New Website Update
Progress has taken longer than anticipated, but should be launched in June. You do not need to change your browsers as it will use the same URL. (I think that's what they call it!) Once up and running, I would appreciate any constructive comments you may have. The existing site has been very easy to use and has served me well, but changes had to be made, so the obvious answer was a complete change. I hope you like it when it arrives

Resin Building Kits
Following the death of my caster's wife and his decision to scale back his contract work, we are now moving production to a new site and a new caster. We have just had the first kits starting to come through in the last couple of weeks, but it will take a few more weeks to catch up. Some long-outstanding orders are starting to be fulfilled at last.

Perth Show
Due to a family wedding, Invertrain will not be able to attend this years show at Perth. We will be back in 2019. If any customer wishes to collect items at Perth, please let me know in plenty of time and I will try and make arrangements for you to collect from another trader at the show.

Our catalogue

Our catalogue has the following sections. To browse all the castings in each section, click on the section's title, otherwise just click on the subsection you're interested in.

The buildings are based on past or present railway prototypes. They are not meant to be 100% accurate copies of the original. They do, however, closely follow the prototype and are designed to reflect the character, look, style and size of the original. The kits are complete with glazing and accessories and require only adhesives and paint to complete.

Most of our models are constructed from resin castings produced from hand-finished moulds. Windows, doors, etc. are mainly cast in resin but in certain cases will use stone cast plaster, etched brass or whitemetal castings. Further details regarding individual buildings are shown in the lists below. Highland Castings now manufacture the building kits under their own name. The kits will continue to be sold through Invertrain Model Railways. Please note that kit numbers have changed from lists prior to August 2001.
