does anyone know if all of the surprise Touax liveried versions sold out at Warley?

would have liked some but afraid Warley is not a show I have frequented for a long time.

Touax version: no they haven't all sold - they will be available from some of our retailers and we will also have some to sell direct from our website (once the retailers get their stock we will put up whatever we have left).

Off the top of my head: East Somerset Models; Rails; Trains4U; Osborns and Kernow should have both the single and triple packs of the Touax version once we send them this week.  Cheltenham should have the single version.  All are stocking some or all of the "normal" versions of KFA for anyone who missed out pre-ordering.

Cheers, Mike

Some were collected at Warley and about 25% have gone out earlier this week, but we still have hundreds of orders to process, pick, pack and post.  We will try to update your order to complete when it is posted but I'm already behind on that as my real job have expected me to do some work this week!  We will also update the project overview section of our website with progress on sending out orders.

Anyone who asks for a personal update by email on their order will go straight to the back of the queue ;-)

Cheers Mike

Given that I have not ordered any (yet, sacrilege I know but I have only this year decided to model a Freightliner train) if I email asking about my order will one be auto-generated for me? Thus avoiding paying for it  :)

Seriously, if you would like any then you might not want to hang around as there is only a limited amount of stock at a small number of retailers (listed on our website) and we do not hold any stock as we only produced to pre-orders.

Best wishes

Mike

Today I had a Royal Mail card posted through my letterbox. As I haven't ordered anything recently which involves RM delivery, I'm sure they're my long-awaited models at the sorting office awaiting collection.

I'm looking forward to them because I can realistically model short container trains without the hassle of running twin sets.
Some years I saw a GBRf 66 depart from Doncaster hauling one empty container flat probably heading to Peterborough.

Mine arrived safely this week - both my original order from Revolution and a "top up" from Rails as I discovered the train I wanted to model was longer than I first thought...

I've yet to have a close look or give them a run yet but they look great. One very minor anoyance: on one of my triple packs one wagon has been labeled as the Network Rail version. Fortunately the wagon inside the box appears to be correct so I'm not worried about it. I'm guessing there's someone with a Network Rail triple back with an PFA labeled box.

I caused the boys some confusion at Warley when I pointed out my original Blue bogie KFAs were labelled as having black ones.

No matter at all, my order was correct.

I have utmost respect for those labelling thousands of boxes!

PFA/KFA made it to the continent as well. Thank's to Ben and Mike.

Had not a lot of time to examine the wagons, though the level of detail is amazing and the wagons have good weighted feel to them. They seem heavier than the recent C-Rail KQA pocket wagon.

Dapol Containers cannot be put on the wagons without removing the positioning pins on the container corners. On the Farish containers I have I needed to cut off 4 pins that where more on the inside of the container, after that the container where a snug fit to the KFA. No problem and modification with C-Rail containers.

A few thinks popped up though, literally. From three wagons I had out of the box on one the metal frame was completely detached, on a second it gave an audible click when pressing the metal frame to the top of the wagon. After removing the boogies I could put the frame back on the wagon. May have to check all wagons for this and may need to add some glue to keep it in position. All three looked a bit wobbly on the container deck, but I haven't checked in detail to verify. Someone noticed this as well?

A few pictures with bad lighting. First is the Network Rail variant, second shows Tiphook and Freightliner with C-Rail and Farish container.
