What does she mean by 'family before n gauge'  ??? ???


@Merrylee
I'm quite sure she meant you to put the family in the shed and the layout in the comfiest, warmest room but I suggest you do not seek clarification as your survival to enjoy your Pendos may depend on it :uneasy: :uneasy:

She means that she would like to go and see the real ones so that the whole family can appreciate the outstanding model when it arrives, that way the whole family will have a full understanding as to why the bank account is empty, food is cup o soups and noodles everyday, but you are content playing with silly trains

All gone now. I'm amazed how quickly they've all sold.

Thanks to everyone who bought one. I'll try to process all the discounts tomorrow.

Cheers Mike

PS there will be a much smaller number available after we've sent out all orders. We don't know exactly which sets yet.

Cheers M

Staggeringly quick, thankfully removed temptation before I weakened and bought just one more

How to harness the enthusiasm and push the 321 / 321 over the line?

Hi all,

I am absolutely staggered to see that all the City of Birmingham models had gone by 1707 today!

I hope everyone who ordered and helped make this project happen - from plan B at the start to CoB in the last 24 hours - is feeling, as I am, the shared excitement of being part of something very special!

Cheers

Ben A.
