January 2017 Production

Post  Ian on Tue 24 Jan 2017, 4:22 pm

Hi all
Kits already despatched this month:
Foden 6" kit 28
Foden 6" kit 5
Burrell 2" kit 20
Showmans/Road Loco 4" Kit 21

Here is quick run-down on what I'm looking to produce in the next couple of weeks, Listed in likely despatch order.
Burrell 4" Roller Kit 7 (tender kit) probably on Thursday.
Showmans/Road Loco 4" Kit 28 (waiting some Brass and some Laser cuts for this)
Lykamobile Kit 2 (steering) (waiting some Laser cuts for this)
Burrell 4" Agricultural Kit 22B  (waiting some Brass and some Laser cuts for this)
Burrell SCC 4" Agricultural Kit 22B  (waiting some Brass and some Laser cuts for this)


The despatch order of kits will change dependant upon what materials or components arrive first.

I am unlikely to respond to questions in the vein of when is this kit going, if production is held up its generally in the hands of our suppliers and your guess is about as good as my own.

Why isn't my Kit on the list? Maybe its on the shelf already so I wont be producing it (Remaining Foden 4" are all available off the shelf), we are a small production team and can only concentrate on a hand full of different kits at any particular moment, so kits will disappear off the list and new ones appear.

I will try to post once a week with updates.
Regards Ian

Hi Ian

Any idea when kit 16B will be sent out for the 2" Burrell?
I received kit 20 last week, but as still waiting for 16B, there is very little I can do.
I understand there maybe problems with production but its very frustrating not being able to get on with my build.

That will be next months kit but probably without the flywheel due to casting delays, that at least will enable you to continue your build.

Thanks Ian for relying. That is good news.

Showmans/road loco Kit 28 ready today.
Next week should see Lyka Kit 2 ready to go, quickly followed by Kit 22b for both agricultural and single crank compound as these kits are progressing together.

No particularly good news on these items just yet, although we have approved local manufacture of the cylinder drain tap (to small and fiddly for our machines) and production is progressing.
The small components for the governor are also outside sourced and wont be here until near the end of Feb.
If things change I will shout about it in here.
