UM Dean Goods price + pre-ordering
« on: August 15, 2015, 07:40:55 pm »
Hello all,

Colin H. emailed me earlier today with a few details about the new model.

"The Dean Goods should be ready at the end of next month. It will be in early BR black and GWR green with GREAT WESTERN on the tender side. Price looks like 72 plus 3 post."

He didn't want to take pre-orders too early but is happy to do so now (telephone 01624 852896, email colin.h@manx.net).

Can't wait to see these!

Cheers, NeMo

Cheers Nemo
I've always rather fancied a Dean Goods (even though its a bit out of my era and a bit alien to West/North Cornwall).
I'll give Colin a call next week.
I love the UM models despite their lack of detail.

Great, thanks for posting NeMo

I'll be having one of those.

Need to "DCC" it but I've fitted a CT Electronix chip to a Union Mills LNER J25 so I guess it'll be a repeat of that procedure.

Colin is going to be getting a few calls over the next few days :D

Dean Goods!  :drool:

I can't wait to see a picture. I haven't bought anything from UM before simply as this is Colin's first GWR loco but I may take a punt. Just to be awkward, I want one in post-war livery with GWR on the tender.

I wonder if he can do a green unbranded one for me to apply my own transfers?  :hmmm:
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Usually Colin is happy to supply an undecorated version provided you order it before the main batch is done.

He'll absolutely do that for you if you ask. I have an S&DJR blue loco without transfers so that I can apply my own. Give him a call.

Just dropped Colin a line and he replied very quickly that he would be happy to supply an undecorated one if requested and he just needed to know in advance so he could put one to the side. He also said that other livery versions would probably follow in due course.

Now that is what I call customer service.  :thumbsup:

Just pre-ordered my UM Dean Goods (in BR Black).
Colin seems to think that they will be ready for despatch late September or early October.

I would like to see a photo of one first as another member said the tenders are very low and I'm wondering how Colin has managed to get the motor and gearing down so low to give it the true look of a Dean Goods .
