It is with deep regret that we advise of the passing of the gentleman behind ModelTorque, Graham Rooke, shortly before Christmas 2012.
ModelTorque has now ceased trading and is no longer accepting any orders. All persons that had made orders from Christmas 2012 onwards should have been contacted by now explaining what has happened.
The future of the ModelTorque product range is uncertain at this time, and any decisions regarding it will be made in the coming months.
Any person that has a genuine need to contact ModelTorque can do so by sending an email to Your browser does not support scripting or scripting has been turned off. Scripting support is required to see our email addresses
Frivolous enquiries will be ignored.
Update 9 May 2013
The Lima, Hornby & Fleischmann repower ranges are now in the hands of former ModelTorque distributor Train Technology (www.traintechnology.com | www.modeltorque.eu) in Belgium. Train Technology is assessing what they can do to bring back the range. Any enquiries regarding the current status should be directed to them.
For anyone desperate for a Lima repower kit, we have come across a rip off version* of the Lima kit from a specialist online retailer in the UK. No, we will not give you the url, we are just that impressed.
* This is the opinion of the writer of this page and in no way represents the view of any surviving ModelTorque relatives.
