"Signal Light Control PCBTraffic Light Controlled Track Isolation"
Phew - that's a mouthful :goggleeyes:

Good to see communication being made with those who have ordered.
Nelevator makes perfect sense but what on earth are they going to name the 00 version? :D
Elevat00r?

I'm a little worried about the shipping costs, I ordered a kit version as I'm overseas and shipping a fully assembled unit may be expensive.

from Newsletter (page 1)

Kit Build Nelevators
You may have noticed that that we have removed the option for kit build Nelevators from our website.

We have done this as we feel that we do not currently have time to support this option as we can foresee customers requiring a significant amount of assistance with the kit builds. We may bring this option back in the future, but for now all units will be delivered assembled. Any customers that need to assemble “on site” e.g. in a loft, then please let us know so that we can support your installation.

may be worth getting in touch?? its a long way to send the van...

I have had my Nellie delivered today and despite having no layout ready it was placed where I wanted it and tested with a short demo for me. A lovely piece of work and exceeds my expectations from when I first expressed an interest.

Great news. All you need now is the rest of the layout to stop the Nelevator becoming a very expensive display cabinet. ;)

I had mine delivered a few weeks ago and it has been brilliant. First time I have had all my collection out of boxes at the same time. Also helps stop my 2 year-old and 5 year old reaching for them.

Hi, may I ask what your order number was/is please so those of us waiting delivery can gauge where they are up to. Shame we have to do this but haven't had any response to emails, facebook or via their website.

Cheers Barry

I suspect your wait will be years... I’d heard Alan had an apprentice to help install them all, which will hopefully speed things along a bit.

Hi all,

I popped over to see Allen today to help him with some of the scenics on his new home layout "Chirk", which replaces his Ribblehead which was sadly destroyed when a tree fell on the building housing it during a storm.

Chirk depicts the rail viaduct and canal aqueduct spanning the Ceiriog valley.  The bridges are both 3D printed primarily.



Nearly all of the work is Allen's, I just did the River Ceiriog in this scene.





The water towards the front looks reasonable, but a little more work is still needed toward the back of the visible area.  I'll probably try to visit Allen again over the Xmas period to get this sorted.

We were chatting about the Nelevators and he is now getting through the N-gauge deliveries at a reasonable rate, though there is a fair amount of work in each one and demand has significantly exceeded his expectations I think!

Apologies for the slightly tangential post!

Cheers

Ben A.
