Just to let everyone know that ModelOkits have launched a brass/white metal O scale kit of the AD60 Beyer Garratt. The kit is manufactured by DJH in the UK.

The pilot model has arrived and you can view it operating on the attached You Tube link

The kit arrives in late March/Early April and is $2599. We are still taking orders.

It is an amazing sight in O scale. It will be operating at the Aus7 O Scale exhibition at the Casula Powerhouse on 1/3/13
and running on Arakoola at the Canberra Exhibition late March.

Anyone wishing to order please go to our website http://www.modelokits.com and download an order form.

i have spoke too peter berg and its not made in India at all so i think your info is a bit wrong

They are ModelOkits photos in AMRM 2 weeks prior to completion of the pilot to make the publication cut off date. Hence why the boiler is not complete. The completed model can be seen on the You Tube at the link above.

Just to further update.

The DJH factory build options are not on offer anymore, please ignore what is on the order form. This will be updated.

We have a few local builder's who are offering to undertake building for people for $2750 on top of the price of the kit.

When is the order form on the website going to be updated.
  ModelOkits Station Staff

It is with my web designer and will be updated by the end of the week.

Only thing to change is the removal of factory builds and replaced with "contact us for details on local builders".

It should not stop anyone from ordering if they wish.

See our operational O gauge DJH factory built fully painted pilot model of the AD60 Garratt with DCC and sound fitted running on a demonstration layout at the Aus7 O scale modelers exhibition at the Casula Powerhouse on Saturday 1 march.

We are still taking orders for the AD60 and we have build options.

Kits are in production now and will leave DJH's UK factory at the end of March and will be available mid April.

Looking forward to seeing this beastly loco rumbling down some rails at the show Glenn.  Certainly an impressive since unit compared to my diminutive narrow gauge contraptions.  Found this interesting video the other day on YouTube for a bit of AD60 inspiration...

Thanks Dan, it is running beautifully and sound is great thanks to John Parker.

You have posted the video of ARHS 6029 first firing of the boiler.

We are donating a kit to the ARHS Canberra for them to raffle off and raise funds.

Please keep an eye out on the 6029 blog for when they start the raffle and buy a ticket to support them.

now that is a good thing to keep an eye out. Already have someone I'd ask who would love to build the model but cannot afford it - and it would come out very well indeed. Trouble is I'll have to enter, donate, then win, then convince him to build it. then I'd need something for it to do....

That's a pretty cool lend of support to that group Glenn.  A very appropriate item to have on offer.  Better prize than the old meat raffle Smile
