Loco-notion Models was founded in 1994 by David Young in a very small way indeed, trading at Toyfairs and Swapmeets around the South-East with second hand model railway models and new scenics & accessories from small manufacturers. A few years later He opened a shop at Cliffe in Lewes which was closed after 18 months as it was losing money ( lovely shop - wrong location, no passing trade whatsoever). It may have done him a small favour as it was submerged in the heavy floods the following year. He then moved on to a workshop in Hove nr Brighton and back on the Exhibition and Toyfair scene. He ceased trading for one year when family health problems arose but then decided to open part-time in a tiny shop near where he lived in Peacehaven and see how it went. This resulted in a move to slightly larger premises later that year, and was very happy there for over 10 years. However further family health problems meant a move to Weston Super Mare in 2010 with the shop in Peacehaven closing. Had a small shop in Weston for a couple of years but over retirement age and family health matters intervened.

David was the owner of Loconotion Models and has spent many years of hard work to build it up until retirement and Care issues intervened. He is a wealth of Railway and Narrow Gauge Information. He has a special interest in Narrow gauge and Southern Railway. David is a very keen model maker and is always happy to help out new modellers or just have a chat about railways! He collects N, 009 and 16mm railways also many odd bits and pieces of Large scale narrow gauge. David also had a small garden railway when he lived in Peacehaven with his wife, cat and 2 dogs. Now in a flat in Weston Super Mare with Lesley, a cat called Luna (or you little s*d) tropical fish and no room for a model railway:(
