'Northern Belle' & DRS Class 47s – 90% sold out!

Just six weeks after we announced our upgraded ViTrains Class 47 project to reproduce Direct Rail Services and Orient Express-Northern Belle limited editions, we are delighted to say that over 90% of the production run has already been reserved.

THERE HAS BEEN a fantastic response to our Northern Belle and Direct Rail Services Class 47 announcement. In just over six weeks we have been innundated with enquiries resulting in over 90% of the proposed production having been pre-ordered. It is particularly interesting to note that the DRS locomotives are proving just as popular as the Northern Belle twin pack with the DCC sound option surpassing our expectations. If the current level of orders is maintained then we will likely have to close the order book in the next month so please do not delay. Details of the Northern Belle locomotives can be found here, whilst the DRS model info is here

Regular correspondence is currently taking place with ViTrains, and the factory is well advanced with the tooling modifications needed on the roof for the new cooler group. Drawings have been made and revised and new tooling is being made, ready to accept the stainless steel photo-etched radiator grilles.

If you are still deliberating over placing an order for these limited editions then don't leave it too long as the available models are reducing daily.
