Welcome to the October news bulletin. We are pleased to say that the first batch of B1s are on their way to us, production of the new TR No. 1 Talyllyn is well under way and that the final Radial tanks will be delivered with the B1s. We also bring you news of our impending sale and move of office.
Last call for the Radial tanks!
This really is the last opportunity to pick up one of these beautiful Victorian locomotives. The final batch of these arrive in the UK shortly which means we will have just a few examples of each livery left in stock including the new variant, a Drummond green example carrying a Drummond boiler and numbered 486. This is also the last opportunity you will have to avail yourselves of the chance to pick up a matching set of L&SWR carriages at a 10% discount (if you have purchased a Radial tank). You can see all the liveries available here.
The B1s are on their way!
After a long gestation period, we are proud to say that the first RTR and B1 kits are on their way to us. The initial production run will satisfy all pre-orders but there is very little free stock available in this shipment. Further runs will follow in due course but make sure you have got your name on one – they won’t hang around long! Full details of all the liveries and variations can be found here.
As announced previously, we are in the process of moving the office to a new address to allow our landlord the chance to repair the badly leaking roof of our industrial unit. The new office will not, alas, be open to passing visitors. From 5th October the new address will be:
Accucraft UK Ltd.
PO Box 394
Telephone (the same) 01981 241380, email (the same) firstname.lastname@example.org
Please bear with us during October, we may not be able to get goods out as quickly as we would like and the supply of spare parts may be delayed until we sort the new workshop out.
Last call for the moving sale!
We know many of you were disappointed that we had to scratch our Spring Sale and open day due to the Covid-19 outbreak and we are now planning to have a sale during the last week in September, now made more urgent by the need to leave the premises we currently occupy! The sale will held on the basis of individual 30 minute pre-booked appointments which will allow customers to safely browse the stock being offered and make their purchases in a controlled Covid-19 secure atmosphere (subject to the restrictions in place at the time). Given that much of the stock consists of ‘open box’ items, show stock (complete with travel boxes in most instances), ‘end of line’ items and original prototypes, it will be sold ‘as seen’ and we will be unable to publish a complete list of all that will be on offer but the image below gives an idea of some of those items available, the boxes will be for collection only. The sale will start at 11:00hrs on Monday 28th September with appointments on the hour and half past the hour until 16:00hrs – the sale will only last the week. Please ring or email us with your preferred time (and adjacent times in case that slot is already taken) – the Monday is now fully booked and Tuesday is filling up. In addition to the locomotives and rolling stock on offer we will have a selection of Code 332 track for sale.
U.S. End of Line offers
We have the following locomotives, which are now sold out in the UK, available from our inventory in Union City, California. Each locomotive is offered with a free item of rolling stock! Some of these are the last, single examples of their type, so this really is the ‘last chance saloon’ for some of these models. ‘Phone the office for further details or to purchase.
