  1. You did get the end of year report, which was light on detail. https://djmodels.co.uk/djm-end-of-year-thoughts-2018
  2. Catalogue images of the newly announced items are now online:- https://www.oxforddiecast.co.uk/collections/by-scale?constraint=oxford-diecast
  3. Now an email update has been issued for the 00 gauge version, it would be good for there to be an N update too. Have not seen any recent marketing of this proposal at all, so I suspect that it is withering steadily. I have placed my expressions of interest with DJModels, and originally with Durham Trains of Stanley, so should be on Dave Jones’ list for email updates.

    Dapol 142

    Try it on a piece of track not connected to the layout to eliminate the possibility of a fault which is layout track related.

    Oxford N7

    I think that Oxford ship items as each batch is completed. Can't think of a good reason to hold back stock, which costs money, and like others they might release the least popular livery first, to catch more early adopters. They have more frequent deliveries than say Bachmann, because the container/s share with the Diecast models which amount to 20-30 new items per month. I suspect that they ran one line for the N7, and to avoid confusion with different fittings, completed the pale grey version before starting on the next one.
  6. They are in the photos section of the members only Oxford Diecast Collectors Facebook Group. The version on Oxford's website will be uploaded after the London Toyfair, and shortly after that the catalogue will be online as well as a .pdf. I believe that is when the trade lists with images will go out as well.
  7. Depends what you mean by a normal Mk3; there are already loco-hauled in blue/grey livery.
  8. From 1930 the normal route for Dover export coal from Tilmanstone was an aerial ropeway. https://youtu.be/OxvdKprSsS0
  9. 92 new items announced. Worth about 4/5 months of releases at Oxford’s normal delivery pace.
  10. Based on previous year's experience, Oxford Rail new items will probably be announced around the same time at the London Toyfair, so 22 January 2019.
  11. Now expected from 7pm on Monday 21 January 2019 on the Oxford Diecast Collectors Facebook Group. Public announcement 22 January 2019.
  12. I'd forgotten about the 1/148 scale cars, another one I tried to support. Prompted me to look back over the last five years at the end of year reports, which made for interesting reading. The quote from the 2016 end of year report makes a specific reference to crowdfunding policy after the 92s are delivered. "This locomotive was planned by me when I was with a previous employer so came as no surprise to many to see me announce it as a crowdfunding venture. On the back of the 71 this project has come almost to tooling stage more quickly and wonderfully funded in both gauges by you the modeler who recognize my expertise in such models, and my full award winning history of producing models many of you run today on your layouts. It is really encouraging for me to see that you have faith in my ability, and the fact that I am trying to make a living doing this full time without an alternate source of income, and for that I thank you. I have, due to a wonderful factory, negotiated great prices for the fully specified model, and I have lots of things that I cannot announce at this time that will blow you away regarding detail, painting, and other development I cannot even hint at, at this time. Once the 92 is completed and delivered in both gauges I will not do another crowdfunded model for a good few years until the rather buoyant production and manufacture of assorted models from third parties etc has slowed down or plateau’d. This I think is the sensible approach and one which will allow me to concentrate on getting the back catalog out to you all. Talking of catalog i intend to publish a pdf catalogue in the 1st quarter which will contain some interesting info." http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/118432-djmodels-ltd-end-of-year-report-2016/?p=2557905 There probably will not be a 2018 end of year report on RMWeb, I suppose.
  13. I can see five of them. https://www.c-rail-intermodal.co.uk/index.php?route=product/category&path=18_62
  14. This looks like the post that indicates the previous DToS expressions of interest were cancelled. http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/128477-n-gauge-crowdfunded-apt-p-warley-announcement/?p=3276581
  15. It has just come up on another forum that people are unaware of the switch from the the original DToS project to the wholly DJModels one, including those who signed up with DToS. So the communication and publicity about the change has not hit the target, and is probably another reason why the numbers of EOIs is lower now.
