I was thinking of using that but bit confused as the site states 0% for 4 months but the example figures imply its for the full term of the repayment 

TBH it is very confusing and I've tried to use it 3 times previously to buy trains and a PC, each failed and I cancelled it. It is quite a bizarre and confusing set up so not recommended! You have to arrange to make the payments from a non-credit card yourself and if you miss the dates you get hit with full interest etc. Basically I will have to pay it over 4 equal instalments by the correct dates or I get clobbered. Paypal can do payments but have yet to grasp loans.

Hello everyone

 

Thank you all of you who took part in my birthday offer, especially those who purchased a 57302, they are the first we have sold online. I'm sorry but all the prices have been increased again.

 

Our 37116's have been selling really well, of our allocation of thirty six, we only have twelve left, in less than a week. I also had confirmation from Bachmann, that they have sold out in the warehouse. So don't hang about if you are considering purchasing one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153623975680?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649  32-781-DS

 

Regarding any issues with payment, we do have a group account, which you can make a direct bank transfer, please just get in touch. Also I'm always happy to hold any item, for when pay day comes around. Please don't hesitate in getting in touch.

 

Cheers

Good evening everyone

 

I will be at the GCR diesel gala tomorrow, with the group's sales stand. We will be at Loughborough from 09:00 until around 16:00.

 

Please come and say hello, and hopefully purchase something while you are there.

 

Cheers

Good morning

 

I will be at the Epping and Ongar diesel gala, at North Weald station, on Saturday with the group's sales stand. If you are attending, please feel free to come and say hello. 

 

Also I will be stepping down from the group's online sales on the Friday before Warley, with the Saturday at the show, being my last involvement with the group for a while.

 

Cheers

Hello everyone

 

Thank you if any of you purchased something from us at the EOR on Saturday, it really made it worth it going to these events. Recently galas have been very disappointing of late.

 

 

I've restocked on a few items, plus to my surprise I was tipped off that Bachmann have got some more class 90037 & 90042 in stock. I have ordered four of each, but have already sold three 90037's. I've been told that these are from a different batch, which should have no issues with over tightened screws!

Good evening everyone

 

Our allocation of 32-392 ( 37046 in dutch livery) are arriving tomorrow

 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/163870597333?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649  32-792  (37046)  £144.45

 

Also our most popular model is back in stock tomorrow

 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/163870634167?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649  32-788 (37284)  £123

 

If we sell three more of these, you will join the exclusive class 37 locomotive group 100 club. This and 37041 have been our most successful models since our limited edition of 37003. Until late June these two have been head to head, in fact 37041https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/163821635786?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 was possibly in front, at the moment we have sold ninety seven  37284's and ninety two 37041's. If you wish to join the 100 club, and renumber either into your favourite class 37, it would be a nice achievement for me, to sell hundred of each design.

 

Cheers

Here is my one Philip, renumbered as 192 now. I’ve done a few bits to it including adding divider bars to the cantrail grilles, round buffers, opening up the boiler port, adding valves and renumbering using Railtec transfers. Still got a couple of bits to do yet but it’s almost there!

Hello Eddie

 

Looking very good, I which I was clever enough to be able to adapt models myself, give me bricks and stone, I've got no issues!

 

If you fancy adding 3717/183/190/191/263/264 to your layout, we only need to sell another two to make the magic ton. I'll fetch my coat now

 

A few bits bits & bobs

 

Due to a cancellation of a order, I've got one

 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153656432625?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649  32-611  (90037)  £140

 

Also our two regional class 37's are getting low

Thank you Eddie

 

You are a true gentleman, I must admit I'm quite proud of this achievement.

 

Many thanks to all of you that have taken up the offer of 10% of orders over £50 on eBay today

 

If you haven't seen it you can save yourself a few pounds, our link is below

Cheers Philip

 

The 10% offer was a bonus, in fact, I ordered myself another 37026 as well! 

 

Glad to know the funds are going towards a classic loco. Maybe one day someone will preserve a 158 (708 seems to have been following me around for weeks now) 

 

Wish I had the time and space to help you guys out but unfortunately just so busy on the real railway just now.

Well, what a few days that was. Thanks to the eBay 10% offer, it was just like Christmas again in the Cole Wallace household, with fifty parcels being wrapped by my lovely wife in the past five days.

 

I won't give the full details, but I've been able to list all of my allocation of 32-781SD. Don't wait for to long, as we only have four left.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/163887677586?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649  37116-£144.45

 

Due to selling most of our allocation over the last few days, I have again listed all of our 32-792 with only eight left in stock

 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/163870597333?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649  37046 -£144.45

 

 

Both locos are now out of stock in the Bachmann warehouse.

 

Once again thank you so much for your support, it certainly has made my last few months in charge of sales a pleasure.

 

Cheers

Hello Meatloaf

 

Thanks for the order, and I'm pleased that you were happy with our service.

 

Well after ten years I attended my final diesel gala with the group's sales stand. If any of you attended the NVR, and purchased something from us, thank you very much.

 

As  I now have only six weeks left, if anyone would like something ordered specificity Bachmann related they have four weeks to place it with me.  

 

I've relisted a few things please check out our eBay shop. https://www.c37lg.co.uk/shopmain.aspx?category=models

 

After nearly a year, we have nearly run out of our allocation of FGA's

 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153661351558?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649  38-627- £71.95 only four remaining 

 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/163906747422?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649   38-625 -£71.95 only six left

 

I also listed one of our popular badges on ebay

Here is a link to our other badges on the group's  website

https://www.c37lg.co.uk/shopmain.aspx?category=badges

 

My personal favourite is 37408, which we have only fifteen left, so please don't hang around if you want one.

 

All the best

 

Philip

Good evening everyone

 

Just a quick reminder that if you want anything from the Bachmann catalogue, which is still available in the warehouse before I finish on the 22nd they need to get any orders into me by the 4th. I can either send via the post, or deliver by hand at Warley on the Saturday.

 

You can contact me with your requests at [email protected]

 

Cheers

 

Philip

No the Class 37 Locomotive Group's shop, will not be closing. All that is happening, is that I'm standing down after posting all the model orders over the past four years. 

 

Obviously there will be a transition period, while our present Chairman Gavin Wolfenden takes over. He certainly has a baptism of fire, as all three class 20's and 37710 arrive within the first week or so, of him taking on the gauntlet.

 

All I'm doing is to offer the Cole Wallace  touch, for the last time.

 

Cheers

Good evening everyone

 

Can I ask a little bit of advise from some of my customers. When I step down at Warley, I wanted to purchase one of the group's class 37 models. If it's an easy job, I would like to purchase a 32-775SD (37032)and remove the Mirage nameplate without affecting the model underneath. If not it will have blue 37284

 

Many thanks for any info

 

Cheers

 

Philip
