15 mths ago talks to take over C&L fell through and potentially we were in the situation we are now with Exactoscale looking for sales outlets, Phil stepped in at very short notice.

Phil would be the first person to hold his hands up and admit to the mistakes he made. Not all of the issues were down to him or within his control, he has learnt the hard way and solved most of the issues.

But for the past 3 years we have been aware of the pending problems, firstly knowing C&L (Bristol) was closing for business in June 2017. Most of us built up stock incase there were issues

Next we were warned at the end of April 2018 that in 3 months time C&L were loosing the Exactoscale agency and that there would be a period that the track parts would be unavailable. See one of my posts at that time !!

Phil has invested his savings into C&L and intends to develop the business and as it happens the range of track parts

Mr Dukes has decided to take back control (selling and marketing) of the Exactoscale range including some items which are not currently available. Once we have two suppliers back in the market we have the competition many have been hoping for.

At this moment the only parts available are from C&L, the societies who still hold some limited Exactoscale parts) and the Peco range, and I am certain that Peco has kept a foothold in this marked for a reason. The only hiccup is the societies (EMGS) are out of most of the special chairs, which is a tiny part of the business which had very low sales figures. I should know as I have been loosing a battle to get modellers to use them and seen the quantity that sold at shows.

I much rather have the problems of a slow mail order system than loose the entire range for ever
