  1. Few extra made available https://railsofsheffield.com/blogs/news/sound-18000-gas-turbine-1
  2. This is the supplied sound fitted into Rails 18000 : - https://www.dckits-devideos.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=1873&search=18000
  3. https://railsofsheffield.com/blogs/news/18000-gas-turbine 18000 GAS TURBINE Posted by Oliver Davies on August 23, 2021 Exclusive 18000 Gas Turbine "Kerosene Castle" docks at Rotterdam! We are pleased to report our exclusive Heljan Class 18000 Gas Turbine Locomotives have docked at Rotterdam and will be arriving at Heljan HQ in the next couple of days. Once at Heljan they will go through the Quality Control process before being forwarded onto us. Delivery to Rails is expected at the beginning of September
  4. It is also quoted that seems to be good news that at least a final run to the UK to unload will be before dry docking that will save quite a few days. Deliveries possible in late August rather than September plus!
  5. It was originally stated that it was terminating at Rotterdam for repairs with all containers trans shipped
  6. Ever Given is passing Ibiza now. Apparently it failed its seaworthiness inspection and has been limited to 10 knots. It will sail to Rotterdam and be fully unloaded. The consequences of this are: - 1 - At that speed it will not make Rotterdam on 25th July at 18:00 as predicted. It has c 2000 miles to do at 10 mph, that's 200 hours or 9 days, so July 30-31. 2 - Instead of the ship unloading them coming to the UK, it will be unloaded, stored and then reloaded onto another ship to queue to enter the UK. So, will they arrive in August at all?

  8. Missed that one! Rails & Accurascale websites still say Q2
  9. They were supposed to be with us in Q2 2021. Anyone know where they are as no updates from Rails or Accurascale.
  10. Rails have announced that they are on the ship and will be delivered late August.
  11. Class 11/12 via Kernow http://www.modelrailoffers.co.uk/pg/167/Project-Class-11-12
  12. On the Rails website it still says delivery of 18000 in June but on the sound page it now says delivery in July
  13. Whilst locos are high labour items, many wagons & coaches are not and could be build by more automation in the UK Big bonus, you own the moulds and they are local and can be delivered quicker to meet fluctuations in demand, delivery savings exceed higher production costs! Now isn't there an area in East Kent with higher unemployment that might have such skills to do this? Peco seem able to do it.
