A 14er interest has been registered. An iconic train from my youth and although out of era and region is most definitely a must have.

I'm no expert on the apt at all, can anybody explain the differences between the models on offer ?  :dunce:

Black/Yellow front windows ? Was it yellow at first then changed to black or the other way round ?
Power car on the real one was in the middle ? Does that mean the model is driven from the middle as well ?

Yellow and then later black and yellow. Think it was the first train painted what became intercity executive livery so the black window surrounds were the evolution to the final executive livery.

Yes my understanding is the model will be driven from the middle. With the 6/7 car sets including a dummy and the 10/14 having two motors.

You're too quick Woodbury!  :D

An email from DJM to put on the forum.....

N & OO Gauge Crowdfunded APT Press release Friday 12th January 2018

 

With it now being 7 weeks since the surprise announcement at the Warley MRC 2017 exhibition, it is time for a progress report.

Both Durham Trains of Stanley and DJModels Ltd are very pleased with progress so far with OO, running at over 65% of the total required to be self funding in all aspects achieved, and more orders coming in on a daily basis.

The N gauge is, surprisingly, just over 25% funded so far but it is hoped that as more become aware of the project they will jump on board and order.

Adverts will soon start to appear in the press pushing the project forward into modellers consciousness, and press releases will continue to be released as we go along.

For those that do not know, this model promises to be the train a lot of you have always wished for, and to that aim we have specified and had agreed the specification which is available online, but a few things do need to be reiterated here.

 

Namely,

A working tilting mechanism in both gauges, Next18 or higher decoder socket, On board DCC sound capability, directional lighting, internal car lighting throughout, heavy metal chassis and gearing based on the best of Japanese / American Practice in design and construction, Seats with correct tartan seat and seat back design and colours, Painted and finished buffet car, fully modelled and painted cab interior with cab lighting, removable nose with accessory pack containing buffers and lifting arm for nose and NEM coupling for those that wish this feature, 5 pole skew wound motor with flywheels and a host of other fine detail you would expect for such a prestigious model.

Design still goes on in the background as it is felt that working through the design features of the model now, will give us a ‘head start’ on the model and testing before the model goes into tooling. However the thinking process on how we can make this model even better goes on, and we welcome any ideas our customers might have to help develop what could be the ultimate model electric train made.

There will be regular updates from this moment forward, and once we reach the line, and hopefully cross it, we will organise the laser scanning party at Crewe Heritage Centre.

 

Best regards

Mick Worrell (Durham Trains of Stanley)

Sorry Tank. I am pleased that Dave is keeping NGF up to date on this project. Still needs a lot of oomph to get to 100% funded.
