Those are very impressive, @Ben A . Looking forward to my bright orange CEGB one for use as my Udesor Grain terminal shunter.  Feels like really rapid progress has been made with these.

Ben, thanks for the comprehensive update and photos. I'm mightily impressed with all of them, this project is coming together nicely.

I've never been that interested in diesels or industrial locos for that matter, but I have two of these on order and if this is the standard of model then I reckon I can see a third being on the cards.

Many thanks for all the hard work that is going in on this project by everyone.

I can see me adding to the three on order already.
Any chance of a quick video of it running
Cheers

Hi all,

Thanks for the positive comments - much appreciated. 

The engineer in China has done a very good job on the CAD and the tooling is really lovely, and we should also acknowledge the oversight of Colin Allbright. 

I believe his experience in designing the Farish 04 and 03 were invaluable in ensuring the model was as heavy as practicable and the internal arrangement was optimised. 

Colin's assessment is that for a first EP this is very good, and he is confident that what small niggles there are should be relatively straightforward to solve. 

My view is that in managing any project one of the most important elements is finding the right designers, engineers and manufacturers to work with.

I did record a video of the model in action and have sent it to the NGS publicity officer to be loaded onto our website in due course.

Going forward, and with the usual caveats, I think that painted samples by TINGS and models in production before the end of 2018 are not unrealstic aims.

Cheers

Ben A.

Good morning Ben

Thank you for this update and thank you for your work on the project, one of the many hats you have these days.

These look fantastic, it was only seeing the photo with one loco next to a small 4 wheel wagon in the background that reminded me how small these are.

May I ask what the current thinking is with livery options and how many will survive into production? Apologise if I have missed this....

All currently advertised livery options will be produced.

They look absolutely stunning and are a credit to all the hard work invested in them by the team. Can’t wait to get my hands on the ones I’ve ordered!

Well, that's certainly encouraged me to get a pre-order in for one within the next week, even if I have got a US outline layout..... :thumbsup:

I am seriously considering ordering a few more of these for conversion to other models.  At an estimated price for a mechanism and DCC controller for such a small footprint 0-6-0 they look to be a good investment.

@Ben A   Ben is there an option for buying the mechanisms without bodies for less or will the undercoated model be available for less?

Hi all,

Pricing is down to the shopkeeper.  We are getting some undecorated models.

Cheers
