A number of other companies also produce in China for the UK model train market, so I'd expect them to also have the same difficulties even if they don't publicise them.

We can but we wouldn’t be able to afford the resultant higher prices.

Not a problem Sandy - I’m just keeping myself occupied.
Incidentally, I have seen someone on eBay selling resin replicas of the water tender (unpainted) - tempted to add one to my collection at some point. However if I do, I may go for a double tendered A4 for a bit of variety.
