STOCK SITUATION - Finetrax Turnout Kits - Part 2

The owner of Finetrax has been decided to curtail all development work on the new style of Turnout Kit. The difficulties became insurmountable with costs continually mounting. As a result I have re-instated the original Fintrax Turnout kits on our website. We are low in stock (or have none) in some types/sizes and these will be ordered shortly.

Apologies to those that have been waiting for an upgraded kit.

STOCK SITUATION - Finetrax Turnout Kits - Part 1

The supplier of our Finetrax Turnout kits has been in the process of upgrading the kits to make them easier to construct. This has been an ongoing process that has taken him far longer than either of us imagined. The principle reason was production difficulties with some of the parts - when delivered to him, they were not up to his normal high standard.

Upon receipt of the information concerning the upgrade, I decided that I would hold all orders for Finetrax kits, until such time as we had the upgraded ones available. The reason for this was that the new kits do not require the purchase of a jig. Therefore by delaying orders I was trying to save customers some money! 

I was originally told that the upgraded kits would be available in a few weeks and so we therefore informed all customers with new orders of this delay, and the reason for it.

Unfortunately the delay carried on into months and so I have decided that I will remove the old style kits from the website for the time being. As soon as the upgraded ones are actually in our possession I will restore them and deal with the outstanding orders.

If you were planning on ordering the Turnout Kits please could you please check back occasionally. I will put a notice on the Home page when they are available.

I apologise for any inconvenience caused

C&L are plased to offer a selection of FlexiTrax products in N gauge, including Turnout Kits, Flexi Track and Jigs. We don't produce these kits ourselves but believe that they fill an important gap in our range, as we expand our products to cover more scales and gauges.
