Exactly as Patrick says. We also said from the outset with the bubbles that we would do it in all liveries, so it was hardly that much of a surprise surely? Much like the bauxite Tara’s are first, but we have said blue Tara’s are going to follow.
Orange bubbles remain on sale for anyone who wants to buy them and prove to us that CIE sells as strong as more modern liveries! 😊
Thing is, the remaining ivory bubbles continue to outsell the orange versions.
We expect all to sell out in a reasonable time, but the remaining ivory stock will be depleted well before the orange ones.
In fairness Fran that is most likely because folk did not know about the Orange bubbles in advance, and most had already ordered what they may have assumed to be the only livery available in the short term. For example, had I personally known about the Orange bubbles at the same time as the Ivory, I would have ordered less ivory and more orange. Not complaining btw, just pointing out a possible rational explanation for why the oranges didn't shift as fast as the ivories.
PS: Noted with keen interest "AS" exciting move into O gauge. I harbour an interest in a possible future O gauge 141 class - one day far far in the future.
