According to the slw website class 24 experiment is now in stock- anyone received theirs yet?

 

Where does it say it's in stock, It still says pre-order but I maybe missing something

It said on the website in faint grey letters under the order button -50 in stock but weirdly I can't find the page now!

Payment for my 97201 was taken this morning so they can’t be that far away :)

It would appear that more than 97201 maybe  in the pipeline as I have ordered 3 different Locos , Including 97201, my others being one of the Scottish Locos and a later green model, although I have a feeling my order of 97201 may have been duplicated as I have been charged £268 for each of the 3 , whereas I was under the impression  the "Scottish locos" were a little more expensive .I will have to get in touch with SLW tomorrow.

SLW are aware that some payments have been duplicated and are in the process of correcting the overcharge and only 97201 is due to be sent.

Just talked with Phil to update my credit card details - 97201 will be sent out in the next few days and the remainder of the next batch at 3-4 week intervals.

I only noticed now so have emailed them, I should have one experiment on order but the pending charge on my card was near 4 figures! Will give it a day or two before I bother them again if they're aware

Feeling left out LOL - no payment taken yet

Same here and I gave them new card details earlier in the year; as their is nothing on the web site I presume they are working through the orders and a delay would be useful given some hefty car related credit card use about to appear on a statement

My credit card shows a pending transaction. I’m really looking forward to this one. It feels such a long time ago when I ordered it. I’m sure the wait will be well worth it.

I ordered one yesterday and it sounded like they were in-stock but they were just starting working through the orders to dispatch them out

*breaks cover*

 

 

 

EDIT:

Photos removed.

 

The one I have was delivered ahead of the main batch as a favour by Phil. It might be on show this weekend at Hazel Grove.

Since the pics were posted, their (SLW) phones have gone mad, so the pictures have been removed at their request.

The more folks that ring up, the more your order is delayed.

Please do not ring SLW asking where yours is - there's only 2 of them there and they will post them as best they can.

 

I might post pics at the weekend.

 

Cheers,

Mick

<Not entirely serious>

I wish they would put anyone who rings up to the back of the queue as punishment.

I spoke to Phil yesterday because I too had multi-payments showing in the "pending" section of my Credit Card, and I've only ordered 1 model. I assume they'd had trouble taking it (I had only ordered one) and wanted to check that it had gone through correctly. It had, they've just had some problems with there system which means it made multiple requests, but only 1 will actually be authorised they rest should not progress beyond the "pending" section.

Anyone want a peek? 

 

Please refrain from phoning SLW, if you have ordered your loco will be on the way soon. The more that people phone the longer it will take for the locos to be packed and dispatched.

 

EDIT:  If you have ordered this model, but have NOT been charged yet, this indicates we do not have your current payment details. E-mail reminders have now been sent and calls or messages left. We would urge you to contact us on 01780 470086 with any updated details (such as expiry date etc). Your reserved models are ready and waiting!

EXPERIMENT DISPATCHED VIA ROYAL MAIL

Customers will be pleased to know that our model of Class 24 No. 97201 EXPERIMENT has now arrived in stock and dispatch has taken place. Locomotives should start arriving with you over the next few days...

If you have ordered this model, but have NOT been charged yet, this indicates we do not have your current payment details. E-mail reminders have now been sent and calls or messages left. We would urge you to contact us on 01780 470086 with any updated details (such as expiry date etc). Your reserved models are ready and waiting!

EXPERIMENT has been extremely popular but we still have some availability should you have missed the pre-publicity and wish to purchase now. We confidently predict they won't be around for too long...

Out of interest how much is 97201?

 
quite fancy getting one if I can afford it but don’t want to waste SLWs time if it’s beyond my budget

Wow!! This is not really my thing, but on the basis it is an absolutely stunning model and I always had a soft spot for the red/blue research livery I have just ordered one under "rule 1". I have to hand it to SLW, they have done a spectacular job and in todays market the price is not unreasonable, well done them.
