CONFIRMED RELEASE FROM ATLAS EDITIONS
I can confirm that the following model has now been released:
4649123 ERF LV Flatbed

CONFIRMED RELEASE FROM OXFORD DIECAST
I can confirm that Oxford Diecast have now released the following model:
76VOL01LED Oxford Diecast Volvo FH12 Eddie Stobart "LED Teletubby"

This model is believed to be identical to Atlas Editions model 4649105 but is marketed in Oxford packaging and with an Oxford stock code.

I understand from Oxford Diecast that as part of the licensing agreement with Atlas Editions, Stobart will take 500 of each Atlas model for sale through their own shops and Oxford Diecast will be releasing a few of the Atlas models in their own packaging. The Oxford models will not go on sale through Oxford until they have been released by Atlas Editions for 12 months.

CORGI JANUARY TO JUNE 2014 CATALOGUE - TEXT AND PHOTOGRAPHS
Further to my news of Friday last week, please click on the links below to view official media photographs of the newly announced models:

1/50th scale

CC13742 Scania R (Rear Tag) Log Trailer Eddie Stobart, Carlisle, Cumbria 

Eddie Stobart has been operating this Scania V8 R Series truck with dedicated log trailer since 2011. It operates in the South of Scotland and Northern England delivering freshly cut logs from local forests to a variety of wood yards. Many of the logs delivered are used in the manufacture of garden fence panels. 
In the 1970s Eddie Stobart built its high profile brand based on the courtesy of its drivers, the quality of its fleet and exceptional service. These benchmark standards remain intact, but Stobart also understands the customer service, employment practices and environmental challenges that face modern businesses today. Over the last few years the group has evolved beyond its position as an independent road transport and logistics business into a leading UK provider of multinational transport and logistics solutions. AVAILABLE MAY 2014

Today, Stobart Rail is one of the most respected organisations in the industry yet the company remains vigilant of the need to meet and respond to the challenges of an ever changing environment.

BACK FROM HOLIDAYS
I had a great holiday and managed to fit in some Eddie spotting with a couple of hundred new spots recorded. I visited Carlisle and Newark depots during my travels and thanks to the Tracking App for my iPhone I managed to spot loads on our journey to and from Scotland. My wife joked that she should get honorary membership to the Spotters club for her skills using the App whilst I was driving and my daughter was shouting out fleet names as we passed them!

Whilst visiting Carlisle Deport I photographed Stobart Rail Scania R560 Fleet number RV232 as represented by Atlas Editions model number 4649121. CLICK HERE to visit the Gallery pages to view my photograph.
