Not long now to go!!! The delivery window Q2 2021 is drawing to an end, just one month and a few days left and we'll have our 37s! 

And update on a more narrowed delivery window? 

 

Thanks. 

I had assumed the Cl55 would be out before the Cl37......

Looking at the lead times of other new models I’ve recently bought, I’d say the Autumn is the likely time they’ll be landed. Add 2 weeks’ further delay if they need to go over the EU/UK border, if we haven’t sorted it out by then.

This is indeed correct. The Deltic is ahead of the 37.

Our British customers will receive their models via a UK warehouse, our ROW customers from our Irish warehouse.

 

Cheers!

Yes, that’s the way to do it. All my customers that import from the ROW are doing the same. I have a Ballymoss on order with the white window surrounds for my heritage fleet, and the LL class 37.

Will delivery times be about the same as I ordered the RoS special Cl55 edition?

 

Not that I am worried, it’ll arrive when it does.

 

No, there will be a bit of time between both. All will be revealed in the update, but hope that helps!

 

Cheers!

I actually made the same mistake I did before, I have in fact order the 55 from you :blush: it is the 18000 Turbine from Rails...

ROW = ?

 

Republic of xxxxx? What have I missed since I left (apart from many grey cells).

My apologies. I have given out to students in my previous life for using abbreviations when communicating officially without explaining them first. If only they could see me now! It is indeed "Rest of World".

 

Cheers!

Three Letter Acronym ... isn't it obvious

 

When the list of abbreviations at the start of a document exceeds the actual text ... !!

No Problem. I I was just thinking along the wrong lines.


Now, just need to figure out these TLAs:

KUA

HYA

JSA

IKA

PFA

TEA

IIA

PCA

FIA

...

I usually render it as RoW.

 

A TLA that has been around for longer than most. In the 60s and 70s we played Test Matches against them in the years that South Africa (RSA) were due to have played. Some great matches as I recall, competitive but played in a very good spirit.

One thing I love about the britmodeller forum is that the software translates the really common acronyms when you mouse over. No idea how they did it but it's a neat feature, certainly one I could use here when I stray into some topics :D

A friend of mine used 'TLA' as the trading title for his electronics company.

There's a street name in Grosmont (just up the hill from the NYMR level crossing) called "Institute Row, leading to Office Row" - probably followed by Punch-up in the Car Park!

An old acronym I recall was Toilet...

stands for Thirty One, Inside Loco, Expect Trouble.

 

Relates back to the knackered 31/4’s (later 31/5’s) used on the Manchester to Barrow, Blackpool and Southport turns, when reliability was so poor they would default to sending them out double headed, in expectation one would fail. 
The expectations were usually met, and the return working to Manchester was invariably a different pair, as quite often both the outbound pair would fail, in some cases it was possible to see 4x 31’s on a 4x coach train with only 1 of them actually left working.

 

That reminds me.. an accurate OO gauge 31... wouldn't that be a nice thing to model ?
