Yes, still waiting for my order. My dealer told me these items are not even scheduled for a container ship yet. Thus, my layout progress is still halted. I nedd these before I can make final adjustments and screw track down.
Can you imagine if Covid hit when the San Francisco bay bridge was being built, and the sections were delayed from China? It'd have taken at least an extra year.

Yeah, there was a lot of increased demand in the past year, along with temporary shutdown of plants, so the normal stock levels ran out and they can't just get production time at will on the factories, so it will take some time to refill the stock for even very basic parts like some track pieces.

I waited 5 months for my last order from Merkur Styroplast. The prior order (pre-Covid) was 5-6 weeks. Major part of the delay was USPS clearing the DHL package. I am now waiting for a back order from Marklin for 1 item. I assume, given all the news reports, longer waits will continue for a few more months.
