The wait is nearly over… An ex­cit­ing pack­age ar­rived in the Model Rail of­fice dur­ing Septem­ber, con­tain­ing the re­main­ing eight dec­o­rated sam­ples of our ‘J70’ 0-6-0T. Here’s an ex­clu­sive taste of things to come. There are a few mi­nor tweaks for Rapido Trains to carry out be­fore pro­duc­tion can start. Please be pa­tient – they’re on their way! As we noted with the first two sam­ples that we re­ceived in July, the bell will be painted roof grey be­cause the fac­tory can­not paint the mount­ing frame sep­a­rately ow­ing to the del­i­cate na­ture of the com­po­nent. We felt it was bet­ter for you to choose your favourite ‘brass’ colour if you wanted to paint it, rather than try to match the shade of roof grey.
