All well and good Alex - but you could do to put some ballast down - and as for that trackwork.......

Our thanks to everyone that visited our stand today and said hello.

 

We will post some more photos of the samples over the coming days.

Where can these be ordered from? C & M Models, Trains4U, etc, as with the PGAs?  I’ve learnt today that you can only ever pre-order on the Cavalex site and obviously the pre-order has finished there.

 

Cheers.

Hi Jake, these have still yet to go into final production at the factory so if you send us an email with your requirements we will add your order to the manufacturing schedule and generate you an invoice.

Hi,

 

Thanks for your prompt response.

 

I subsequently discovered that Rails are selling a pre-order of a three pack of the Railfreight ones so placed an order last night. However, please can I enquire as to what the individual cost is for the wagon direct from you ?

Rails are doing 3 pack A and 3 pack B. Preordered both. Along with one from Cavalex direct, that’s a nice 7 rake, all different numbers and details. Looking forward to them.

Just placed my pre order with Rails for BBA 3 packs A and B. Really looking forward to these. I built 3 Cambrian ones which are heavily reinforced with steel and aluminium underneath to weight and strengthen so I guess that having done that a RTR one would come along...

Alex Hi.  Quick thanks to you and your team for coming to Bury St Edmunds Model Railway Club 70th Anniversary Exhibition yesterday and taking time to present many of us with a close up of current pre production items and also discussing the very interesting plans for the future.  As you know I have some items on order and to discuss your objectives and plans with the positive commitment that you have for the future of the business is most gratifying.  I regard you positive attitude in coming to the populous as reassuring and your plans for the next few years likely to produce even more quality items.  Such interaction is well appreciated by those who discussed with matters with you and further orders, certainly from our Club Members will follow.  Perhaps some of the other more "recluse" manufacturers might well take a leaf out of your book and take the time to get close to the purchasing element and listen and they might generate the success I believe that you will have.  Well done and keep developing those ideas.

Good evening Chris, thank you to you and your team for inviting us to the Bury St Edmunds Model Railway Club 70th Anniversary Exhibition yesterday, we had a very enjoyable day.

Thank you also for your kind comments regarding Cavalex. Cav and I really appreciate your positive feedback and we are very pleased to hear that you like our current and future projects.

Hope to catch up soon.

 

Our thanks also to all those that dropped by to say hello yesterday and took the time to visit our stand.

Hello Cavalex,

 

Will you be considering a re-run of your BBA/BLA wagons? I missed the first run :( and there seem to be none commercially available.

 

Cheers,

 

Philip

Try the Rails of Sheffield website. You can order them there. They have their own limited edition versions.

 

Pretty sure Trains4U will have some too once they are released.

Hi Alex,

 

No rush on the BBA’s on my part. The samples in photos and the video clips looks superb. Besides I need to actually get a layout built to

run them on! 
 

Hope all is well with you guys.

 

thanks

Mark

Phil's sent over some snaps of the latest BBA EP samples that Alex had on the stand at Stevenage. I still can't get over the mesh floor when I hand my hands on them at Peterborough.

Wow. You rarely see brake discs modelled by RTR manufacturers - and if they are they often come as a raised face with no bolt detail. Have we ever seen brake discs on the rear (inner) wheel face though?...

 

It looks absolutely stunning. Full credit to the lads.

 

The tension lock in the last pic looks like it’s had enough of Phil's photography though! :no:

 

Jack.
