Hi Everyone,

Please find the latest news on how production is coming along below.

Burrell 2" Kit 22:

This was despatched on Friday 9th October and should be with customers today, Monday 12th October.

Burrell 4" Kit 20:

This kit is now almost complete with only one item left to finish. Everything else is in packing being labelled and bagged. We hope to box everything up and despatch this kit on Wednesday 14th October.


The Foden Kits are now complete.

Foden Boilers:

A further 7 boilers have been completed with an additional 10 now in production. We expect these to be finished in the next 4 weeks. This will satisfy all customer requirements plus give us stock for the additional 7 boilers we require for the new orders of SWB/Artic versions.

Burrell 4" Boilers:

All customers requirements have now been met. As soon as the Foden boilers have been completed we intend to produce a batch of boilers for stock.

2" Burrell Kit 23:

This is the final kit for the 2" Burrell as Kit 24 was despatched previously. This kit contains the Injector, the Lubricator, any Pipes still due, the Whistle plus any items still outstanding. This will be our main focus once Kit 20 of the 4" Burrell has been despatched. We are have currently completed about half the items in the kit and hope to finish and despatch everything by the end of October.

Lykamobile Engine Improvements Parts:

These are all on the machines. We have around 20 orders for the new engine parts and will be looking to despatch them inline with Kit 23 of the 2" Burrell at the end of October.

2" Burrell Driving Wagon:

The materials have been ordered for a batch of 50 Driving Wagons with deliveries commencing January 2010. Letters were sent to all customers at the end of last week and already 6 customers have called and placed deposits.

4" Showman's/Road Loco:

The material has been ordered for Kit 1 and 2. We are planning to start manufacture in November with the first kit being delivered in December (just in time for Christmas). Kit 2 will then follow in January, kit 3 in February etc. The order book has now reached 24 which is fantastic. Once production commences we intend to increase the current price by around 5% for any new orders. So if you are sitting on the fence, get in quickly.

4.5" SWB/Artic Foden:

As the majority of these componants are now in stock we are intending to deliver as much is available in one go to any one who has placed an order for a SWB or Artic Foden. We estimate that we will be in the position to deliver 75% in one go with the balance following over the next 6-12 months rather than the usual 24 months. Any one wishing to have one over the normal period is still welcome but for those customers wanting a quicker lead time product this could be for you. We shall be looking to send out the main chassis, axles, wheels, boiler, cylinder block, motion and roof around January. A production schedule for the remainder of the parts will then be made available.

Finally, we have had our best two months since taking over with 15 new orders last month alone. Thank you everyone for the continued support and the show of confidence in us and our products.

All the best

Dean & Steve.
