project 42 update please

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

now that most of project 42 is done with only the weedsprayer and spoils to go which we assume cant be too far away now . Will IRM be doing other freight lines or concentrating on passenger stock next.  2020 has been an interesting year but i guess irm will make 2021 even better and without a lockdown hopefully

You will just have to wait and see! Don't forget the As too, a massive project!

We will be releasing the Spoil Wagons and the Weedsprayer as well as packs of unloaded flats, and the gigantic A class run and another large project before summers end and then something else too. 😀

Ah Fran don't you realise if you raised the bar as high as you four have, expectations simply rise with the tide,  and "please sir can I have some more" with little tolerance for anything less than the perfection we've become recently accustomed to. There may be some disappointed if the windscreen wipers on the A don't actually operate (when its raining indoors). :) :) Now looking forward to some pre-cravens era coaching stock done to IRM/AS supreme standards with working oil lamps and candles. Please never a yo-yo.

Looking forward to the Deltic and CL37 too. 👍

Cement Bogies/Pallet Wagons and beet wagons would be amazing. Those 3 would be amazing. They also say "THREE" is the magic number 😉

Past patterns suggest they like to choose a chassis that can be used in multiple incarnations, and stock that ran in uniform rakes so that folks might buy a rake of wagons rather than just a few of this and a few of that. Good business economics. The mk3 push pull sets would make sense for the 121s, or indeed the existing 201s. But standard little tension lock couplings won't work reliably for pushing six mk3 coaches. I'm sure all will be revealed in the fullness of time.

I'm still praying for lots of coaches that will run with the As and right up to the Mk2 coaches 🙃  🙃🙃🙃(that's myself and JHB and a few others looking at this from a different angle)
