A BIG APOLOGY FOR LOSS OF SERVICE
I must apologise for the apparent lack of updates on the website since January this year. I only discovered recently that my hosting company had changed their servers in January and therefore any updates I thought I was publishing have not been published. I don't usually view the published website via my browser (as I view it through the web publishing software), hence I did not pick up that my updates were not publishing, a big lesson learned! Sadly there are very few Stobart models being released at the moment so updates tend to be sparse, but normal service is resumed from my end and any news I do receive, I will ensure is published asap after I receive it.

SUGGESTIONS REQUIRED FOR ITEMS I CAN INCLUDE ON THE WEBSITE
As mentioned above, there are very few Stobart related releases at the moment, does anyone have any suggestions as to other items of interest I can include on the site so I can publish more updates of interest to Stobart enthusiasts CLICK HERE to email me, if you have any ideas for me to consider.

ATLAS EDITIONS - ARTICLE AMENDED 15/5/18
Since posting my article, I have read reports of people still being able to contact Customer Services and being told that their collections will be completed. Very strange, I am not sure what is going on. The message below is currently displayed on the Atlas Editions Home page. All I know is my World of Stobart collection was cut short and I was told that they did not have stock of the three models I was missing. Despite this, the same models are amongst those that have been disposed
to the retail market: 

"Dear Collectors,

Please be advised that with immediate effect, it is no longer possible to place orders for new collections. 

Here at Atlas Editions we are totally committed to providing excellent customer service, and we want to reassure our customers with existing orders or collections that nothing has changed; all deliveries will continue on the same terms as previously.

You can also continue to manage your online account and make payments exactly as before. If you need to create an account, please complete the orange box below.

CORGI 2018 CATALOGUE
The Corgi January to June 2018 catalogue was announced this morning and there are no Stobart vehicles included, indeed there are no trucks of any sort announced which does seem to indicate that Corgi have dropped their Truck range completely.

CORGI 2018 CATALOGUE
Corgi have advised today that their new catalogue will be released at 10:00 on Monday 8th January 2018. No clues have been given as to the contents of the catalogue.
