This newsletter is a little later in the Month than I'd planned, as we had a busy (but very enjoyable) time at the York Show over the Easter weekend and needed some time to catch up with things. If you've subscribed recently then welcome, it's great to have you with us.

Demand for Untrack has never been higher so stock on some items is currently a little low. Please bear with us whilst we wait for new deliveries to clear customs etc.

The newest announcements from KATO Japan are now ready to pre-order, for delivery later this year. You can browse them all on the pre-order page.

Why pre-order? KATO models are generally produced in batches, so once a model has been produced it may not be available again for several years (if at all). Only a limited quantity of each KATO release makes it to the UK. During last year there have been instances where locomotive releases have completely sold out before arrival. A pre-order guarantees that the item is yours, but there is no need for you to make payment until the items are in the UK

The list includes new style Unitram packs, the all new EF55, more Taki 1000 wagons and a couple of interesting others. 

As ever, if you can't see what you're looking for then please do get in touch.

I've also included direct links to pre-orders below.

Secondly, I'd like to commend the N Gauge Society's upcoming show to you. It's due to be held at the National Railway Museum, York on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th May 2023. If you haven't heard about it can find out more on the NGS website. I'll be there as a volunteer steward.

Now there won't be a Train Trax stand at this show due to space constraints, but it is local to me in York. so to coincide with the weekend event, I'm planning informal open days at TrainTrax HQ which is just on the other side of the city centre. Think of it as a complimentary 'fringe' event to extend the fun. The idea would be to offer refreshments, cake etc on Friday afternoon and Monday morning for anyone making a long weekend of the event. There would of course be some trains running and time to chat about all things Unitrack. No purchases necessary!

Did I mention there would be cake?

Let me know if you're interested in coming by grabbing some free Eventbrite virtual tickets. Come at any time in the morning or afternoon, this just lets me plan the cake quantities.

Friday May 12th (pm):

Monday May 15th (am) :

I've enjoyed talking to customers at the York Easter Show and over the phone recently. Do get in touch if you have any queries or comments. I also love to see pictures of your Kato Creations - feel free to send in your layout photos and I may include some here in my next email.

Best wishes.
