Super fast delivery. Sent of on Tuesday and delivered to Germany on Thursday. Everything was well packed, so there was no Damage not even on the flexible tracks. Thanks

Recently purchased the Oxford/Hattons ICI hoppers 1990’s weathered version, and was surprised to find a representation of the removed ICI letters on panels 2,4 and 6, not on central panels 3,4 and 5. When asked about it, Anthony sent me photographic evidence! Can’t complain about that, but does anybody else think it highly unusual? Weren’t the letters always on panels 3,4. And 5?

My order was delt with promptly. It was dispatched promptly and arrived safely by Royal Mail. The items I received were robustly packed and were exactly as described on the Internet.

I've used Hatton's several times and always found them well-Priced, responsive and efficient. Online orders are dealt with the same day, with emails keeping you informed about their progress. This even applied to a locomotive I had DCC-Fitted, which came with a comprehensive information sheet detailing the process - Very useful. I've never yet failed to find what I wanted, and browsing the website usually turns up stuff I didn't know I needed!

Oskar , Sundbyberg - 17 Sep 2018 - Five Stars
Placed an order for a locomotive with them after inquiring about overseas shipping, having missed that page of the website. Their reply was quick, polite, and very helpful. The price for the model was fair, and the shipping quick. Highly recommended.

The shop has a large selection of all gauges loco and rolling stock in stock and on show,there is also a selection of second hand good's in stock. And last but by no means least a selection of bargain priced items

I offered my now unwanted OO gauge collection to Hattons. Their purchasing process was perfect. The most efficient sale I have ever entered and thoroughly recommended.

Bill , New Zealand - 24 Aug 2018 - Five Stars
I have been purchasing products from Hatton's for some years now and thought it was long overdue that I should pass on some comments regarding this company. Simply brilliant! Comes to mind. With their weekly email updates, notifications regarding new products arriving soon etc together with an excellent overseas order service with items arriving safely and well packaged. I want to pass on my sincere thanks to Christine and her team for offering such a well organized friendly business that keeps me coming back. Thank you.

I have been dealing with Hattons for several years, I have always found them to be very good, deliveries within two days of ordering, which is excellent. I have just ventured into sound on my last loco order for the first time, but having a problem with my eyesight, I decided to let Hattons fit the sound decoder for me, and what a great job they did. It worked strait out of the box, also came with a sheet of numbers for each function which was a big help. Thank you Hattons.

Steve , Oxfordshire - 02 Aug 2018 - Five Stars
Had a slight problem with a recent order for a curved single track level crossing; two of the four gate hanging posts were missing from the delivered package. I submitted a request for the two missing posts late one night, and within ten minutes of Hattons opening the next day, received an acknowledgement by email (Personal, not automatically generated) and a promise to send the two posts. They duly arrived with a couple of days. Really excellent support service! And because of support of that quality, I will continue to give my business (Ostensibly, I am building a layout - Known as GWR - Grandad's Working Railway - For my grandchildren!) to Hattons.

Phil , Poole, Dorset - 24 Jul 2018 - Four & a half Stars
I recently bought a Bachmann tank loco with a 6-Pin DCC decoder. After running-In the loco I fitted the decoder only to find it would not reprogram from the default loco ID of 3. I sent an email to Hattons who replied immediately with a solution of a different decoder as the original was incompatible with my controller. The whole episode was resolved in just a few days and now the loco is fully programmable. Excellent customer service! Very happy customer.
