Dream Steam was started in 2008 by Alan Dunster. The business began by bringing together the manufacture and supply of upgrades for the original Mamod live steam loco and IP Engineering Jane with the supply of the current incarnation of the original Mamod design of locos, rolling stock, track and spares, which are now made by MSS in Wales.
Feedback from customers suggested that those new to the hobby found most other general garden railway supplier websites confusing and not very user friendly from the beginner's point of view. So we set about establishing a reputation as the on-line specialists for garden railway beginners. We carefully chose and extended the range of locos and rolling stock, based on value for money, ease of use and reliability. We then presented them in a logical and clear format that made it easy to find and purchase.
In Late 2010 Paul Fletcher joined forces with Alan to take Dream Steam forward with more resources and production capacity.
August 2011 Alan Dunster left Dream Steam to concentrate on other business interests. The company is now solely owned by the Fletcher family, Paul, Ruth and Paul Senior.
Summer 2012 Dream Steam are proud to announce that we have become a stockist for Mamod locomotives.
Throughout 2013 Dream Steam has consistently grown and introduced new products, this includes new rolling stock from MSS and new fixings and fastenings.
Future plans, In 2014 you will see an introduction of many more products, from new and exciting suppliers! We are also moving premises which allows us to stock a wider range of products and will even allow our customers the opportunity to come and see us.
The Dream Steam range now caters for beginners and established modellers on all budgets, and there is more to come!.
