    Hopefully that might suggest pre-production samples at the SDMRC show, and if all went well perhaps retail deliveries some months after that.

    I can remember when that class 33 came out over here in CIE colours and I thought wow a Irish loco and so it wasn't till I had a proper look at it at home that I soon realised that it wasn't the real thing and so it soon got consigned to box 101 totally disgusted with myself then there was the Lima 201 which I didn't discover for bout 7 years after release such a stupid boy ! . Fair play to MIR for his efforts and what he achieved and now look at what we have but the 121 is a long time coming !
    Speaking to Dave Bracken a while ago about loco manufacture I was seriously thinking of going into Irish loco manufacture at my workshop here in Sussex but things are moving so fast what with 3D prototyping it rapidly became non viable and now we have mineral wagons and cement bubbles coming up which I eagerly await to order but my house move is slowing everything down for me but I'm hoping for a good year in 2017 god willing ! For my own layout but lots if work to be done !

    Well if you're game for it, an A class and maybe a J15 would sell well based on previous threads on here. If we don't see the 121 until end of 2017 (and that must be a provisional date, based on previous releases), I'm not entirely sure we'll ever see the A class let alone anything else

    I'm happy to bet that we will see an A Class Kevin. These things take time and resources.

    Well Dive I will have a look at things again after my house move as I do have an 'A' class prototype already cast and looks very good and any info on a j15 would help so I think that Dave B is right in his advice but it's just that things move so fast in prototyeping what with the advent of 3D printing and such !
