Welcome to the Strathpeffer Junction shop. UK shipping for OO Gauge ringfield adaptor kit orders is £2.99, irrespective of how many are purchased. We also ship to Ireland, mainland Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand (postage to the USA has regrettably doubled in price due to the US government's new tariffs).

Dispatch Schedule
Like most people, we had hoped that 2021 would herald in move back towards 'normal', but once again we are subject to a lockdown and access to shops and services is limited. We will have to stick to our twice weekly (Tuesday & Friday) dispatch schedule for most orders for the time being, however due to the size of the packaging required for O gauge motor kits, snow plough weights kits or mugs, we can only use a post office counter and, as we are reliant on a mobile post office for that service (and it only comes to our village once per week), we regret that orders including any of those items can only be despatched on Tuesdays at 12.30pm. As ever, thank you indeed for your customer, support and understanding.

EU Orders
As a result of Brexit, orders placed from the EU may now be liable for import VAT where the total value is over €22. Whether or not a charge is applied will be down to local customs in your country. I can only apologise for any additional costs, but nonetheless thank you for sticking with me - I really appreciate you supporting my work.

This is a must-have item for every railway modeller or photography enthusiast. It is an industrial version of blu-tac and far stronger, which awesome sticking power. It gets stickier the more it’s worked and can be reused multiple times.

It provides a permanent yet easily reversible fixing for DCC decoders, wiring, cab and directional light installations, DCC sound upgrades, sealing speakers enclosures, weights and ballast, and any number of other modelling uses.

It is non-toxic and specially formulated so it can be left in place for several hours without leaving any residues when it is removed (although we don’t recommend that it’s left on the outside of models or equipment for more than a couple of days to avoid marks from extended use).

Instructions

Black tack can be used immediately, but for best results, work it between your fingers for a few minutes before use. For full strength, you may have to knead it a lot more than you would for normal blu-tac. You know it is ready when it becomes almost too sticky to get off your fingers.
