Re: [SergentEng] Re: Accurail Scale Draft Gear Availbility

Hi folks,
 
The narrow shank couplers are extremely slow moving compared to the compatible shank couplers. Once I ran out of draft gear boxes, I had little interest in a bulk buy from Accurail that would last 15 years or more, so I started looking into options for lower quantities and noticed they were standard products from Accurail even in bulk (and shown as in stock at the time). My options were (1) to spend big bucks on lots of very slow moving inventory (2) to buy smaller quantity and raise my price on the EN couplers to cover the extra cost of buying the boxes in lower quantity, or (3) quit acting like a middle man and just let my customers buy directly from Accurail. I chose door number 3. Since then, Accurail has indicated these are Temporarily Unavailable. I would recommend contacting them for an anticipated return date of the product. The more demand they have for this product, the more likely they are to bring it back quickly.

Maybe because Accurail can't supply the parts to Sergent.
