    Andy Dapol is there any further update on these yet? I’m guessing there are stuck in port somewhere by now?

          Hi, The class 50s arrived as planned last week, however during our UK QC checks we discovered a PCB problem which meant we have been unable to ship the product and have rejected the entire production batch. Since then, we have been in discussion with the factory in order to find a resolution. As we have now agreed a solution and timescale, we are able to share this with our customers.

          The entire shipment is being returned to the factory for the fitting of a replacement PCB, which will create a delay of approximately 20 weeks taking release into Q1 of 2022. We do very much regret the delay to modellers, our customers and commissioners.
          Regards
          Andy

            Andy Dapol thanks for the update, frustrating for you guys especially with everything else you are having to contend with regards uk logistics, global shipping and reduced working in the factories. Gives me more time to save for a few more now.

            👍🏼 I’d rather wait for a fully working loco rather than receive a faulty one. These things happen. I’m interested if you have QC before they leave the factory?

              Andy Dapol Hi Andy, is there any news on these returning yet? Im guessing they might be held up with China’s covid issues?

                  Yes as Simon says it is available, and as an update the shipment has been delayed a little at Rotterdam but should be in Southampton on Wednesday and hopefully out for delivery to stockists next week.

                  The Class 50s you talk about about being caught up in Rortterdam, does this include the GBRF 50s that were sent back due to PCB issues..

                  Kernow model centre have no idea when they will be in stock.


                  Thanks

                    HI Ian3721, The latest information we received was a 'UK dock date' which is 26th April it can take 1-2 weeks to get to us after this. However, I will add that in the current climate this could be subject to changes outside our control. We will update via media channels once we receive firm information of a delivery date in Chirk.

                  Hi Andy

                  I don't like to moan as a lot of things are beyond your control. However, these class 50s in GBRF are beginning to drive me mad..

                  I checked Kernows site this morning and they say they are in stock. So, i contacted the shop and they have no knowledge of the 50s. Why im not sure why you would advertise something as in stock when you dont have it. I realise you wont know, but its making the arrival of these even more annoying.

                  Please can you tell us whats going, Kernow said they should have been there Friday, yet are advertising them without the stock.
