number three on the list of new arrivals is the wonderful range of Kato track - both the individual pieces and the add on boxes. A few have already arrived and will be added to the web site shortly under the Track/Electric's section.
Number four on the list of new arrivals are the range of back scenes made by SCENIKING in Canada. We will be stocking the N and Z ranges which cover many different scenes from town to prairies, great lake water fronts to sandstone desert. Measuring between 54 and 111 inches long these are a must for the background of any American/Canadian layout - or any where else if the look right. These hopefully will be arriving mid month.
And lastly we will shortly be stocking the flower strips made by International Models. Comprising of a 6" strip in green with six different coloured flowers at £3.95 these can be used by all gauges to make climbing plants etc.
As of 5th May 2009 our new address will be:
8 Britannia Court
Burnt Mills Industrial Estate
Telephone number: 01268 726211
With most of the UK, American and Continental manufacturers increasing their prices we will be forced to likewise move our prices up when we order new stock. However we will hold the price of all items we currently have in stock at pre-increase prices. Once these are sold the new prices will be shown. This will mean for a while two identical items in different liveries could be shown as different amounts. This gives you the customer a chance to take advantage of the lower prices. How long this will last depends purely on how quickly stock moves. Our advice is if you see some thing on the web site that you want get it before the price goes up.
As many of you know we always sell Graham Farish and Dapol at 10% below the R.R.P. and we will continue to set our prices accordingly.
We have been advised that Bachmann will be increasing the price of most of their Graham Farish range as of the 1st March 2008 due to the rise in cost from China. We will of course leave items we have in stock at the current prices but all new items purchased by us from Bachmann after this date will include the increase. Please note however we have always sold Graham Farish items at 10% below Bachmann's RRP and this will continue.
During December we will have no cover in the unit as Katrina has broken her ankle when she slipped on some wet leaves and hence she is unable drive. To avoid disappointment if you intend visiting us could you please ring first and either Ron or myself will make sure we are available to meet you. I would also point out that this does not have to be during the day as I can be available most evenings up to 9.00pm if this is more convenient.
Additionally we will be open until Christmas Eve and then will be returning on Wednesday 2 January 2008. If you need any thing urgently please call on our normal number and again one of us will 'open up' the unit and try to help.
We would like to wish all our customers a very Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year. We look forward to meeting you all again in 2008.
Having lost my wife Pauline in August the family have been hit a second time with the sudden death of my father on the 10th of February 2007. Because my daughter Katrina, who maintains the web site, spent some time prior to his death nursing him, the items for sale on our 'Plus Daughters' web site have now become slightly out of date. We are still showing some items for sale which we have sold out of and likewise new items have not yet been added. We hope to address this problem over the next couple of week. Should you have any query over any product please either e-mail or telephone us. Hopefully Katrina can get on top of this problem as quickly as possible.
We would also like to apologies to any one who attended either the Tonbridge or Bolton shows who were expecting to see us there. Again because of the reasons above we felt we could not attend these show at that time.
Following my wife Pauline passing away in early August we closed the shop for a month while we took stock of the situation. We have now decided to re-open from September, however could customers please ring for opening hours as these are still being arranged. Also note that on days where we are attending Shows the shop will be closed.David
