We have received a large number of emails from people who are hoping to buy a Pendolino, but who did not order before the deadline.
Rapido have informed us that they have manufactured some additonal models, and we will have these for sale, but our priority is delivering the models already ordered.
Once this is done we will catalogue the spare/extra models on our website and they will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. We can not take reservations so please do not email us asking to reserve a set – we will only have to disappoint you!
Since we anticipate demand for these models to be high we will send out an email alert to our subscribers when this happens. If you are interested we suggest you register for our newsletter without obligation to ensure you receive this email alert, and give yourself the best chance of obtaining a model.
The packaging of the Pendolino is heavy and that means that the packaging needs to be sufficient – all of which makes P&P expensive. We have yet to finalise which courier or Royal Mail will be used, but all deliveries will require a signature.
All delivery addresses for the Pendolinos will be checked against the current shipping/delivery address on your account – please ensure that it is up-to-date by the end of the year! If you need to change it then click on Shop > My Account. It will not automatically update your order but at least we know to manually change your address.
If you prefer to collect your Pendolino at Model Rail Scotland in Glasgow then please let us know before the Pendolinos arrive (exact date to be confirmed) and we will make the arrangements (and refund your post & packing charges).
