This N gauge model is at the design stage, and is available to express an interest now.
Please note this expression replaces the old site’s one as customer details have been purged from my system to allow fresh ‘interests’ to take place.
Please only make an expression if you are certain you intend to invest in the model development, as your ‘expression’ may be the one that puts the model into production, anyone who drops out or in fact does not have any intention of ordering will be doing the whole project a disservice. Pre-orders will not open until the ‘expression of interest’ level reaches break even figure.
Once that limit is reached, we will open the system for pre-orders, secured with a 50% deposit, with the remaining balance further into the tooling ‘window’ for the project. This will pay for tooling and the model you ordered, including VAT. Shipping will be added to the second and final payment when that comes due.
Although i had stated i would not do any more funded models, the demand for this model has grown so much recently i would ask for ‘expressions’ to see if this could be a viable, and quicker way to bring the model to the market place.
It may be that expressions do not cover tooling and production, and if so i will reconsider potential funding areas accordingly.
This is possibly ‘the’ must have locomotive for anyone modelling the Great Western Railway or BR transition period.
Featuring a wealth of detail using original plans and pictures, including a loco mounted coreless motor and a DCC Next-18 decoder socket along with profile blackened wheels and NEM coupling pockets as standard, traction tyres on rear drivers with spare drivers available for 2mm conversion, Space within the tender for a DCC sound speaker.
The final website only price is yet to be confirmed, but is expected to be in the region of £139.95 inc shipping to UK buyers! RRP will, when it eventually reached stockists, be more.
