Minerva Model Railways - a new O Gauge manufacturer is launched and announces Peckett E Class

Recommended Posts

Numbers not going to be a problem. I have a few spare from the Hudswell Clarke! I also have an etch of brass NSWGR numbers which would work nicely.

For those who might be interested, I have just updated my webpage where I am collating information on the Peckett E Class:

I would be very grateful for more information, particularly if I may share it on this page.  Thanks.   David

Just been asked if the £30 billion trade deals with China being announced during the visit of the Chinese president to the UK involve Minerva.

 

I can safely say that at this time, we have no projects in mind that even come close to this figure................

So rumours of Minerva making the QJ class 2-10-2 in Gauge 0 are unfounded?

Sadly no. No matter hard we tried, we could not get it to negotiate Peco Setrack curves so its a non-starter. Sorry about that. .

Santa has come early. Have to say I'm really glad I went for the green one. The lining is bob on. Only had a few minutes so didn't even take it out of the box. The photo was taken on my phone and doesn't do it justice. But it looks fantastic. Even the box looks class. Delighted.

Hi gents,

 

Out of interest, what is the running quality like for these lovely, little locos?

 

Kind regards,

 

Nick

Excellent, I have a DCC sound version fitted by EDM which includes 'stay alive' capacitors to ensure smooth and reliable running at low speed. DC versions I have seen appear to run well at low speed straight out of the box.

Nick,

If you are able to attend the Reading show on Saturday 10th December 2016 you will be able to test run Pecketts (and the new ROD Victory 0-6-0T) on the Minerva stand. We will also be at Bristol on 22nd January 2017, Southampton 28th/29th January and Kettering 4th March.

 

Regards,

 

Chris

Hi all of you,

I've bought one but I lost the notice.

How can I open this engine to fit a DCC decoder, please?
