The management has no connections with the following except as a satisfied customer.

Binnie Engineering
Where would Whittlecreek and Eaton St Torpid Heritage Railway be without you Peter? Where would 16mm scale modelling have been without your father, Colin? Who, allegedly, could wax lyrical about the genius of William Stroudley.
