2/8/17 Update on Progress with Dean Goods Model

Due to further quality improvements on the last samples we have received from the manufacturers there will be a delay in delivering to the UK.

The new estimated time of arrival will now be late summer.
We are aware this may cause you a lot of frustration, however we are working with the manufacturer to maintain high quality production. They will in turn keep us updated on the progress and date of release. The Dean Goods is going to be a great model and there is still time to pre-order your very own model. We will be in touch with everybody as soon as we have firm update on the delivery.

28/7/17 Update on Progress with Stirling Single Model

Two days ago, we received the stunning 2nd EP pre-production sample of our OO Gauge model of GNR Stirling Single No. 1, so we thought you would love to see some great images.
The latest sample (photographs above and below) has performed extremely well over some complex and demanding track-work and both forward and reverse running are excellent. There is more detailing still to be added (like the front bogie splashers) as we proceed to the next stage of livery sample. Production will start shortly after that. Delivery to the UK is estimated to be later this year.

We are working very closely with Rapido to achieve the highest possible quality production, for which they are renowned. They will in turn keep us updated on the progress and date of release. Our Stirling Single No. 1 is going to be a cracking model you will love to have in your collection – there is still time to pre-order your model on our website – locomotionmodels.com. Avoid disappointment and order early as demand is expected to be very high for our first delivery.

8/5/17 Update on Progress with Stirling Single Model

We can't be a lot more accurate at this stage on the release date, however we are still doing final tooling alterations and fine detail improvements with an approximate delivery to the UK in October 2017 (fingers crossed). However, some models have been delayed in the past, so hang in there! We are looking forward to this model just as much as you are.
