QUOTE (Edwin @ 14 Oct 2008, 08:23) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>It appears the company is being wound up (cross-post from another forum).

Hello all,

I am new to this forum, hence the name. I have personally looked through the windows of Mackays shop from the rear of the premises and can tell you that the premises are empty. The last time i was in the shop Alan had said that he was winding up the business possibly before the end of September 2008. It appears that this has happened. I have attended several shows recently and there has been no presence from Mackays. If i meet any of the staff and have this confirmed I will post the info on this forum. Some good news from the Paisley area is the formation of a new shop in the shape of Trains on Time. This business has been set up in a small unit in the industrial estate on Backsneddon area near to the Halfords store on the one way system. The owner has posted directions on his website. ( Check the place out guys, cheap as chips as some would say. Stockists of Bachmann, Hornby, Heljan, and along with a few other popular companies, this store is devoted purely to Model Railways and train sets for the younger enthusiast. DCC Ready locos for less then £16.00 and starter sets from £35.00 make the place well worth checking out. I find that, when buying, a better deal can be had by phoning the shop up and chatting to them, or better still go in and see them. Friendly bunch and always pleased to see customers at any time of the day. One draw back. Shop is closed Saturday and Sunday. Open Week days only. Still, can'y have everything I suppose. Cheers people.
