News reaches us that Roger Chivers, currently on one of his frequent trips
to Australia and expected to return to UK before Christmas, has been
diagnosed with serious heart condition and advised that he must not fly.
The earliest date at which he might return home is the end of January 2003,
assuming the medics succeed.
Accordingly, members are advised that all outstanding orders for Chivers
products cannot be dealt with until February 2003, at the earliest.
Members seeking the recently released plastic bogie vehicles designed to
complement the Bachmann Porters, and reviewed in Narrow lines by Howard
Clarke MIGHT find stock at EDM Models, see the advert in Narrow Lines.
We wish Roger well and hope for successful treatment. If appropriate news
will be posted here.
