An exception to this are the order details, which by law are retained for a period of 6 years for accounting purposes. All payment details are held by our payment gateway providers. This is currently through SumUp but may change in future. You are reminded to check this page regularly for any changes, as we reserve the right to make changes to our policy, without prior notice throughout the term of our business.

Data will be shared with agencies where their primary purpose is law enforcement, including the enforcement of a safe working and protected working environment for any volunteers helping us in our business adventures. Abusive behaviour is not tolerated. Any information given freely to ourselves maybe used where deemed appropriate subject to UK law by our associate trading company or the Charity.

All our payments are taken through the use of the payment gateway SumUp.

We only receive confirmation of, or failure notifications for any sale transaction handled, through SumUp by an email notification to confirm the sale and aid the processing of a sale order. 

Our Pre-Order policy: -

Please note all advertised models where Pre-Orders have been made available, will be arriving in due course. All models prior to TNBUS1 and MMC2 will be handled by the original team, in line with our revised terms and conditions.

Pre-Order costs and postage discounts for multiple orders offered at the time of ordering prior to Transport Nostalgia handling sales will be honoured in full. This relates to already released WSD1/MMC1/CP44101/CP46401 (all variants) and ES-White. In addition it applies to Pre-Orders of WSD2/OM1/OM3 and the GNE Solo SR - so no need to message us as contact will be made upon the postage of these items in due course. 

Please message us if we can help with any questions or concerns not answered here. 

Pre-released orders (“Pre-orders”) are orders for products (“Products”) that are not yet available for general sale from ourselves. A Pre-Order will show as such within the items sale listing. In order to place a Pre-order, you will need to provide certain information, including but not limited to your name, address and billing information. It is your responsibility to ensure this information is accurate and up to date.  If we do not have accurate information, we will not be able to keep you informed. With some product where orders are received from Far Eastern countries through which our manufacturers do not permit us to supply, as an element of stock is retained for sale directly by themselves, we will cancel and refund the pre-order within 3 working days. 


Pre-Order Payments

Pre-order payments do not guarantee availability of the Product but represent your offer (“Offer”) to buy the Product when it is generally released for sale.  We reserve the right not to accept your Offer and the your Offer is only accepted once the Pre-ordered product is despatched. 

When you place a Pre-order you will need to pay the full upfront price of the Product. A customer will only be permitted to hold a maximum of £600 of pre-order product with us, with further orders cancelled without prior permission to purchase being granted through a request via our contact page.  You may cancel your Pre-order and get a full refund of your Pre-order Payments at any time before the Product has been despatched.


Pre-Order Delivery

Where possible, orders will be shipped to you or be ready for collection as soon as is practicable, subject to availability. For some areas delivery may take longer. (Please see our shipment policy for further details). Release dates are subject to change. As a result, we cannot be liable for any changes to Release dates or Pre-order windows advertised by us in good faith.


Pre-Order Cancellation

Either party may cancel a Pre-order at any time for any or no reason prior to our notice to you that the Product has been despatched (“Despatch Notice”). If cancellation occurs before the Despatch Notice, you will be entitled to a full refund by way of our preferred method - a credit voucher, by email to the value of your Pre-order payment. There is an exception to our refund policy relating to any model where a charitable donation is given to any registered Charity upon the placing of the Pre-Order. An example of this is OM3, the Cancer Research model where we donate £5 from every sale to the Charity through a giving page - more detail on this is shown on the sale listing with the link available to cut and paste to view the fundraiser instigated upon release of this Pre-Order. Any customer cancelling a Pre-Order will not be permitted to order the same item again as a new order. We are aware of past instances whereby orders have been cancelled with fellow model providers simply to release funds, with the customer returning to place an identical order again within days. As we are not legally allowed to withhold payment processing fees we cannot allow this practice to take place hence our restrictions on return orders and credit voucher refunds being our preference. 


Additional conditions

The purchase of the Product maybe subject to additional terms and conditions, which will be notified to you before you complete your purchase, in your order confirmation. When you buy from our online shop, our online shop purchasing terms will also apply as detailed through other policy conditions highlighted on this page.
