Ray's Rails will now be closed on selected Saturdays throughout the year, as we will be supporting and trading at local model railway exhibitions and shows.

Next event Saturday 28th June - Braintree Model Railway Exhibition. More details on our events page.




Well we are starting into our second year of trading here at Ray's Rails. We are continually learning from experience what our customers require, so we have now set up an Online Shop. Woooo hooo I hear you shout! Well, have a browse but bear in mind it has only just started and it's taking a while to add all the thousands of items that railway modellers require. We will be continuously updating and adding on a daily basis. I've tried to make it as user friendly as possible but please donít hesitate to call the shop if you require something you can't see. Just click on Online Shop in the menu above.

Payments online:

If you do not have a PayPal account and would like to pay by Credit/Debit card you can still do so via the paypal checkout. On the Checkout page, when you reach Step 5 - Payment Method, select PayPal and then continue. When you have confirmed your order (which is Step 6) you will arrive at the PayPal payment page. Click on the link that says Pay with a debit or credit card and fill in your details to complete the payment process. If you have any problems, call the shop during opening hours or you can email at any time.
