A Message from Dave…. The Evolution of Gas Cupboard Models

In 2006 I was in a position to do something I had wanted to do for some time and in April 2007 in partnership, Gas Cupboard Models & Hobbies opened the doors in Westbury, Wiltshire, concentrating on model railways and RC.

The Gas Cupboard grew steadily over the next four years, building good relationships with local and national model and hobby clubs and organisations.  In 2011 we decided to move to bigger premises a few miles down the A350 to Trowbridge and in July Gas Cupboard Models & Hobbies moved to Castle Street in Trowbridge.

By November 2012 my business partner and I had amicably decided to part. It was agreed that I would keep the Gas Cupboard name and move to our current address in St Georges Works in Trowbridge.

With the enthusiastic and abundant help to set up the shop the new Gas Cupboard Models opened the doors to a new era on 8th December 2012.

Now more focused as primarily a model railway shop I hope that you will be able to call in soon to see us. If you cant make it to Trowbridge, we look forward to offering you the same excellent service and help via the online shop. 

Thank you

Rachael & Dan

With expert help and assistance from
