Cows have nothing to do with it. I'm just at that stage where I cannot sleep so I have a small stash of sleeping pills for circumstances like this. Hateful, absolutely hateful. Mercifully I don't have to do to work which means I cannot take my frustrations on unfortunate suppliers any more.

Worse than that I cannot find the Ge4/4II and two EW1 coaches that was scheduled before!

May pack it upif that's the level of support Kato gives its customers.

Yes, I found it after I shot my mouth off.

However, perhaps in 2019 Kato may give the RhB the same support it has given it in 2018 in the form of the Ge4/4II and the EW1 coaches. I'm sure they will be rewarded. Of course there is the "Green" issue still to be dealt with and perhaps that is for 2019.

Happy Times,

Mike Beard.

Yes, RhB actually managed to put it on the GEX this summer too, but failed (at least when I was there the other  week) to put 631 on the GEX

UNESCO

Isn't life interesting? I've just looked at eBay for RhB Glacier Express and suddenly there are UNESCO sets available at a not super-high price, about 240 basic. However I'm not over sure Mr Kato won't rerun the whole range of GE4/4 III locos once the agreement time with Mr Noch has passed.

I'm still waiting to see if 2019 will bring freight cars. Tankers and ballast wagons I have but it looks like I'm going to have to scratch build the bogie flats in bulk.

The layout planning is done "Filet of Filisur" and now I have to design the baseboards around the trackplan. Um. And it all has to fit into the rear of my ancient C-RV.

Cheers,

Mike Beard

Especially when you see what that set initially did cost in Japan when it was 1st released. CRAZY !!!

Yes.

They changed the system here in NZ how they charge for GST and duty. It's still NZ $60, the minimum they need to be able to charge before they will send a bill. But, they added a 5% duty on toys. So what was once roughly NZ $400 including shipping cost is now down to NZ $275. And to make it worth for the tax department they also charge a :censored: Bio Security Levy of NZ $49 on top of the GST and duty bill.
In other words, as soon as a parcel value goes over the NZ $275 threshold, we now receive automatically an invoice of a minimum of NZ $112 !!  :veryangry: (or in your money 56)  Nice ay ? 

Edit: If you say but wait a minute, $60 plus $49 does not equal $112 ! Well, that's because they also charge GST on the  :censored: Bio Security Levy !  It's a :censored: win-win for them.   :veryangry:
