Gm should be fine Mick, morley would depend on if it has feedback or not, coreless
Motors dont like feedback controllers

Thanks, Paul. My Morley Vortrack has no feedback and is perfectly OK with the Farish coreless motored locos I have. :sweat:

My Morley V is also without feedback, believe me it wouldn’t go near my beloved 92 if it did!

Hello all,

In February 2016 at Model Rail Scotland we ran the first working sample of the Pendolino at Model Rail Scotland on the wonderful "Law Junction" layout by East Neuk MRC.

Today, nearly two years and lots of work later, at the Chiltern MRC show at Stevenage, they very kindly allowed us to showcase the final, production models - with 390104 Alston Pendolino seen here speeding southbound:





The full production run of models is scheduled to leave the factory this week.

Cheers

Ben A.

Very good review with 92% overall rating in February edition.

Also some surprises for the sound fitted locos!! (But not for regular Pendo travellers!!)

Hello all,

Rapido say the Pendolinos will be leaving the factory on January 17th, meaning that they should be here by the end of February at the latest.

For the latest Rapido newsletter - with more information about the Pendo and other projects and a cool photo of two Pendos passing on Kinlet Wharf - see here:

Be patient I keep getting told. They will be here when they arrive and no earlier.
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

They were only due to leave the factory yesterday, so likely sitting on a dock somewhere.

All the Chinese drive like madmen, big lorry smashes all the time.
they loose containers regularly and there was that big explosion at the container depot last year.
They could drop it in the sea from a malfunctioning crane, and even if they get it on the boat it could hit another one and sink.
then they have to sneak past North Korea, then there are the pirates in the Straights of Malaca,
Hopefully it gets to the Suez Canal, avoiding the Somali pirates and the silkworm missiles from Yemen, there could still be another middle East flair up.
Even the Med is fraught with danger from more pirates and people traffickers and striking French fishermen.
UK customs are bound to go on strike as will the road hauliers unions. We will be lucky to have them by Christmas.

(Have I missed anything :D)
