I am, on behalf of the Star Tugs Company Ltd, owners of the models and props formerly associated with the 1980s TV Series, TUGS, produced by Clearwater Features, the original team behind Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends.
The models were built to specifications which were thought to constitute feature film quality. Over the past three years, we have toured the country extensively with the models, being hosted at various Heritage Railway centres, a Canal Festival and particularly fun – the Steam Tug Brent in Maldon, Essex. However, Star Tugs Company Ltd have recently achieved our long-term goal of opening a purpose-furnished exhibition facility in which to display the models on a long-term basis, and will be holding our annual major event between 27th and 29th of August 2016 at our new home at Midland Railway Centre, Butterley at Ripley in Derbyshire.
We hope our display would be of interest to Sea Breezes readers. For more information / images, we have a Facebook page and official website, which can be found at the following links: www.seansi3d.wix.com/thestartugs www.facebook.com/TheStarTugsTrust
