Fifty-six members of the class numbered D 9550-D9555

Shome mishtake shurely? D 9500-D 9555, perhaps?

Especially since @TEDDYBEAR D9521 shows a photo of D 9502.

It would be handy if you offered some unpainted models for us doer-upers :)

We would probably have to charge a higher price for them.

The Guildford 0 Gauge Group, which organises the Reading Trade Show, suggested that we extend the deadline for discounted orders for the Minerva RTR Class 14 Teddy Bear 0-6-0DH locomotive until the end of the show on Saturday 7th December. We are pleased to announce the deadline has been extended to all orders received by 2359GMT Sunday 8th December 2019. Order forms can be downloaded from the Minerva website at https://www.minervamodelrailways.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/Class-14-Order-Form.pdf or you can place your order at the Minerva stand at the Reading show. We do not take deposits for advance orders and there is no penalty for cancellation.

 

The final version of the CAD has been approved and the project now goes to tooling.

I think it is safe to say that as soon as there is news, it will be reported on these pages pdq.

We have recently been informed that the first engineering prototype should be delivered by the end of March 2020. If it is satisfactory we will progress to the decorated samples and if they pass we would hope to have the locos by late July or early August 2020. However, the recent extension of the Chinese New Year holiday and the closure of the border between Hong Kong and mainland China in order to try to contain the coronavirus may impede progress. 

 

We will keep you posted. 

 

Regards,

 

Chris K
