The AGR Model Railway Store of High Street Mews, High Street, Leighton Buzzard LU7 1EA, has received its exclusive batch of OO9-gauge wagon models labelled ‘Arnold’s Sands’ of Leighton Buzzard that were especially commissioned from Peco Limited – but if you want one you’ll need to hurry, as they are selling fast at £16.95 each.
One of Leighton Buzzard’s former principal sand-quarrying firms, J Arnold & Sons was established by John Arnold (1816-1880) who began to quarry sand in Heath & Reach around 1860.
The firm went on to produce more than 40 different grades of sand that were used in foundry work, glass-making, water and sewage plant filtration, horticulture, building cement and all kinds of sand blasting.
