I was close, about 1.8M
Seeing as they have had samples of these since 2010 (ish) then surely its just a matter of booking time in with the factory and completing a run (ok not a simple as that but the tooling would be complete at least)
"Who wants more 422's in all liveries including modern repaints? and some ARG 22 Class to go with it? With optional ESU LokSound Select decoders fully functional on DC/DCC." - via facebook.
To convert metres to feet either divide by 0.3048 or multiply by 3.28 not 3.048. 3.28 is the reciprocal of 0.3048.
But as SA_Trains said just divide by 87 which is the ratio of full size to HO.
Very true David - difficulty is that one would be going forward with headlights on and the other decoder /loco going in reverse and have red marker lights on and headlights off. I may need to be in consist.One can program the lights not to be directional etc so not a problem. Trick is yu program one at a time, if needed. then operationally they run lie being one loco, which to the DCC sstem, they are.
Our shipment of XPTs arrive this weekend. So if you haven't yet placed your order you will need to do so before this weekend to secure it at the pre-delivery price. Also there are still a few people that haven't sent in their final payments. If we don't receive these by the end of next week we will be unable to post out your models until we return from holidays in November.
No, their FB post was to say they (Auscision) had no more SSR in their warehouse for on-line ordering. There's probably still plenty around in various Hobby shops such as Orient Express. I know Barnes (Newcastle) had several last week.
INSTALLING DCC DECODERS IN NEW XPTSDigitrains in the UK have sound fie for the HST Paxman 12VP185 prime mover usung a ESU LokSound V4 decoder it might be worth a look
Hi all, With the delivery of the XPTs just around the corner has anyone heard or planned how we'll fit/ program the 21 pin DCC decoders? Will it be one in each end and programmed with same number with opposite direction programmed? Prefer not to set up consist. Any hints at this stage?
Interesting that these two unannounced power cars are numbered XPT-17 and XPT-18.Well looks like I need to go to cash converters after all. Anyone know if they do trade-ins for limbs?
The previous models were XPT-1 to XPT-15 (you can see where this is going)...
SO, WHERE & WHAT IS XPT-16?????
Could there be an 'unannounced unannounced' Liverpool Show Only model?
I would imagine if the Olympics livery was done by Auscision the rights to use the Olympic markings would be extremely expensive.Olympics livery has a big legal issue to contend with, refer to the lOC Olympic Charter at http://www.olympic.org/Documents/olympic_charter_en.pdf, in particular:
But seeing there is a gap in their product coding I can't think of any other livery the XPT ran in.
Maybe it is a tuscan one
