Welcome to 55H

The new name is brass O gauge ready to run models. Our locomotives are designed for modellers who require quality, durability, accuracy and performance.

The models are built to the highest standard by FM models in Korea.

It goes without saying, they are extensively researched using original building drawings, consultation with relevant engineers and societies, hundreds of photographs from books, our own collection and the collections of others.

They are as good as we can make then without using hackneyed terms like "museum" quality, "limited edition " and "the best ever". We aim to build something that looks right, runs straight out of the box, pulls a reasonable load and is value for money.


We differ from other manufactures in a number of key areas.

We are not trying to be all things to all men, we focus on one project at a time and give that 100% of our effort. Many eyebrows were raised when 4 RTR 9F's were announced in 2015, to date ours is the only one to arrive and has been so successful we have had to produce a 2nd batch of 3 variations, These are due in January and will probably be still the only models actually available at this time.

We fund our own projects, the deposits we ask for is to ensure that we have a viable project, there is serious money involved before we even see a prototype and once we commit to production, of a specific name or number for you, we need your commitment as well.

We only ask for a deposit once we have placed an order on the factory for production, this initial deposit is fully refundable until actual production commences.

Our models are shipped into the UK DC only, we feel it is unfair to ask modellers who do not use DCC to pay for this function and it also allows us to tune the DCC to individual locomotives. We fit DCC & smoke here in the UK as well as carrying out our weathering service
