Have added my name to the list.  I just hope I don't have to part with any more cash before I've ordered a few more "Esso" tank wagons!

Interest expressed also.

In the event that it reaches the required threshold and goes ahead I'm sure there will be many design considerations that differ from it's 00 cousin. Personally I am not at all bothered whether it tilts or not but I would hope it could be persuaded round at least R2 curves otherwise mine would of necessity end up as a "shelf queen" and I'd hate that.

I expressed interest based on the money being late 2018 and early 2019 with this level of interest I may be in trouble, but I'll have to find a way. Protype HST a year or so later please money to challenging at the moment.

Signed up for one.

Just got to have one of these, can I ask that the cost be spread evenly and over a bit longer.

Cheers

Likewise, interest expressed and saving but I do hope the HOA wagons come on stream first.

Hello all,

I am sure the HOA wagons will remain ahead of the putative APT-E as the CADs are already complete.

Several people have commented on the possibility of tilt.  I believe there are some continental/Japanese models that have tilt - ICE, some Shinkansen? - does anyone on this group own any of these models?  If so how does the tilt work, and how effective is it?  If you have more than one tilt model which is the best, and why?

It's very early days for the APT-E but assessing how others have gone about recreating tilt would be useful; I have no tilting models myself.

Cheers

Ben A.

The ICE-T works on the same principle as the Hornby APT-P it has wedges on the bogies and underside of the bodyshell which when they turn results in the body tilting!

I was also going to suggest using the Hornby APT tilt mechanism for inspiration - it's simple and works.

Are there plans to release extra centre cars, should anyone want to (unprototypically) extend their set beyond 4-coaches? Rapido did this with the OO version but I don't know what the uptake was like.

Shinkansens don't tilt, the routes are designed so that's not necessary, but some conventional "Limited Express" trains do. The example I have is the Kato E351 "Super Azusa", the tilt is very effective and visible on curves, e.g.:



I'm not in the mood to dig it out at the moment (it's late and I'm tired), IIRC the mechanism is as described for the APT/ICE-T in above posts.

Individual cars are available 2nd hand quite cheaply here, I could easily acquire an example if required.

Hi there,

Just dug out a couple of videos and the Super Asuza does seem to tilt very effectively - thanks.

Cheers
