Back now from a well needed holiday and delighted to be shipping products to our customers again. All orders received while we were away will be processed in order of placement.
PECO RELEASE PC90
Peco have released PC90 Parkside OO BR(E) 13 ton steel body hopper wagon. We have already had a number in and out, but supplies from Peco are limited. Our part number KPC9000, (also in EM and P4). We are doing our best to maintain stock, but usually waiting on deliveries. It is really down to Peco.
We have now resumed international shipments, with a few changes. At present we are only shipping items that can go by post. This means that there are limitations with a maximum of 610mm packed length, maximum of 2kg with no Royal Mail banned or dangerous items. After suffering a number of postal losses at the end of last year we are now tracking all international shipment for security which has increased the shipping costs. We are working on resuming international courier deliveries over the next few weeks.
Deliveries to Europe are currently being shipped without VAT being added, so shipments will be subject to Tax and Handling charges at your border and will need to be paid by you. We are close to implementing a Tax paid solution using IOSS which will slightly increase the shipping cost but should be a lot cheaper than the Post/Courier Tax handling charges. We will keep you informed of progress.
We have also been told by Swann Morton that we are no longer able to send their Blades to USA, Canada and Australia. This seems to be caused by some complexity of CE marking and medical grade products. Although the products we sell are not declared Sterile, the rules still apply. Beaurocratic hogwash that we have to follow.
WELCOME TO THE NEW EILEENS EMPORIUM WEBSITE
WE HAVE BEEN OPEN ALL THROUGH THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS, AND ARE STILL OPEN FOR BUSINESS
Once again, thanks to all our customers for their support and tolerance during this crisis. We hope you find the new website easy to use. If you have any issues please let us know.
We are open for business and trying as hard as we can to get as many orders out as possible. It is much more efficient for us if you are able to place your orders on the website.
Please note, most products are normally in stock (in normal times}. These are not normal times and suppliers are having issues, so we some normally stocked items are slow to arrive. An item being shown as available to order does not guarantee they are in stock at that time.
With so many people active at home the supply chain has been sucked dry on many items. Stock is now our main issue. We are getting lots of stock in, but many are taking much longer than usual to supply. Many of our suppliers are in the same situation as we are, so stock levels are a serious issue. If we have stock orders are quick to process, however where there are shortages it takes at least twice as long to deal with. Please do not chase us until at least a week has elapsed as this also slows us down, and then by email please.
We are awaiting deliveries from Gibson Wheels, HMRS transfers, some many Peco/Ratio/Parkside products, many Gaugemaster products and several other items. We are doing our best to resolve these issues. We will try to notify customers of problems as we process their orders. We are seeing orders for quantities way beyond our normal stock levels on many item, so we are unable to guarantee delivery from stock.
Please do not send orders by post, they will not be processed, we have not been in a position to accept cheque payments since all our local banks closed.
We thank you all in advance for your understanding. Stay safe, keep well, keep modelling.
We want to support our customers so, with no shows to collect from, we have now reduced the threshold of our free UK (excluding IOW) and CI postage from £100 to £30 for a large letter and £50 for all other shipments. This is applied automatically at checkout and applies to web orders only. We do not offer free delivery on telephone orders.
Royal Mail now require that we send all blades on a signed for, proof of age service. We soon will also be offering signed for on UK and International too.

ALL EXHIBITIONS PLANNED FOR THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE ARE CANCELLED
