We are delighted to report that the first engineering prototype (EP) of our 0 gauge RTR Class 14 0-6-0DH locomotive has been delivered for assessment. The project is running about 3 months late due to the Covid-19 situation.
We are pleased with the general appearance and detail of the EP. The cab interior is fully detailed and the model will be wired for the Plux22 DCC decoder. The EP weighs 1.15kgs and runs smoothly through Peco Setrack curves. Some minor changes will be required.
The photos exclude the push-fit headcode lenses, which will be supplied loose to enable owners to fit headcodes of their choice. The locos will be finished in the British Railways two-tone green livery and a sheet of Railtec decals will be supplied enabling all members of the class to be represented.
We hope to have the model available in the autumn of 2020, subject to the Covid-19 pandemic situation.
Prices are DC £290, DCC-fitted £345, DCC sound-fitted £415 and carriage is £9 per loco. Order forms are available on the Minerva website
