Tenshodo motor bogies (again)

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Hi all
I have a few exhibitions fast approaching for my new GN18 layout and I need to purchase a couple of Tenshodo 31mm bogies. Who is the best/cheapest supplier nowadays?

thanks chaps

I would recommend Branchlines Nick, used them several times recently, quick, fast and reliable.

No, they dont have an online shop, not that I know of anyway.
Their contact details can be found here though, I think they are still current, even though the blog has not been updated recently

If you get no luck at Branchlines then Mainly Trains are very good and they were the cheapest when I ordered. I don't have any connection with them other than a long time satisfied customer.

I'm looking for that decrepit look. What, I just need to look in the mirror?

I needed another 24.5 Tenshodo Spud and Howard Martin of Avalon Models recommended Branchlines - it's where he gets his from. I ordered it by phone yesterday morning and it arrived in the mail this lunchtime - how's that for fantastic service! It's also cheaper than on most of the model shop web sites I found with Google by a significant amount.

One very satisfied customer :D
