Lanky Kits provides a range of 7mm kits for fans of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway


I have decided to take a Holiday from Lanky Kits for a few months.  I am no longing taking any new orders.  Only items listed on the web-site will be available.  I will be back at Stafford Show in Sept 2023.

I am needing to catch up with a backlog of orders, sort out several new suppliers.  I have also been extremely stressed over the last two years over something that I had no control over; fortunately this is starting to resolve itself.

Thanks for your understanding ~ Andrew WH ~ 2nd June 2023

Please note that Lanky Kits is a service that is being provided by my-self for modellers of the LYR in 7mm, and is therefore separate from the main society. For details of the "Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Society" please click on
