Aristocraft started in 1983 and since creates a range of innovative off-the-shelf, ride-on scale rolling stock.
This filled a void in the market and started a trend which has flourished, until today when scale ride-on rolling stock can be seen on many miniature railways throughout the country.
Aristocraft has led the market since its inception, has produced most of the commercial stock and has no doubt been an inspiration for others to follow.
Aristocraft have also built many industrial models, including a 7.1/4" gauge Travelling Post Office coach, complete with working mail delivery and pick-up apparatus which was commissioned by the Post Office has been on display in the National Railway Museum, York, as the centrepiece of the '150 Years of Mail by Rail' exhibition. Other models have been of ships which adorn the offices and board rooms of many shipping companies.
