As most of you will already know, both my Mum & Dad Marilyn & Tony, sadly passed away towards the end
of 2018.

Thus I begin this message with a very warm hello to all my past, present & future customers.


I appreciate most of you will be left wondering what happens next, in regards to Coopertrains.
So if you could please take a moment to read the message below, it will explain how the business will be affected.

Well, I am very happy to report that for the most part, it will be business as usual here at Coopertrains, with the exception of the following services:

All sales of spares are still currently suspended. However, I will be adding the spares I am able to keep supplying, back onto the website in due course. Please note: This does not include Track, switches and any associated items. However, there will now be a mimimum order of £20.

In the meantime, please contact my friend & colleague Mick Turner for all your future Spares enquiries here

All repairs and requests for repairs can longer be accepted (to include servicing). Unfortunately, this will be a permanent measure.

However, please contact my friend & colleague Dennis Williams, for all your future Repairs & Spares needs here

All Coopertrains 'Hornby Dublo Style' Sets/Locos/Coaches/Wagons & Accessories, to include future projects are currently on hold for the moment. (Please note: This is a purely temporary measure, based on current time constraints). However, I will be completing the projects my dad & I set out to do, I assure you of that!


So, with the exception of the above, all other aspects of the business, to include the continued supply of all Binns Road Hornby Dublo products, will carry on as usual. I will also be continuing the invaluable service of offering my Dad's full range of Hornby Dublo Replica Boxes... All contact details will remain the same and I'm happy to report that 26 Warmden Avenue, will still remain Coopertrains HQ...

If I could still ask for your continued patience, as currently it may take longer than usual to complete your order. After all, I only have one pair of hands now and in short, it's still taking a good while to get back up and running to the same 'high standard' that you all expect from the Cooper name.

Lastly, I no longer have the facilities to accept payment via debit/credit cards. (Again, this is a temporary measure, as in time I will reinstate the facility). I realise that it must have become quite the habit, when making cheques payable to K A Cooper, or Coopertrains. However, please could I ask you to make all future cheques/Postal Orders made payable to D Cooper.

Thank you all for taking the time to read this and once again, for your continued support and patience.

Very Best Wishes to you all from Darren & Boots...

Most of you will also be aware of the Replica Boxes we have produced since 1984. Again, I must stress, these are Litho-Printed and not photocopied, hence as close to the originals as possible. All the boxes we produce are listed on the website in our shop.

Finally, we are always interested in purchasing your surplus or unwanted Hornby Dublo, Wrenn, Triang, Trix, Hornby & Bachmann Model Railway items, so please don't hesitate to contact us

A very warm welcome and thank you for taking the time to view our website, the Coopertrains family...
