Hi Gareth

Yes, that is right.  Not helped by the unpredictable nature of when things will be finished and actually arrive - we never expected the Pendolinos and Class B tanks to arrive so close to each other.

For me it was all put into perspective when one of the large mail order retailers said that even with several dedicated staff it would take them several weeks to send out all their pre-orders of a new item.

Cheers, Mike

Feel free to send mine without sending me the invoice for the balance first, Mike, but somehow I can't see that happening :D
It's very rare I look forward to paying for something but this is one of those cases.

I worry about such comments.

Ok, I have in my possession my modest order, but feel that Mike's photo says it all.

Just want to say that I really appreciate the work that goes into these projects. At the moment Revolution are the heroes of the N gauge part of the hobby. Heartfelt thanks to you both and any long suffering partners.

And I bet those retailers did not have pre-orders for 100% of the production run, unless it was an exclusive commission.

Hi Bealman

I'm interested in what you're worried about? I assume something to do with the logistics of getting everything sent out?

Cheers, Mike

Oh when did you order? I'm awaiting an email for the balance of 18 Esso!
Wondered if I'm close?!

I placed three separate orders & I think that the first one was September 2016.

Edit - sorry this was the date of the second order, can't find the date of the first at present.

Ok thanks! My orders were in November 2016 so I'll still be in the queue!!
