My name is Paul Leadley and I setup and run the APT-E Conservation & Support Group which has been slowly restoring APT-E at Locomotion, Shildon since the year 2000.
I have started designing and 3D printing my own PLA+ model kits, mostly of items that you cannot obtain from anywhere else.

I specialise in APT (Advanced passenger train) and RTC items.

I also offer a bespoke design and printing service, if you need an item and can supply drawings or a collection of photos I can see what I can do for you.

Mr Tilt (Kit Spackman) of APT-E and RMweb fame also has input into many of my model designs so they should be pretty close to the real thing.
