B H E are hoping to release the Prototype H S T soon it will only be a 3D printed Power car but Electro Graphics can do vynals for the coaches ,I have got one of the test prints and three coaches and a dummy Scotrail 47 on.my layout and a photo of that formation running on the Great Central North if I new how to I would put some pictures on here. I have tried but Im useless at technology.

However I have expressed interest in a complete powered set from Revolution if it goes ahead ,another family Christmas or Birthday  present sorted .

They would look good as a line up
Prototype H S T
APT E
HST
VOYAGER
POPPYLINO
That would be amazeing.

Just to give people a quick update after a week or so of this potential project announcement we have reached approx. 25% of the total we would realistically need to make this go ahead.

On the question about tilt less than 10% of people have said that they wouldn't purchase without tilt (though we are actively investigating articulated tilt).

Cheers, Mike

Thanks for the update Mike

The info in the next round of model railway magazines should bring a good boost and all of us who have expressed interest so far will keep spreading the word!!

Good stuff, Mike. I'll keep mercilessly plugging away via the ERG Facebook page and in the next website update.

I really want this to happen and one day to see APT-E tilting over Ribblehead Viaduct...

EDIT: I've added a link to the project page from the Electra home page and What's new page. Let's charge those turbines!!

Tilt would be marvellous, the Fleischmann ICE T looks incredible indeed! Fire up the turbines and bring the APT-E   :claphappy:

Ive allready expressed interest in the A P T- E as I like the unusual things My Proto Type HST looks quite good  it was painted by Stuart Wright of this Forum ,with three coaches with Electra Graphics  Vynals and as I said has a dummy Scotrail  47  on the end .
When I finaly work out the instructions from Only Me I might be able to put pictures on here Paul has told me before how to do it but Im so thick when it comes to this that I just get confused ,it must be my grey matter is dying.My son has also tried to show me but hes given up as well.

I'm dying to know how well the expressions of interest are going for this... and desperate to hear that it's going ahead!

Hi Mark,

It's not at the stage yet where we can say for sure that it's going ahead, but we have the Warley National Model Railway show at the NEC coming up and we are hoping to raise awareness of this project there.  We are on stand B029, next to Rapido.

But I think Mike and I have always felt this one could be something of a slow burn, so we won't be too disheartened if it takes longer than other projects to generate the required levels of interest.

Cheers

Ben
