Just received an email from Footplate/Flangeway saying they are now in production.

 

:)

 

 

 

Hi all,

 

Yes. Indeed they are at last! 

 

Sorry for the lack of news but we’ve had to sample the ploughs 3 times which seriously hindered progress. 

 

They are now in production and will be with us in December in time for Christmas! 

 

Tooling changes are ongoing for the Salmon wagon and an update will follow on this in the coming weeks.

 

all the best, Rich

Are we still on for a Christmas delivery or is it looking more likely to be the New Year.

We can confirm that Snowploughs are now finally in stock and we will shortly be dispatching them.

 

Unforeseen delays unfortunately hindered progress, however we are now able to ‘plough’ on to ensure that everyone’s model railways are prepared for the forthcoming snow...

A pair of network rail ploughs turned up this morning..... Nice looking model, might have to get a bit of painting done though, the white outlines around the 6 climbing holes??? on the production model have gone. and I want to add the black and yellow markings at the front on the bottom.

I received my pair yesterday with the morning post...well worth the wait! They capture the look of these unusual pieces of kit very well. Like Mick, I’ve got a few improvements and additions earmarked for my NR pair, to create an ex-works pair as they are when they leave Derby RTC after overhaul.

 

A nice touch was the little note inside from the owner to say sorry for the delay. It’s not often you get an acknowledgement like that, and whilst the delay didn’t affect me in the slightest it was a nice touch for those who expected the models before Christmas. Even Father C has to deal with production delays and communications with the East nowadays! :no:

 

Great work from Flangeway/Footplate for producing another run of these unique models.

 

Jack.

I've got a pair already and love them. The 'Ayr' plough as I was based there and an Eastfield one to keep it company. Great little models.

What numbers did those two carry and are they pre scotty dog era?

Hi All,

Went to the Folkestone show yesterday & picked up Snow King & Snow Queen ‘pimped up’ in Railfreight General livery.

These are excellent model’s & will look even better with some light weathering below the sole bar.

The real snow ploughs in this livery were based at Tinsley, Sheffield in the late 1980’s/early 1990’s therefore these models will make a great addition to my fleet.
