In my last email I'd hoped to bring you some news of fresh arrivals and photos of exciting new products from Japan and the US. I'm glad to say that after much chasing of couriers and customs officials, the incoming Japanese deliveries have made it through. Once pre-orders have been processed, there should be a few extras of the newest pocket line freight sets and others on general sale soon.

Keep an eye on the Facebook Page for further news of the American stuff - due early next week. Thanks to everyone who has made their seasonal purchases nice and early - I've been busy this week despatching all sorts of goodies to various parts of the world. With more disruption to Royal Mail due over the next few weeks I can't emphasize enough how important it is to order soon.

I also mentioned last time that I'm not planning on any particular special Black Friday deals on the website this year. Remember that all prices are already discounted substantially from RRP and Kato really does offer great value whether it's a simple piece of Unitrack or a full 10 car express train. However, to make some room for the new stock , some reductions are currently available on US Steam locos, platforms, some trams and one or two other things. Check the Sale Page.

A reminder is probably due that I don't have a physical shop. I keep overheads low (and hence prices keen) by running Train Trax from a very small office and crammed full store-room. There is no public access at the published office address. If you turn up hoping to have a look at things, I'm afraid you will be turned away. If you'd like more information about any product, or additional photos of something, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

News from KatoUSA:

More Kato Intermodal is heading your way soon in the form of new N Gunderson MAXI-I 5-Unit Well Car sets, with new 40' Container paint schemes:     Mediterranean Shipping,  China Shipping,  Safmarine & Yang Ming. These new container releases will be sold separately as well as with new productions of the N Scale MAXI-Is in BSNF "Swoosh" and TTX New Logo paint! Pre-Orders are now open (links below), You can read more about these sets on the website.

You may have also seen pre-announcement announcements and photos of the forthcoming Kato USA Big Boy on Social media. I'll open pre-orders for these as soon as we have a confirmed ETA and pricing. They do look very impressive pieces of kit!

Pre-orders remain open for all previous announcements from Japan and the US. 

I'll be visiting the Warley Show at the NEC next weekend (probably Sunday) along with my Junior Modeller. I'm happy to stop and have a brief chat with any customers if you're there too. I'll be wearing my Train Trax branded top!

Thank you for taking time to read this newsletter. I hope you find it at least slightly useful or entertaining. If you've got any ideas for anything you'd like to be included in future editions then please do get in touch. I'd love to include some photos of reader's layouts so we can all see what you've created. For more frequent updates from Train Trax don't forget to follow the Facebook Page.
