A fairly significant development spotted on the G1MRA Yahoo group (members only so no link), Trevor Taylor has announced that his long suggested RTR Mk 1 coaches will be available in "February 2013". See the info yourself off the link from here. As far as I can tell from what's written there will initially be two types, brake second and second, and there is a pre delivery offer of four for £850.00. I really hope he gets these "right" as I want passenger trains and don't think I would ever manage to build one let alone three of Fred's masterpieces in my lifetime. Colourwise its everything except blue and grey to start with, green is what I'm after so I think I may take the bait. This all seems very sudden to me but Tag Gorton says that progress is apparently consistent with the projected dates, we'll see.... If Trevor manages to build in some flaw that "kills it" (I'm thinking of the Heljan O gauge un mk 1 ishness here) then I think he will have also scotched the prospects of anyone else doing it properly in the next 50 years or so. So a lot riding on what he does I think, has anyone here any more information or any links with the man himself? I wonder what information sources he is working from? If he gets it right* then I think he will do extremely well with them. Simon * "Right" means right shape, no impossibly deep window edges, missing details no problem.
