About DJM


Hello and welcome to my website.

Some of you will know me by my past endeavours with a well known model railway company, but really I should use this space to tell you about myself.

I’ve been a modeller since I was a very young lad with an OO gauge Hornby loco on an oval of track stuck on a door for a Christmas present. Subsequently nurtured by my dad, my skills became better, to such an extent that when I switched to N gauge around 1975 I started, as a 10 year old, exhibiting my layouts up and down the country. In 1982 I won the inaugural ‘Prime Ministers Cup’ as the best under 18 modeller in the country.

Subsequently I made architectural and loco models as a small business until around 2005 when I was asked my opinion on a new N gauge class 73, and the rest as they say, is history.

So why do this now? Well for some time I have felt that there can be a large step change again in quality, reliability, detail and features on current N, OO and O gauge locomotives and rolling stock.

Unlike some critics on web forums, I decided to put my money where my mouth is, literally, and go it alone with this venture.

It will not ever be a huge range, but what I will say is that whatever I produce, it will have all my hallmarks on every model,.

To get a better understanding of my experience, please look here for the models and innovations i am solely responsible for….

Past Models

I expect to be able to give better communications, sales service, after sales service and back up than any of the current manufacturers today.

However, please be aware that i will only post to this website, and send mail newsletters to customers who have either ordered products or ‘expressed and interest’ in my products. I will, of course, update the web site after 2 or so weeks to allow those who have ‘expressed’ to digest the newsletter first (A perk of being a customer, if you will).

If you want to get in touch please do so and I will do my best to answer personally. But please bear with me if I take a while to get back to you as I am bound to get busy at times. info@djmodels.co.uk

Thank you.
