    Hi all I've been I've been in touch with Dave Sharp at Modern Out Line kits about the possibility of doing a kit of the 15xx pannier tank. I've sent him drawings and he has actually measured up 1501 at the SVR.
    If you would like a kit of this loco then please register your interest with MOK on there web site,
    modernoutline.co.uk
    MOK only produce a limited number of kits now as with the 9F which is being done in a batch of 75.
    We have also been talking about a kit of the BR standard class 3 tank. Especially as the new build is taking shape at Bridgnorth
    It's such an imposing locomotive and very different from any thing else from the Swindon stable.

    Steve - I've been badgering Dave for some time about a 15xx and I believe he has a bit of a soft spot for them, so you never know. A BR Std 3 tank would be very nice too!


    Regards

    Dan

    Hi Dan
    Yes he does have a soft spot just as I do. Drop him a bell again and let him no, I think we can get something going.

    One of these would be nice too and if the 4MT tank is any thing to go by it would be a bit special. Just need a standard 4 75XXX to complete the line up

    I've just heard from Dave and he's putting a list together of all those who are interested in both the 15xx & BR std 3 tank
    So if you haven't already, contact Dave on DSharp@modernoutline.co.uk

    Steve,
    I need lots of Panniers for Aberbeeg but as far as I know the 15XX wasn't allocated to Aberbeeg. Do you know better? I need to do a couple of 94XX.

    No I don't think so but I'm surprised how far they got around, I to could do with some 94xx panniers although the spring side kit is a bit expensive for what it is. I'm on the case with JLTRT about that one.

    Here's one at work at Didcot.
    Newport did have a 15 as seen in the picture so I suppose it's not out of the question that it got up Aberbeeg. Other than that a little bit of modellers licence could be used

    Steve,
    it is a temptation, rule 1 applies - it's my trainset! Interesting challenge to get it to haul what the real loco could pull. I could definitely do a couple of 94Xx as bankers.

    Yes We Can. BR standard class 3 tank after that ;-)

    So if neither 1506 or 7 went east up to The Smoke, I can have an excuse run them on Aber when it is set in 1963.

    :)

    But both did go east by 1963 - except, perhaps, under Rule 1!

    Get your names down then DSharp@modernoutline.co.uk
    Once this one is in the bag il start the campaign for a new 94XX pannier. Oh and not forgetting the very appealing BR standard 3 tank
