Hello all,

Further to my quoted comment above, we are now in a position where expressions of interest have crossed into viability.

However, we canít of course get to tooling this model if those expressions donít turn into actual orders when we open the order book very soon.

Cheers

Ben A.

Very good news Ben!
What damage are we looking at for a deposit - and when would you like us to stump up?
Cheers
Carl

This is great news!
I will sign up asap.
Will the add-on coaches still be an option to run the APT-E as it would have run as a scheduled service?
If so I may be up for two plus coaches... depending on the price.

Congratulation Ben and you will have an order from me.

Now all we need is Dapol not to lose their bottle on the prototype HST.

This is really good news. It doesn't need to tilt for me to enjoy it.

Agreed - this is a complication and expense that is not necessary in my book.

The real train didnít tilt that much and in N Gauge it would look a bit silly going round some of the tight curves on our layouts so I personally wonít mind if Revolution canít get the tilting mechanism to work even though my layout has got very gentle curves.
The Pendolino looks fantastic going round my layout even though it should tilt. I have got a class 57 Thunderbird in the front as I havnt got any overhead wires and to be honest never will ,the Pendolino actually pushes the 57 which to be truthfull is on an Ian Stoat dummy  47 chassis,itís not connected to the Pendolino so when it goes into the fiddle yard I just pick it up and put on the other end readyfor the return journey.

It might be cheaper to tilt / superelevate the track?

Which is what I will be doing on my layout - although it is going to look odd having an APT belting down the Rhein!!
