Expression of interest duly made - OO gauge DCC sound.

 

Happy to let the typos in the flyer slide - some of the emails that I have dashed off in haste are horrendous in that respect.  Let those who are without sin etc.

 

Cheers

Now if it actually had 4 motors and a working replica of the gearbox inside, I might be interested! I have played with the sectioned miniature at NRM.

I've got a Lego version with 2 motors driving through a single diff...almost enough to make 'Chard loose his lunch.  Doesn't let smoke out, works actually quite well.  Is noisy, especially at low speeds.  (one sets one motor to full chat, then drives with the other one).  I don't think I have photos of it on the web, as I'm remiss on photos since Flickr went to 1000 maximum...

Out of curiosity why was the wheel arrangement changed from 4-8-4 to 4-4-4-4 ?

Because the central rods conflicted with the internal gearing. Something I jocularly cited when criticising DJ mechanisms and something which has caused concern on the part of some people when the original design of the GT3 gearing was made public.

 

To my mind, it’s simple. the coupling rods must be present so let them do the job of driving the coupled wheels. On DJ models, there had to be so much slop in the coupling rods to cope with the internal gearing that on four-coupled locomotives the rods thrashed about at odd angles. The problem was less evident on six-coupled locomotives but the rods needed to be in a single piece. That minimised the odd angles the rods assumed but limited flexibility. Sorry to burble on.

Leader - in a sense; but 36001 was the first of what was intended to be a class, and was not the only one on the (abhorted) production line.

Why doesnt one of the grammer/speling critics offer to help the manufacturer's with a accurate advertisement?

Already done. The advert in Model Rail is correct as regards grammar and spelling.

As a keen train-spotter, as we were then called, who had the privilege of being 'deafened' by this actual locomotive many times as it thrashed by on the MML I would agree that high level of volume  will be needed on the sound version. The locomotive was not a particular favourite of mine - thus I shall not be expressing any interest in the model.

I think the errors in Mick's post were intentional. As was you not noticing that “grammar” was also incorrect, no doubt. :wink_mini:

Already available in model form.

Yes

 

I wonder if KR have bought two Judith Edge Kits?  Or better still do they have nay drawings to work from?

 

They may realise then that  the 4-Do-4 has some differences body wise to the 4-4-4-4.

 

After seeing the attempt at gearing they made on GT3 this could be a real doozie.

The original works drawings are available from the (N)RM - I bought a set when I intended trying to correct a Dinosaur Diesels kit; (which was promptly sold-on when Judith Edge announced their kit).

Does that have the modifications on as well as I know it took Mike ages to get his head around some of the changes?

I don't think so - they are the originals as-built.

I went through all the drawings in the NRM collection and it still took a long time to piece everything together, one or two were missing as well. 10100 was modified in all sorts of ways more or less all through its life - and until it was painted green it's impossible to tell which side or end you are looking at in photos. Bizarrely BR put two LH crests on in the black livery but a LH and a RH one when it was painted green.

There is what looks like a GA in the old OPC collection at York but it doesn't have a single dimension on it, all the rest are various detail drawings. Judging by the rapidity of all the modifications I would say that it was fairly unlikely to have been built the same as first drawn.

Was the Fell actually single ended?

 

In the arrangement above it appears to only have seats for the driver and secondman at one end.

Different section heights on that plan.

The seats, diesels,etc have all been removed to show detail below them.

An incredible feat of engineering, marred only by being given a face that only a mother could love.

Your mother must love you more than mine does me. She would have given me up if I looked that bad!
