If you do decide to give those who purchased the TEA's a hint or preview are the TEA's due before or after the pendolino order book closes?

Hi CaleyDave

The TEA tankers will definitely be here before the Pendolino book closes.  They left the factory last weekend...

Cheers

Ben A.

Hi Gang,

After chatting with Mike and Ben very briefly at Leamington, I'm satisfied that I can wait for the 'behind the scenes' chat to be finalised so that the announcement, when it goes public...is full of confirmation and certainty....with none of the 'what ifs' and bluster of some other traders.

Revolution are to be commended for delaying an announcement till tangible evidence of their product is delivered...although 10 production run tankers and a couple of Pendolinos on the test track convinced me that their products are not just CADs or ideas plucked from the ether.

I think I know what it is.....but I'm happy to wait for my info delivered with the TEAs.....

Later...

Given that those who have purchased a TEA get "first dibs" on the news, will newsletter subscribers find out soon after ?
I didn't orde any TEA's as they were "out of era" for me !   :doh:

N gauge don't do AC control, it's either DC or DCC. Hope that doesn't disappoint too much.  :smiley-laughing:

Sorry I'll stop now!
