Martin. Thanks for the positive comments - I never realised quite how much gnashing of teeth and frustration might go into the development of the web-site, but it is gradually getting there!

The Bilteezi backscenes do still exist, just about, but will probably not be reprinted again. The 'N; range is still complete, but most of the 'OO' ones disappeared years ago - and no original artwork exists. We still have Sheet 3&4 (double) - "Woodland stream and cottage" , 5, 6 - "seascapes", and 7&8 (double) - "Village". The unusual size of the sheets, and the problems associated with printing anything of that size, makes it rather unlikely that any of the others will ever be reprinted, but then, never say never, as they say!

The backscene sheets are not yet on the web-site, as you discovered, but will make it up there in due course.

Hi Jerry,I was wondering if you still have any remaining stock of these backscenes?

I do not know if they are still in production or if you are intending future production but I cannot find them

in your online shop.I am particularly interested in the rural seaside,village and fields type sheets but I am sure  all the sheets would be welcomed by modellers who can remember this fantastic range which so perfectly complimented their buildings.I my humble opinion these have never been surpassed in terms of quality of artwork.I do hope they will be available again even if they are not currently in your lists?

Website and online shop are very good and user friendly.Keep up the good work!

PS:Are you attending any Northern shows in the near future,Manchester for example?
