"Watch all the action from the West Coastway Line next to our HQ", says the retailer upon its new partnership with live stream provider.
Model retailer, Gaugemaster has partnered with the UK's leading provider of live lineside and scenic railway cameras, Railcam. Visitor's to the Arundel-based shop's website can now watch live video feeds from the West Coastway Line which runs adjacent to its shop.
Gaugemaster said: "We are fortunate to be located right next to a busy railway line. Why fortunate? Firstly, it enables colleagues and customers to visit us using public transport which is both environmentally friendly (and avoids the torturous A27 at Arundel) but is also accessible to most.
"Secondly, the real thing is the best inspiration for what we sell – model railways. Many of our customers love the real railways as well as model ones, so it makes sense to work together wherever we can.
"We are already a Community Station Partner at Ford station and today we begin a partnership with Railcam Live so you’ll be able to watch all the action from the West Coastway Line next to our HQ whenever you like. We hope this will inspire our customers with their own model railway worlds. We're the model shop for big imaginations and are big in small things. And sometimes big things too."
Railcam, in addition to live video feeds from around the network also provides visitors to its website with live signalling diagrams, schedules, and user-sourced allocation information.
