I've been thinking about doing MSW inspired layout in BR Blue days for some time, so I could be up for a handful of EM1s should someone take this on.

I`d have at least one boxed set or possibly two of the powered & unpowered models.

There was at least one occasion when the 1500v locos strayed onto the 25 kv line at Manchester due to a signalmans mistake,history does not relate to what happened to the loco.

A model of Manchester London Rd with B17s & A5 tanks conjures up visions.The OHLE was a lot simpler,basically RSJ`s with wires hanging from them.

       Cheers,Ray.

Unfortunately,there aren`t any  N kits around & not only that,a lot of folk would like to see ready to run models.

Yup, 1 powered and 1 unpowered 76 would look rather good in my new 'twin pack' boxes, that's for sure.

Obviously the tooling would have to allow for 'Tommy' too.

This has now got me thinking more about realising my dream of having them (producing them) in N gauge.

Hi Dave

Go on you know you want to  :D

Realistically I don't think you would sell enough to make it viable. From memory there were 50 Masterclass Models kits of which I have around a quarter and I know where a similar amount are and I know Chris Higgs (Masterclass Models) kept some for himself. These took around three years to sell.

Cheers

Paul
The body side grills are different for Tommy against an EM 1.

 And the cab windows but it would look good in LNER Green as no.601.

I couldn't do an EM1 without doing 'Tommy', and doing it correctly!

If a start was made now it would be three and a half to four years before you could get one, my Sheffield Vic would have been sold long before.

Not sure where you get 3 + years from mate.
If you could get enough people together (or enough 'pre sold), then work could start almost immediately.

Iv`e posted this topic on the Newrailwaymodellers forum so you never know,we may get enough interest to make this viable.

 To be honest,i didn`t think there would be so much support for these models,i must say that i`m pleasantly surprised.

When DJM Dave was Dapol Dave I am sure he hinted at MSW inspired models but I guess that was around the time of Dapol Pendolinos and all manner of electrics.

Back to the present, I always liked the idea of two sets of sidings that acted as a changeover from electric to diesel and vice versa that would allow me to have trains moving from one to the other without the need for a fiddlyard.  Pity I have no invested so much in a GW/SR single line layout.

I agree with you on that, but my changeover would be from electric to steam/diesel :D
