The retailer suspends two of its exclusive models in an update issued via its website, citing lower sales than projected as the cause.
Hattons has placed development and production on two of its RTR exclusive models on hold. Posted on its website today, the affected projects are its N gauge LMS Beyer Garratt and OO gauge Plasser 12T GPC crane.
Hattons said "Due to lower sales than projected, we have made the difficult decision to suspend the OO gauge Plasser Crane and LMS Beyer Garratt. All development work will be paused and everyone with a pre-order will be notified. We will not cancel any pre-orders at this time but we will not be taking any further orders for these products."
The retailer clarified that its Genesis project isn't affected by the review and remains on track for release in Q2 2021.
