The latest retailer to win the coveted Bachmann Retailer of the Year Award is Jackson’s Models & Railways of Wigton, Cumbria and the Jackson’s team were recently presented with the shield by members of the Bachmann Europe Sales Team.

Established in 2000, Jackson’s started out as an online only retailer of diecast models. Seeing the opportunity for growth, owner Brenda Jackson opened the Model Shop based in Wigton, Cumbria in 2005. The rest, as they say, is history and over the past 18 years this family-run business has gone from strength to strength. The store provides a wonderful shopping experience for modellers of all interests – with a keen eye on customer service and a successful online store serving customers from all over the world.
