Model Railway Parts



Rodger & Christina Cullen wish to advise that we have sold the North Yard Model Railway Parts business.  This has taken effect from Friday 9th July 2021.  During the next two weeks the business will transition from our premises to the new owners. 

Any emails or enquiries from the 10th of July 2021 will be dealt with by the new owners once they are set up for business.  We ask for your patience during this transitional period of approximately two weeks, during which time the email address and website will be moved over and may not be attended to.

Once North Yard is setup in its new home, the new owners will contact existing customers and continue with the North Yard business

When handover is complete the new owners can be contacted using the North Yard email addresses: sales@northyard.co.nz and northyard@xtra.co.nz

All items currently available in the North Yard range including Locomotive Drive Mechanisms, wheels axles & bearings, NZR Locomotive bogies, gearboxes, driveshafts and universals joints, bushings, bearings & flywheels, Brass Detailed Parts, Romford axles and the Serv-O-Link range will be available from the new owners.

Rodger & Christina will continue to trade as SOUTH DOCK MODELS, our kit making business, producing quality NZR wagon kits.  Added to the South Dock Models range will be the NZR paint range (previously branded North Yard) along with brass wire, screws and fastenings. South Dock Models can be contacted on: sales@southdock.co.nz and our website is: www.southdock.co.nz

We wish to thank our North Yard customers and suppliers for their support over the past 11 years and especially over the past 18 months during which time personal health issues have meant that we have been unable to attend to enquiries as quickly as we would have liked.

For many of you we will still be in contact through South Dock Models and look forward to catching up with you in the future.

We wish the new owners success with their new North Yard business.

Best regards,

Rodger & Christina Cullen
