R class shipping details - just in case.

       Mindful of concern being expressed over the concentration of all the R class eggs in one container basket so to speak and the possibility of losing the container overboard in a typhoon, the Eureka staff in Hong Kong investigated the possibility of dividing the shipment in two and arranging alternative shipping for the second half of the cargo.
       Shipping is pretty tight out of China at the moment but the Eureka staff eventually located possible cargo space and is investigating the economics of such a course of action. Shipping time may be a little bit longer but the increased safety arising from dividing the cargo in two would provide increased certainty and peace of mind.
       For those who are interested a photo of the alternative vessel being considered can be found at:

And Now...the R Class

                                                                            MV Cosco Dalian at Port Phillip Heads 01/10/13

               The factory has advised that Motor Vessel "Cosco Dalian" will leave Hong Kong on the 27th of October with a loading that includes a container of Eureka Models' R class locomotives bound for Port Botany where it is expected to arrive on the 7th of November, 2013. Allowing for the usual 3/4 days to clear Customs, the cargo of R class should be delivered to Eureka around the 10th of November.
              Distribution will commence immediately and should be complete before the end of December.
              Each orderer will be contacted to confirm order details before a model is consigned to the postal system.  Those orders that have been confirmed prior to arrival will be posted first. Packages will be sent receipted delivery and will have to be signed for, generally at the local post office.
              Those with balances owing should contact the Eureka office prior to the arrival of the shipment to avoid delays in delivery.
