Pictured with Theo, Kevin and Christopher travelled from their North Western Models HQ in Cheshire down to the ICC in the heart of Birmingham for the day and what a day it was! After a meeting and discussion with Mr Paphitis regarding the start up, development, success and future of their business, Kevin and Christopher had the opportunity to meet with fellow Dragon, Deborah Meaden, as well as John Mills, the owner of the popular JML brand of high street products for further business talks and advice. There was also chance to network with other local small business winners from around the UK and to share products, experiences and advice within their field of expertise.

About North Western Models


At North Western Models we believe that it’s the detail that brings a model railway to life.

North Western Models was established in 2015 by Kevin Colley and Christopher Gore as an online model shop based in Stockport, Cheshire. Initially dealing with high quality detailing accessories and kits, North Western Models prides itself in serving the model railway community to promote the notion that detailing helps to bring a model railway to life.

Kevin and Christopher have a lifelong passion with railways in general and also with model railways. Between them, they have planned, built and exhibited a number of layouts in 00 and N gauge at various local model shows. Kevin and Christopher regularly attend a number of exhibitions each year, either trading as North Western Models or with one of their layouts which is currently on the exhibition circuit.
