The first engineering samples for the E Wagon project arrived in the week prior to Chinese New Year.
The samples are excellent. The detail is accurate and fine. The interior detail on the open wagons is particularly impressive and provides a very nice view for those who like to run their wagons empty.
The factory has stated that these are the first samples and that they will be making further improvements. At the same time the samples are being checked at this end for any necessary improvements or corrections.
In November last year the factory advised that they expected to deliver the 1st samples in the week before Chinese New Year and this is precisely what they did. This is very promising for the dates that have been supplied by the factory for our other projects currently in the pipeline.
The next steps will involve making any corrections that are necessary, preparing artwork and then proceeding to production.
