Thanks to the original poster I have one of Derek Rutherford's models of the W1 in original form. It really is a super model.

Nice one Jon. I don't think any of the major manufacturers will produce a model of the W1, so it's up to us scratch builders. A unique model for your layout.

How about the holy grail of n gauge locos, a P2 in original condition?

Has anyone else successfully made one? The chassis itself must present difficulties!

Mike, I've not forgotten this and think I've figured out the problem areas in the cad! Progress is slow as I'm fighting the keep the ice rink I teach at open at the moment (I would judge this a successful at the moment as it should've closed two weeks ago! However, we're not out of the woods yet...).

Best of luck with the ice rink Steve, I know which project is the more important, so we'll just have to wait on the P2. I hope you succeed on both fronts.
