1941 Winteringham Ltd and Trix formed Precision Models to take over the production of the Trix range of model railways.

1942 Trix took a controlling interest in Precision Models and effectively separated the former Winteringham factory from Bassett-Lowke’s control.

1953 W. J. Bassett-Lowke resigned from the boards of both Trix and Precision Models.

1957 The Trix group was bought by Ewart Holdings. From then, both Trix and Precision Models had a completely new board of Directors and a fresh start was feasible.

1958 Trix and Precision Models were acquired by Dufay
