Yep. It's sort of open except the electricity folks helpfully decided to celebrate opening day with a power cut. Things will now begin to show in stock but it'll take time to unpack and file it all so probably components will begin to appear and then kits as I find all the parts.

So the advice is keep checking the site until what your after is in stock?

I, like others I suspect, have a shopping list and nearly everything on it is 'out of stock' on the site currently.  :(

Yep. As I put stuff away and sort it I add it to the shop list.

You might want to reload the page with shift held just in case it's cached the old one if you are desperate!

Whee that was fun. Just what you want when you are down the basement packing kits - an earthquake.

A 4.2M earthquake across the SouthWest, South Wales and the Midlands apparently.

Don't.

I was in our lounge some years ago watching TV in the wee small hours when the last major (for the UK) earthquake hit. We live on a ridge outside Hook Norton in North Oxfordshire. The thing I wouldn't have expected was the noise, for all the world it sounded like a large unlaiden tipper lorry was bouncing across the front garden about to come through the front wall of the house. Then the house vibrated quite violently. The wife bellowed down the stairs "I don't know what you're doing down there but pack it in I'm trying hard sleep". She took a fair bit of convincing that it was nothing to do with me.

I now have a lot more sympathy with people who go through a "proper" earthquake. The one we had was scary enough.

When we had the quake that brought down buildings in Newcastle, NSW in the 1980s (there were falalites), we had just had a house extension built. I thought it was falling down!

It was fine, but to this day I distinctly remember the kitchen floor moving in a wave motion. Scary.

I remember that one (I live about a mile from Dudley) early hours of the morning sitting in the conservatory I got a feeling similar to when a lift starts too fast then everything started to rattle and shake I think the rumbling sound came from my insides though. It left me feeling quite disorientated, I don't think the eight pints of lager I'd drunk helped with that though.

I tried to thank Alan @EtchedPixels by email today for the prompt arrival of a well chosen and patiently selected set of parts for my Pullman project. I couldn't be happier with his help and diligence. However, I got a Daemon failure notice returned in my email inbox, and his Ultima site is currently unreachable as well.
The same address worked fine to pay for the stuff the other day, and amazingly it made it through the snow.
I just hope he gets whatever is wrong fixed soon.
How ironic that I choose N gauge after I start using reading glasses.

At a guess I would say he is adjusting his website to show what stock he has, having unpacked what has been stored for a long while. Just a guess though.

I also tried to access the website last night.
