Hi Jon,

We are still waiting for Rapido to confirm a price and schedule.  We can't open the order book until we know how much the model will cost!

cheers

Ben A.

Thanks for keeping us updated Ben  , I will have to start selling a few more locos so I will have enough money to order one .
Or be very nice to my Mother in Law and hope she can give me some money for the next two birthdays and Christmases .
I expect it will take a while to produce as Rapido are very busy with their own products .Though they allready have all the drawings and just need the shrinking machine so most of the work is done .
I just hope it will be a bargain price like he fantastic Pendolino though I realise that prices will not be as good now .

Given that some expressions of interest are now nearly two and a half years old, and some the people doing those expressions may have moved on in various ways, can we consider this one a non-starter?

Well, me too. But my financial circumstances have certainly changed in the last two and a half years.

I was always told this was a slow burner, but it looks like either the gas has been turned off or the flame has been put out  :hmmm:   :smiley-laughing:

APT-E wasn't scrapped. It's safe at NRM Shildon although it'll never run again as the wiring was cut through when it was split for moving a few years ago.

Hello all,

We did feedback on this on the Facebook Live Q&A comments.

Nothing has changed since our last update. We have told Rapido we are ready to go, we have enough interest, but they are taking time scoping out how the design will work. 

Cheers

Ben A.
