Hold on there Colin.... some of us have been speaking very nicely to Isobel to see what the arrangements are.... so I'm first!!!!! Very Happy

Looks like its gonna be a bit of a rush to see who gets a boiler and rolling chassis together first!!

Hopefully I will see you guys at STW towers on Thursday which is when I have managed to blag a day off to come up to you. Hopefully that allows enough time to get all the bits done that you need to for the kit. I will have a cheque by the way. Cool Cool

This sounds good news, I won't need mine for ages, as I am still building my 2nd rear wheel and I have not started the fronts yet. I heard the showmans new weight is just over a ton, has this changed with the boiler being finished? LONG LIVE THE SHOWMAN Razz Razz

Thought I had better come to the defence of the Showman builders.
While the beer glasses may be on our roofs at least we wont be wasting drinking time looking for the nearest hostelry. Sad

Passed inspection

Post  lynnr on Tue 15 Feb 2011, 8:26 am

Hi STW

So the first batch is a go! from the messages flying about the forum. There is a lot of hungry builders.

So to ask a slightly different question. When is batch 2 going to be ready as I am one of these late starters, although by my count I am now only 1 kit behind instead of 7 :-)....

Reason for asking is I am passing, well sort of, middle England at the start of July coming back from Dorset so it would be nice to be able to collect my boiler at that time. If it is ready well before then well I would most certainly do a round robin trip just to collect it as I guess a jiffy bag and a first class stamp will not do.

Or

Is delivery by courier still an option?

yeah, the vultures have been circling over the factory Shocked Wink

the next batch "should" be done within a month, but i say that with caution as we have the cylinders to machine and other "stuff" coming up.

if they are not done by July i expect someone will be getting the sack Laughing Laughing Laughing Wink

sorry, not a clue about the courier option, you'd have to speak to dean on that. Cool

I have got to respond it's a must..... Roadloco gang sounds to much like Chain Gang to me and you know what I mean....black and white strip engines coming up I think.

Also we all know women like a GOOD SHOWMAN...2-0 to us showman builders I think
Cool Very Happy

Hum. Would that then be a cut price likamobile for sale at 50% so it becomes a steam cycle?
