I haven't received my catalogue yet! so apologies if this has already been mentioned! 

Couldn't sleep so had a look on Hornby's website wow love the new rebrand layout etc don't worry the 1997 logo is still in use ! finally  Finally a even bigger WOW on the at the above page on the APT-P Collection page!  hopefully this months engine shed will reveal more a first look at  what appears to be a decorated sample of Sets 370 003 and 370 004, the 5-car pack Yellow ends! ("wow I could cry I'm not ashamed to mention" that bit! it looks absolutely beautiful! the details the livery, the joins appear to have gone as Simon mentioned they will as we all knew anyway! the livery looks absolutely stunning! well all of it does well! I'll stop there haha)

It looks amazing. I totally regret not buying a 5-car set i.e. the one depicted in the post above.

 

NOTE: It isn't a painted EP sample, it is in fact a CGI rendered image using the CAD work as a basis and either the CAD software or Photoshop to apply the livery.

I think that maybe a render of the model with its livery rather than the actual thing. It looks a little too perfect and uniform.

It is a rendered image like most images on the Hornby website.

Yes looking at it again you can see it is an CGI rendered image the windows give that away amongst other things. It just goes to show how far advanced CGI has now come since around ten years ago.

I wouldn't worry the 7 car Set 370 001 and 370 00, will be just as stunning with the Intercity APT-P Livery and black window surrounds! Yes the 5 car set is very nice impartially as it comes with the "City of Derby" power car. I'm sure many other retailers will still have allocated stock of the 5 car set when all of the APT-P collection is released in July. Hornby have excelled themselves once again with the newly tooled super detailed APT-P!

Dont count your chickens!!! ... there's still plenty time for them to c*ck it up and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

 

I'll reserve judgement on whether they've excelled themselves once there's a painted sample to look at properly. Believe me, I want them to excel since I have a full APT set on pre-order, but while they've got Stevie Wonder picking paint colours (e.g. HSTs in Intercity Swallow livery with dodgy greys that look green or sector Class 56s and 60s or very dark blues on BR Blue-Grey Mk1 RBs) I just cant trust that what gets produced will match the artwork.

Yes there is as we should always, "expect the unexpected and unexpect the expected!"

It's not Stevie's fault, Bachmann nip into the paint shop of an evening and mix up all his pots.

 

For once in his life, he would like it acknowledged it is not his fault what goes into the master blaster spray gun, he's never been forgiven for when the ebony and ivory paints got mixed up. Lately, he's had a lot of paint jobs at his fingertips to deal with and it knocks me off my feet how much he does in a week.  But he doesn't moan, he keeps to the higher ground and I have faith he will deliver a good paint job on the APT

Seems a good idea to me. The IETs are reported to be a little less than wonderful. Get Mr. Tilt to sort out the last few glitches and the UK will ride the rails again!

At least it would be a nice short journey time.........

The East West Rail video with the APT-ish CGI Train is still on YouTube here -

 

 

 

I wonder if the creator of that presentation was being deliberately naughty. Not much chance of an APT, I would have thought, but going by the criticism of a lot of new trains, might there be an argument for reverting to Mk. III coaches or Mk. III-based MUs?

Not a chance of it ever running again, believe me i know. Way to much in restoration costs, logistics, running costs, storage and the best one...we don't want it too ( Crewe heritage trust etc ) lol

Pre-orders have also been maxed out to retailers for a couple of months now, so it's now a case of "what retailers have is all they're going to get". Judging by the sales so far (especially on the 7-car set) this model is looking to be a pre-sell out, so to avoid disappointment I'd recommend contacting your local model shop early if you'd really like to get your hands on a model! :smile_mini:
