Since then, LRM has grown to provide one of the largest ranges of etched kits available to the 4mm modeller. The emphasis is on the pre-grouping period up to 1923, although the prototypes for many of the models in the range lasted into the post-grouping era of the 1930’s, with a significant number surviving into BR ownership.

 London Road Models is, like many other well known model railway specialist suppliers, a part time business. Some of the recently introduced kits have been designed by other modellers who have an interest in the particular prototypes and experience of designing etched kits, but the production, packing and despatch of customer orders for this wide range of kits is handled entirely by John Redrup, during his spare time from his normal job.

 Since 1992, a number of other makes of 4mm kits have been absorbed into the London Road Models range. These include:-

 George Norton’s Connoisseurs range of locos and carriages.

Iain Rice’s Riceworks GER and NBR locomotives.

Planit Engineering NSR tank locos.

D&S LNWR NPCS vans and brake vans.

Bob Williams ‘Aylesbury’ LNWR Samson 2-4-0 and trolley wagon kits.

Steve Barnfield’s etched NER/LNER loco kits.

Derek Munday 4mm scale horsebox & van kits.
