I am looking at apt-p first might have a look at apt-e afterwards and the hst prototype

Thank you for the,advice Alan


I'd be up for an HST protype as well, I saw it numerous times running through Leicester on test from Derby.

Someone was flogging an HST protoype on E-bay the other day, got quite a lot for it as well  ;) ;) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/310613365343?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Oh and I'm sure a certain Vinyl producer could produce the necessary vinyls for it as well  ;) ;)

Regards

Neal.

I've wanted one (or more) of these for years, both the APT-P and APT-E. I'll be keeping a close eye on this project.

I have some drawings of both trains, which i passed to RusssellH when we were discussing such a project.

Good luck with it.

Cheers, Timmo

Looks in the right ballpark for a coach shell articulated each end (the non articulated end has differences)

i've never tried or seen any of the vinyls, how do they work?

more to the point would they mean that i would only have to get the profile and the lengths right and the vinyls provide the detail etc on the surface

There isn't much surface detail on APTs anyway apart from the door and underframes so I'm not sure that vinyls make much difference to the bodyshell design.

Have you got the GA drawings?

Cheers, Mike

The Farish 91 should be a reasonable fit the the 49xxx power car, I think.

Bogies are very similar, as the 91 was the final development of the APT project. 125mph, disc-braked and non-tilting - pah!  :veryangry:

Don't forget tho that the 91s were designed for 140mph, but the infrastructure was not up to it.... Sound familiar???

Think I have drawings somewhere - will look.

Note the tapered ends on the power cars too.
