it does look good, no good for me though, I hope they either do a Western or class 14 soon! if you do get a deltic if has to be sound fitted with twin smoke units!
I'm back and now I model in 'Strain your eyes gauge'...

Not that difficult, just read the relevant Tower Models page:

Code: Select all

Payment

Unless an existing credit account is in operation, all orders to be exported from the U.K., must be paid for in advance. To allow us to correctly deduct V.A.T. and charge postage at cost, we prefer payment by credit card. We require the credit card holders' name, home address, card number and expiry date. In the case of trade customers using a credit card, we will ship the goods to their business address rather than their home address if preferred. However, to comply with credit card company rules, we must still have the address of the cardholder as well as delivery address. We accept the following credit cards: .

We DO NOT accept Diners Club or American Express.

If they do the Western I am going straight to O gauge :lol: but seriously I would buy it as they are of high standard and the detail is amazing.

Absolutely gorgeous, but to put one where it belongs i.e. at the head of an 11 coach express train would need a layout too big for 99% of modellers, the train alone would be about 24 feet long. Most will end up shunting back and forward in depot layouts which in my view is not my cup of tea I'm afraid.

This Signature Left Intentionally Blank, but since I have written this and I intended to do it, this Signature is intentionally not blank. Paradox or What?

I think that is why I would have to make a garden layout for this beast. I only really see shunting left to the smaller engines.

I am to believe next in line is a class 31 and a mention of a western on the horizon.

I don't think so, I think they've adjusted the paint to suit. All-in-all it looks good, but I wish they'd produced some with name and numbers already on. I know it gives us the chance to choose our own, but it also gives rise to making a very expensive mess if you get it wrong with the adhesive. :evil:

mention? at telford their stand was covered in photos of westerns and class 14s saying "this is at the top of your wishlist, we wish to produce it" and now on towers models site you can even see which westerns they will produce if enough orders come in.

6 years after starting this thread, I finally got me one. :D

Been waiting a long time for one to come up at the right price and today it did. Helped tremendously by selling off most of my OO collection, thanks to all who've bought so far :)
