Simply Southern was formed by the father and son partnership of Rodney and Ashley Hammond. Ashley is a keen modeller in Southern outline and was frustrated by the lack of choice offered in the goods trucks and coaches for SR running being offered by the existing companies. Rodney had taken early retirement and decided there was a demand that needed to be serviced and so Simply Southern was born.
It is our intention to build up our range so that any Southern modeller can start off with a wide and outline-correct range of trucks, made by DAPOL. Our introduction of some other company liveries is designed to be a fun element (we intend catering for the Polegate Treacle Mine fans) but nonetheless stock will be accurate for period running. We welcome feedback and would ask you to contact us with any help, ideas, suggestions or requests.
