    The Brass etches for the 26 and 27 were given the go ahead and there fate is now with the etchers. I am still muddling my way through the various master castings as kindly produced by his nibs and arranging mould plans for submission of plans and masters to the white metal chap. Still a bit of work to do here as I have one or two remaining masters to be picked up in Dundee on my way down the road on Friday.

    Hopefully I'll get the first comments / response from the white metal caster within the next couple of weeks.

    One or two smaller tasks still to do. ..... lost wax fittings, brass bushes and brass draw bar couplings to source.

    The instructions are currently starting to be looked at and the parts indices rewritten and separated out from the instructions to be provided as supplementary reference to be read in conjunction with the instructions. Slow but steady. Meanwhile we start to progress onto the revisit of the Class 24 and 25.

    More as it happens.

    They have been completely shelved for the time being. I still own the copyright to 8 different loco types and they are all at differing levels of redevelopment.

    I will announce progress as things happen.

    But for now ........ there will be no imminent releases on the horizon.

    Very exciting times. Despite the hard work, there is nothing like running your own business. Somehow makes me wish I was in O Scale.

    Good luck.

    Kind regards
