North Yard is operated on a part-time basis. All orders and queries are attended to as soon as is possible.  We are retail and wholesale suppliers.



COVID-19 – North Yard and South Dock will remain operating during the COVID-19 lockdown for as long as possible.  We will endeavour to fill orders with stock available.  Some items may have to be back-ordered due to the closure of external manufacturers.  If we have it in stock, we can supply it.  However, an update, we are now at the mercy of courier services under the heading of non-essential business, so pick up of items is totally at their ability to do so which means there may be delays in getting product to you!



At times we are away from the workshop and there may be a delay in response to your order or query, you can email us to check on your order status.



We will be away from the workshop attending the following train shows during 2020, we will respond to your email as soon as we can upon return to workshop, ( email us:  northyard@xtra.co.nz )
