  1. The chip is above the wheels but well clear of them - the DCC socket is mounted on the side of chassis block within the side tank so the rebate in the footplate allows the body to fit over it when you're reuniting body and chassis. You can see in this close up the socket inside the tank above the middle axle.
  2. Sorry for the delay responding to this - we have been awaiting a final sample model with a couple of small but important changes, in order to be able to sign off full production. This obviously has a knock-on effect on the schedule and our estimate for delivery of the Victory is now going to be Summer 2022. Full details on what we changed, and why, can be found in our latest email update: https://mailchi.mp/a513a3ea1d58/a-later-victory-sounds-sweeter As we note in the update we're disappointed to push out the expected date for the loco, but we have made these changes for good reasons and the results should be worth it.
  3. The Sentinel looks fantastic, I'd love a DL cab version. I have a little concrete miniature of the recently demolished Dorman Long tower which is probably too small to work as a backscene but I'm sure I'd find a way...
  4. It has been done, with very small Japanese N gauge mechanisms and I think possibly an Arnold KoF. - the recent Kato Portram would comfortably fit but the wheels are too small and hard to change. I think the sound chip and speaker would have to go in subsequent wagons though!
  5. Apologies for the delay getting back to you on this. Following the review of the decorated samples we opted to make some minor internal changes to the model to optimise performance of the sound fitted version, this along with unpredictable manufacturing and transport logistics has pushed the schedule out so I think we are looking at after Christmas now. We are just finalising the plan and will share a full production update soon.
  6. Just to say that the Planet Industrials variant in Grimethorpe Colliery-inspired orange and grey livery is now in stock and all pre-orders have been dispatched. These are going to really suit heavy weathering and James is working on a tutorial video at the moment. https://www.lightrailwaystores.co.uk/products/pir-001 They also look pretty good in longer rakes
  7. DLG and Merddin as currently running are also slightly larger (i.e. 13":ft) in the superstructure than the original locos. The new build James Spooner is meant to be featuring the targa roof.
  8. I don't think Heljan ever proposed one. Roco announced a double Fairlie around 2009 but it never came to anything.
  9. Not where I'd guessed they might go next in 009, but very glad they have!

  11. It's still on the radar. We're working through some production issues with the bespoke chassis but hope to have some updates soon.
  12. Just to clarify, as we've had a few queries - Rails has come on board as a retail partner with stock of all Victory liveries, including their exclusive ROD loco. We (Planet Industrials) are still offering direct sales through the Light Railway Stores marketplace, and will be fulfilling all directly placed orders ourselves. No customer data for direct orders is passed on to Rails.
  13. Will have to ask @James Hilton to do the honours here as it's his thread. You can technically still pre-order a loco, just no longer with the discount.
  14. We're pleased to welcome Rails Of Sheffield as our exclusive retail partner for the Kerr, Stuart, "Victory" in 00 gauge. You can now pre-order all versions of the loco with them, including the previously unannounced 5th livery - a limited edition lettered as ROD 608 (Railway Operating Division) - this one is only available from Rails!
