Ben

Great news on the 21/29

I will put my name down for one and take either the 21 or 29, whichever hits the 1200 first

Will there be an option in the crowd funding to confirm order for either or to help meet the 1200 target

Thanks

I don't think any 21s made it to BR Blue? Although obviously the 29s did.

Class 21 D6109 was painted in BR Blue not long before withdrawal.

There are a few threads about on various forums and a few photos are around, from what I have found it was not suitable for a full Class 29 upgrade with the Paxman engine but received a reconditioned MAN engine, it did find itself repainted.

Annoyingly D6109 appears to have had the front end modifiations done before they realised it wasn't suitable for conversion, so the front end has the headcode box and looks like a 29, even though the engine was not changed.

I suspect the bodyside grilles and roof details would have been left as they were, since the engine was not changed, but I have not confirmed this.

cheers

The site should have stated your interest has been received. To my knowledge you will only be contacted when the success/failure to hit the target is known.

Slightly OT, but by freaky coincidence, earlier today I bought an N-gauge RTR model of an electric locomotive built by NBL. Not the class you might imagine, however. Hopefully a good omen for the project though  :thumbsup:
