'Northern Belle' & DRS 47s - model supply update

With ViTrains now on its summer recess, we have just recieved the latest Class 47 body samples showing the improvements that have been incorporated into our series of exclusive new releases.

WE CAN REPORT that all pre-orders for our ViTrains Class 47 models have been despatched, the majority arriving with customers just in time for Christmas. Believe us when we say that was hard work with some long nights involved in the run up to the Royal Mail Christmas deadline!

All the models have been exceptionally well received and have met with approval from the firms involved. We are also glad that ViTrains has done such a good job of making the tooling improvements, brining the Class 47 bang up to date. Many customers have also contacted to us to say how delighted they are with their new purchases, especially the sound version.

So, at this stage (early-March), we are now dealing with a few loose ends and would encourage the dozen or so customers who have not received their orders yet to contact with updated payment details – credit and debit cards may have expired or changed since placing the order and when we tried to charge them. We have e-mailed, but after one last letter going out in the next few days, the items will be returned to stock and then offered to waiting new customers on a first come, first served basis.
