Looking at that page Ben linked to, it reminds me to ask how many a Fell would sell? I rather like it in a strange way......

Hi Scotty,

Good and bad news.

The first Class 29 to be converted was D6123 in 1963 - see here:

http://www.paxmanhistory.org.uk/paxrailt.htm

Unfortunately, while the side grille and roof changes were made, this locomotive did not receive the four character headcode panel...

cheers

Ben A.


Yes, quite correct Ben, my mistake. I think the last wasn't completed until 66, so I'm talking rot. I'm not firing on all cylinders, clearly (rather like a Class 21)

Hi there,

We tried to spread the word at Warley but it's not good, TBH.  Still less than a third of the way there to even one of the types.   Shame really but there it is.

We will hopefully have a bit of a mention in the mags post Warley, and the end of January deadline might focus a few minds, but since we aren't asking for any cash I can't see why anyone would delay.

But right now not looking good and that's a shame for those who want one - or might want one in the fuure - including me!

cheers

Ben A.

Disappointing and also rather surprising. The Dapol 22 seems to have sold well with repeated runs being produced. I would have thought that a version for "north of the border" would have been equally popular.  ???

Do you have a Plan B for another loco for that development slot if the 21/29 fails to generate the necessary levels of interest.
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Hi Matt

We have a plan B on the 21/29, but to be honest we still needed there to be significantly more interest than there has been to date to make even Plan B a possibility. Hopefully there will be a late surge as more people here about it and the impending deadline for expressions of interest.

I think that we expected it to become difficult to get support for some projects, but we really didn't expect such little interest in the 21/29.

If the 21/29 doesn't come to pass we have a few ideas about what we could do next.

Cheers, Mike

Mike,

I am sure if you and Ben ever ran out of ideas then there would be plenty of others who would gladdy give a few suggestions or lists!

I rather fear that the NBL Class 21/29 will, like the Class 28 Metro-Vic Co-Bo only appear on our layouts if someone can create a body and chassis in 3D print material AND have a suitable motorised chassis to recommend.

It is looking very doubtful if any project for RTR versions in N Gauge will ever get off the ground.

However if you are interested in a 21/29 get your interest registered NOW

Chassis for the 28 is easy - it's a Farish (Poole 31) with a class 20 bogie fitted the other end. Solved problem. That works for both the old Ian Stoate kit and the current Worsley Works etched one.

I do have a basic class 28 body shell in 3D just not had the time or reason to finish it as I have an Ian Stoate one  :angel: . Some point later this year I might be prepared to look at it again, but it's a fair bit of work to put all the detail on.
