Corona Virus Update - January 2021 We've just had some rather sad news from the Scottish government in that Scotland goes back into full Corona Virus lockdown.
This may well impact the business as I need to return to only posting out orders when doing essential shopping trips.
This could also impact deliveries of raw materials in, but I will keep running as long as I can. I'll do my best to keep things turning over here in the locoworks.
Currently orders are taking up to 4 weeks to despatch (March 2021 Update)
Thank you for your continued support and understanding
SLOW DOWN! How many times do we see folks moaning on about the speed of our little locos? Well here at HGLW we have listened and have produced a set of speed restriction signs to help keep your drivers in check
