It's rumoured to be just very late to hit the shops but no one knows why. Could of course have a knock on effect on the next batch. I was wondering if they've run into some trouble with DRS over it for some reason.

I received this information from a reliable source,"I have asked the Powers That Be and have been advised that it is likely to be March, although this is not guaranteed.
Hopefully we will see it soon.

On the subject of ViTrains class 37s. I picked up a new 37 428 (one of the first issues of class 37s) from eBay. As usual (apparently) the horns were broken. Many people have written or posted saying that they got replacement horns from ViTrains or the Hobby Co. I tried emailing ViTrains using the address they have on their web site ([email protected]) and this has bounced, being listed as "undeliverable".

Can anyone give me a useful working contact so I can request replacement parts, please?

We have tried e-mailing ViTrains a number of times to ask who imports their mainland european models to the UK without success (we now know it's the Hobby Co).

However, the problem often lies with the language barrier - often, it pays to send in the first language of the company using Babelfish as well as English, although in the case of ViTrains that did not help in this case !
