I'm all for manufacturers testing the market by making announcements to see what the reaction would be like. If it works to help remove some of the risk with a limited market, all well and good. It's a bit naïve to take an announcement as a 'letter of intent' in this day and age.

But when the announcement comes with 3D CAD imagery I HOPE it can be taken seriously ......... we all understand that the best made plans can become derailed later in the process but in one particular case, it's getting on for four years since such an announcement and nothing official has been heard of the product since* ( it's understood that the original designer is no longer involved ! )

 

* though it's still on the commissioning Company's website

The 'blocking move' comment was not directed at the - relatively recently announced - E1 ......... but there are other items which don't appear to have advanced for a long, long time.

 

If the comment is not aimed at the E1, then you may find that the E1 thread is not the place to be making it.

Edit: I see that burgundy has already posted this. Sorry for duplication. Moral? Read the full thread before responding to a post!

I just want to point out that this year is flying by us, and it will probably be midway through 2019 before we know it. That means that for them to reach the 2020 production date we should probably be seeing physical samples in the next 6-8 months surely. Unless there are massive delays, (Bachmann H2 WHERE ARE YOU?!), I would think progress should be quite quick.

If - a very important word - things go well you can have final product 9 to 12 months after first sample.  That would mean a physical sample could be as late as December 2019 for a 2020 release, or up to 18 months to wait.

 

But that is all speculation and all very dependent on that word IF.  But don't start panicking if there are no samples by the end of this year as that is highly unlikely.

They've only just been announced less than a month ago!

 

Reminds me of the sofa adverts "I WANT IT ALL, I WANT IT NOW!".*

To which one might reasonably, and sensibly, add 'patience'.

Well, if they spend all day playing cards with themselves, it’s no wonder it takes ages to produce a toy engine.

For those who really cannot wait, there are two perfectly acceptable kits of the E tank.

One is a SEFinecast whitemetal kit; the other is an Albion etched brass kit. Spot which is which.

What happens when yer don't apply enough coats of varnish. Caught up with this example yesterday at a small show at Moors Valley, I built 25 years ago for my old Bembridge layout ( now on Mark Pretious, Merstone layout). An old Wills body kit on a scratchbuilt chassis using Gibson side-frames. Now I'm thinking of getting another one( plus L&Y 2-4-2T, 50705) for the 'paddy' trains on my new layout based on the Cannock area, which includes colliery exchange sidings, now that'd get 'rivet-counters' scratching their heads. :sungum:
