    • Hi Alan, Many thanks for that. You make some good points. We offered the survey through several channels, not only here. We had it on our FB page, which was then shared in numerous of the big FB groups over there, RMWeb, email mailshot to our registered customers and was a news item in all the modeling magazines. The response was huge considering the market so we would stand by it as accurate. It’s not all we have based the assumption on, it’s also sales of items such as the Orange bubbles.  Anyway, as the CIE plough testifies, we’re backing CIE era, of which sales have been okay so far. It’s no real secret that CIE ballasts are coming next year, blue Tara’s will appear too, and CIE ferts and items like B&I and Bell liners will fit the CIE era too over the next 12-24 months. I don’t see how we can back it any more than that tbh!  At the end of the day the biggest indicator of what era is most popular is sales. If these CIE era models sell, we’ll back the era as well as we plan to next year for years to come! As for Ferts, end of the year is still on course! Start dropping those hints!  Cheers, Fran
    • Jayus. I didn't realise it was so close ,. better start throwing the hints out, thanks for the heads up lads,😄 It  is a great way  of getting Christmas and birthday presents in all fairness , I've did for the last number of years.
    • I would be okay waiting until Q1 '19, between the Tara Mines and other UK stuff coming out, I'm pretty well knee deep in 00 gauge debt.
    • Now here's a man talking sense. I like your thinking 
    • Lovely shots as always. Great to see a full liner when there's so little freight about nowadays.

      I am an early to mid 80s' man up to Mk 3 era so am really interested.
      Haven't ordered yet as was waiting to decide what to do so I will definitely buy 2 plough in CIE finish.
      Likewise with the Tara's I have held off. Not so much by the colour but by the roof.
      Any pointers?
