Hello from myself and the KMRC team! On behalf of James (can I really lay fault with him?!) I would like to apologise for the joke repeat... A newsletter subscriber, Mr Read with a much better memory than myself, was on the ball and noticed that last weeks joke had already been used a few months ago. To make up for it James has shared 2 jokes this week!

GWR Steam Railmotor / OO Gauge / UPDATE

Railmotor

We have received the first engineering prototypes of the GWR Steam Railmotor. These are being fully evaulated and tested. We have already identified a small number of minor issues to amend, initial running tests show that they run very quietly and smoothly and the valve gear is a joy to watch in action!

A bit about the models: They have electrical pick-ups on all wheels and they have full working valve gear, including the radius rod and piston valve stem. The 1020 coreless motor is positioned vertically, completely hidden inside the actual boiler of the power bogie. They have working directional oil lamps and interior lights. The models will be DCC ready with a 21-pin decoder socket and 28mm speaker pre-installed.

The livery artwork is underway, concurrent with testing these EPs, and we hope to see decorated samples by the autumn. We should then be in a position to start to arrange production.

The tooling allows for both the Diagram ‘O’ type and the Diagram ‘R’ type Steam Railmotors to be produced in five versions, as listed below. The diagram O type most obvious differences from the diagram ‘R’ are the larger boiler room windows, double leaf passenger doors and ‘Fishbelly’ rather than ‘Equalising’ bogies.

Click on the image below for a brief video to show the valve gear in action:

Things You Didn't Know You Didn't Know (or maybe you did?!)


Did you know... a glass ball (of the same size) bounces higher than a rubber ball! Sounds pretty dangerous to me!

James' first joke of the week... What kind of exercise do lazy people do? Diddly-squats!

James' second joke of the week... Why do all witches wear black? So you can't tell which witch is which!

Oll an gwella,

Hayley
