Scottish large logo Class 47s have been despatched
Our new ViTrains large logo Scottish Region passenger Class 47s have arrived, been tested and checked over, and have made their way out of the door to you via the Royal Mail...
AFTER A COUPLE of false starts (including over-optimistic delivery dates from ViTrains and the fact that our consignment was delayed by the Italian late summer factory shutdown) we are pleased to report that our two Scottish Region large logo Class 47s are now with us!
The models look great and reflect the minor livery variations on these machines such as the iconic West Highland Terrier and Highland Stag emblems, extent of black window surrounds and running number size. Both have our now standard specification factory-fitted metal handrails and include complimentary sets of photo-etched stainless steel nameplates that set the locos off a real treat.
After undergoing a short period of testing, checking and packaging, all orders have now been despatched via the Royal Mail tracked service. If your expected model has not arrived and you haven't been charged yet then please contact us on 01780 470086 during office hours. We have a small number of models still waiting despatch due to updated payment details being required.
Both production runs of No. 47617 University of Stirling and No. 47636 Sir John de Graeme were nearly fully subscribed and, at the time of writing, we have less than a dozen of each still available for general sale in either standard, DCC-fitted or with our recently improved DCC sound pack. More details can be found on our product page here but don't leave it long if you want one and have so far ordered. We don't expect them to hang around.
