Should be a great addition to any layout when they arrive, it was fun to test and tweak the eps so you all get a great model when they arrive...

Ive also created a close copy of the class 07 body printed on a high quality computerised resin printer which will straight swap onto the Hunslet chassis for a bit of variety in industrial settings ;)

Do we know which liveries are definitely being produced?
Apologies if I missed this.

Cheers

The models are in production, but we don't know how long it will take before they are ready to ship.  Probably another month or so - I think they are just waiting for delivery of the PCBs to complete the chassis, but the bodies are all painted.
Excellent news!

Are the instructions on the NGS order page still correct? I.e. we sit tight until we receive a balance request? (Only asking because the page itself indicates it's there for archive purposes only.)

To my amazement, I've managed to find the emails confirming that I paid my £20, so hopefully I'm in the system somewhere...   :)

Hi there

I like the sound of the 07 shunter. I have built a number of Etched Pixel's 07s on the Bachfar 04 chassis.
Have you done the 07 itself, or the Army Ruston that looked a bit like an 07?
How does it match up sizewise?

This is a hasty print AA is turned off so ignore the horizontal lines... they wont be on the finished  print... obviously this body wont be for the purists as its made to fit the Hunslet chassis which is a tad long but to be fair will be a good swap for those who fancy something different.. will print and paint a smooth one very soon....Maybe we’ll call it the Class 07.5 🤔

As you say, its Class 07.5, as it does look a bit stretched, but for those who dont like the idea of a brass kit on the right wheelbase of the 03/04, its kinda interesting. I think it would do better as the Army version (see my earlier link to the Army pic) as the loco does look a bit stretched. The windows should not be vertical on the front face, but angled, whether it is the 07 or the Army version.

Anyone got any updates as to delivery, I keep checking the club website but nothing. Chinese New year must be long gone? Getting a bit impatient,  got 3 locos with sound now need that flashing light  :D

You could do 15 flashing lights for a tenner with this!

Seems to be a separate flasher unit in the wiring, so if you need a different colour then just buy the above plus a bunch of regular prewired 0402s in the colour you want.

Alternatively just get the regular non-flashing LEDs with resistors and use a lighting effect in the decoder.  Most decoders seem to include a choice of lighting effects these days, which can be selected for each function output.  The Gyra light effect (as found on decoders aimed at the american market) would seem appropriate.

Just noting from a previous Journal update that it was hoped that these were to have been shipped at the end of March but that there was to be a "slight delay". Two and a half months on from that and over a month on from Dicky DCC's unanswered question above, is anyone on the NGS product side able to provide a current progress update? I know delivery slippages are almost inevitable with new and innovative products like this, but it would still be good to know, and in addition if there is any revised delivery timescale?

Hi all,

Apologies, hadn't seen the earleir post.

The PCBs incorporating the DCC chip, stay alive etc have taken a while longer to manufacture than we were quoted.

Once there is more concrete news we'll post it.

cheers
