Hi everyone, 

Is it possible to get one of these loco bodies, I have looked on Shapeways website but can't see them.

Shiney Sheff There was a lot of trouble over this kit it was a member who posted on here ages ago and some members still havnt received theirs yet so I doubt you will be able to get one .
My son actually had to write a very strongly worded letter to the guy warning him that a sollicitor would be writing to him if I didnt get my money or my kit .
Its a real shame as the guy is obviously a very good modeller and had lots of plans for future kits .

I agree, Bob. A great pity as this is a very attractive little loco. that is a popular type.

 :thankyousign:

I guess the original instigator of the loco owns the copyright then, so not much chance of anyone being able to produce any?

Here are photos of the latest progress, couplings to be added, plus a little more weight and crews, otherwise completed

And finally.... both of the Trojans on test at Tremierten, they will handle a complete B set or at least 4 wagons - not bad considering their size



now that they are finished next into the paint shop will be 6619, whose bodywork was cleaned up and handrails fitted in between working on the Trojans. front lamp irons have since been fitted, and it will appear in early crest black, but I doubt that I will finish it before Tings, I started this 3 years ago so there is no point in rushing it....



Regards,

Alex

The "Trojan" twins look fantastic and their haulage capability is good, too, for their tiny size. The 0-6-2T looks like it will be anther excellent loco. but will be a long way from the Valleys! 8-)

I've always thought the 56xx to be an attractive, well proportioned loco and wish it was available in RTR. Maybe a project for Colin Heard at UM?
Not sure if any were seen in Oxfordshire, though, so an 'excuse' would be needed. ;D
