Resin Building Kits
Due to my resin casters wife being seriously ill at the moment, all resin kit production is on hold for the next couple of weeks, until we know what the longer term situation will be. Any orders placed during this time, will be on hold until the situation becomes clearer.

Our catalogue

Our catalogue has the following sections. To browse all the castings in each section, click on the section's title, otherwise just click on the subsection you're interested in.

Buildings
The buildings are based on past or present railway prototypes. They are not meant to be 100% accurate copies of the original. They do, however, closely follow the prototype and are designed to reflect the character, look, style and size of the original. The kits are complete with glazing and accessories and require only adhesives and paint to complete.

Most of our models are constructed from resin castings produced from hand-finished moulds. Windows, doors, etc. are mainly cast in resin but in certain cases will use stone cast plaster, etched brass or whitemetal castings. Further details regarding individual buildings are shown in the lists below. Highland Castings now manufacture the building kits under their own name. The kits will continue to be sold through Invertrain Model Railways. Please note that kit numbers have changed from lists prior to August 2001.
