The VEA vans produced in conjunction with Sonic Models are due to be unloaded anytime now and we expect to receive them by the end of next week. We’ll get them shipped out to our retailers and customers as soon as possible – if you have ordered direct from us and would like to save a bit of postage by collecting at TINGS then please drop us an email by 31 August (so that we know not to send your order out!) and we will confirm if it is possible. If you place an order between now and TINGS and would like to collect at TINGS then please put a note in your order in the delivery notes and we’ll bring them along for collection and refund your P&P.
In the meantime we thought it would be helpful to show some sample consists for anyone yet to decide on which VEAs they would like. Loosely speaking the late 70s and early 80s the majority of VEAs would have been Maroon, then early 80s started to see the introduction of Railfreight red/grey with the Railfreight Distribution grey with yellow ends introduced in 1990.
