But in 'confuse the customer mode' identified incorrectly as an O1, instead of (what is instantly recognisable to a GNR or LNER afficianado as) an O2.

If a model of probable combination of parts of two early Patrick Stirling GNR tenders is widely mis-advertised as a "Sturrock" tender, is it any surprise to find an O2 mis-described as an O1?

According to today’s Rails Roundup, the new batch is expected “sometime after Chinese New Year Q2 2024”.

'Sometime' being the significant word. The current disruption to container freight shipping due to events proximate to the Red Sea - Suez Canal - Mediterranean shipping route will be properly biting by then. One might hope that the recent experience of the Suez Canal constipation event will aid the forward planning to minimise disruption, but I wouldn't bank on that.

An e-mail from Rails announced a “Heljan Takeover Day” at Rails HQ on Saturday, 13th. Amongst the latest samples the O2 figures. That’s good news and I hope to see pictures posted. I also hope to see a darker grey on the GNR version but no matter; whatever the shade, my pre-order stands.

Clarification that HQ is Rails HQ.
