Order forms for the various versions of our new GWR 57XX/8750 0-6-0 Pannier model are attached to this message and on the Minerva website for downloading.
Since our announcement at Telford, we have confirmed production with our factory, with one small change from the original plan. This means that the batch of riveted tank 57xx’s has changed places with the 57xx with the original pattern injectors, and will now be the last to appear. This simplifies our tooling and has enabled us to slightly reduce the advance order price from the anticipated £230 to £225.
The Panniers will therefore be delivered as follows:
- 57xx Original injector
- 57xx Riveted tanks
We are also pleased to confirm that the advance order price of £225 is guaranteed up until the 31st March 2017, with production expected to commence soon afterwards. Most variants will have Top Feed, 4 x Livery variants, DC, DCC and DCC Sound options, so some research is needed to ensure you have the correct specification for your own model.
We will be at the Reading show at the start of December with loads of order forms, so do come along and see us.
