Hi there,

Sorry about this - it does sometimes happen.  Usually the order has gone through.  I think the first thing is to leave it a day then try to log in and check your account/order history.  If you still have no joy, then please email us via the website.

I am not an expert on websites; I think the problem is that the website was created to support the original Pendolino project.  It was fine for that, but our growth since has outstripped its capabilities.   I know that Mike is looking at alternate website options, and Paul (Only Me) has offered very kindly to help too.

cheers

Ben A.

Hello Ron,

I hope you mean you've ordered two!  Just to avoid doubt:  We haven't cancelled any liveries!

Cheers

Or do you mean two real ones have been scrapped...?  :hmmm:

More excited about the 92 than the Pendolino personally!

Don't panic Ben, your right 2 more were added to the order books.

That's me ordered an EWS grey (last year), DB Schenker and the GBRf now.

Ben, Mike

Rails of Sheffield have just sent out an email offering the class 92 at the same price as charged to the supporters of the crowd funding. My understanding is that the supporters are getting close to trade price. Can you please explain the situation as it appears to undermine the crowd funding model.

In addition their postage rates will likely make the out turn cost cheaper than yours

Thanks

That's probaly not the RevolutioN one, but DJM's version. IIRC he offered his 92 to retailers...

Best,
Michael

They have got both on there, DJMs is slightly more expensive.

This reminded me that I needed to order another one though (direct). Must stop now. 6 is enough.

No, It clearly states it is the Revolution model

They are also selling the cargo wagons but these are at a higher price

I guess like us they can buy at the crowdfunding price and choose to make little profit as a loss leader.

After all if they offer them for more then they wont sell any.

The good news might be that they have committed up front to buy a large number and the model will be still be available to buy after Revolution close their order book.

However and you can expect the price to go up then.

It was just Rails being a bit premature!

So are Rails selling these at cost?

Mike, I do not get your point as their customers can pay for these right now for delivery when they become available

Agreed if these being sold at cost it is out of your control but would they do this for model that is not even released
