Nearly Final Call for the Hunslet 0-6-0 DH

A penultimate reminder that the pre-order discounted price (£75*) for the Society’s Hunslet Shunter closes on 31st December 2018 (two weeks’ time).

After this date all orders will be subject to the full price (£82*). In addition there will be no further orders taken until all pre-orders have been received and dispatched to members.

Current timescales suggest production will begin immediately after Chinese New Year.…

*Correct at time of publication – subject to change based on final cost of production.
