Order Processing Update

At present we are generally despatching orders where all items are in stock within 7 days of receipt. Where some of the items on an order are not in stock, we usually hold the order until all items are in stock and despatch the complete order in a single consignment.

We are aware that orders to overseas addresses are still taking much longer than usual to reach their destination. Please also note that due to additional costs arising from the Covid-19 pandemic and the reduced availability of international flights, we are trying to consolidate orders to overseas destinations. Where one or more items are temporarily out of stock, we will hold orders for dispatch until all items are in stock. This may cause a slight delay in dispatch of some orders, for which we apologise.

Customers in the European Union are also advised to read our Trade with the EU page for more information about taxes and charges that may be payable at the point of delivery.

Subscribers to either of our monthly magazines – Today’s Railways UK and Today’s Railways Europe are eligible for exclusive subscriber discounts on a range of items from our Mail Order Department. To set up your online Subscriber Account simply send an email to orders@platform5.com

The rules for trade between the UK and the EU have changed. Orders placed for delivery to addresses in the EU are likely to be subject to additional taxes and charges at the point of delivery. We strongly advise customers in the EU to read our Trade with the EU page for more information.
