Usual excellent service with very friendly and helpful staff. In addition the Hattons Trunk facility is a brilliant way to secure items, whilst awaiting manufacturer delivery of pre-ordered items.

The ordering of NINE of Hattons Class 66s for my extensive collection , has become nothing short of a disaster. Only three have operated at the time of writing, straight from the box. One arrived in a sound box as paid for, but was DCC ready only. Model could not be replaced, sold out, with full refund received. Other problems, lighting issues, wheel wobble and decoder failure. There are too many comments on social media, regarding the quality issues. With sound models costing £265, you expect trouble free models. Having 34 Bachmann Class 66s, the odd problem, when they arise, are insignificant.

This was my first order from Hattons, the service was first class and the parcel arrived sooner than expected. I will certainly be placing more orders.

I have used Hatton's about 4 times now, always a fast service. Our grandson loves trains and I have a layout in loft for him. We are on a budget and it is great to be able to buy pre-owned with confidence as Hattons give a detailed description of item and we have never been disappointed with any purchase. Very highly recommended

From receiving the email that a certain centenary little loco was now in stock, to placing the order yesterday and opening it this morning. Wow that is great service. Thank you.

I had ordered a loco decoder from another retailer in May. On June, I asked when I might receive it I was told it was in stock and someone would call back. Five days later (Wednesday), I called again. Someone would call back that day. Two days later, called again. No item in stock and it is discontinued. On Wednesday, I ordered a loco decoder from Hattons. It arrived today (Friday). Such excellent service Just an observation and certainly not a criticism. The decoder, which would fit inside a cigarette packet, arrived in a box not much smaller than a shoe box. It was certainly well packaged. Thank you Hattons
