Am I doing something wrong with the pre-ordering on the website, it won't get past the checkout stage without an out of stock error.

Cheers

Mark

HI Mark

 

Thanks for pointing that out I am sure its fixed now.

Hi Arran,

CAD is looking ace. Do I remember rightly that this first batch will be in the current Freightliner green livery?

HI Jo

 

Freightliner green is what i am letting people pre order , i may do some RFD black in the first run as well but ive not decided at this early stage .

I'd order 2 packs of the outers and one inner if you do!

HI All

 

I've updated the website to take pre orders on the Black RFD livery , I've only put on twins and 4 packs because if the inner does not get enough orders you will be substituted with another twin .

HI All

 

So of the latest cads of the FSA outer , these are almost 100% , the FTA inner is an easy cad change .

 

The handrails will be a customer fit as they were removed from the prototype when in service.

HI All

 

Work is well underway on the FTA inner wagons, with details still to be added like the buffers and taking out the document box and adding in the brake wheels .

 

Wont be long now till we approve these for tooling .

N Gauge FSA FTA cads are 99.9999% complete now we just have to do the final checks on sizes to make sure nothings changed,. then its onto the tooling .

The underfloor in Red is a casting so this will keep the wagon strait .

Looking forward to my pre-order.  Any more thoughts on more containers (I think you said there might be some in the offing to complement these?)

Wouldn't mind some suitable for early '90s.  Freightliner red/yellow, Tiphook brown, Cast blue, Bell etc (N versions of your OO offerings).

 

Cheers

I have tried to place a pre-order but it is telling me "Warning: Payment method required!", but there is no payment option?

HI All

 

The website is getting work done to it at the moment " i cant put it of any longer"  but it will have Amazon pay  as well as Paypal when its finished .

 

The version of opencart it was on couldn't support Amazon pay

I'm with you on this. I have a rake of RevolutioN early KFAs and also have some C-Rail FSAs on order for an early 90s rake. There just aren't many good quality standard 20ft and 40ft containers suitable for this period.

Not yet but Rome wasn't built in a day .

 

that period was getting to the point they were mostly the ridding style they are now
