We have imported a VERY short run of 10 x RTR K1 Garratt's in
7mm/ft O-scale narrow gauge. One, which was to a customer's
special order and is pre-reserved, is for 14mm gauge, while
the remaining nine are for 16.5mm gauge O-16.5. (same gauge as On30).
Five of the ten RTR K1s are spoken for - which means
five are for sale. These are never to be repeated imported
brass models. Here's your only chance to purchase a RTR K1 before
they're gone for good.
These RTR K1 models have been solder-assembled at the same China
factory who did our run of 65 x RTR NGG 16 Garratts a couple of years
ago. Like the NGG 16s, they are all-brass. The whitemetal
castings included in our K1 kit have been substituted with brass
investment castings. The models are supplied factory painted
in black livery with red end beams and counter-weights as shown in the
accompanying photos. As per some customer's requests, we are
currently arranging for fully lined WHR livery to
be professionally. Naturally this professional lining service is
available at extra cost. Some of the K1 models are currently
being lined and as soon as we receive them, we'll post photos of a
finished K1 in lined WHR livery.
Each 0-4-0 engine unit in these K1 models is powered by a top quality
Faulhaber 2020C coreless gearhead motor with an internal gear ratio of
49:1. The motor drives one axle in each engine unit via
GrandtLine 1:1 bevel gears. Power to the other axle is via the coupling
rods. As should be expected, performance is smooth and quiet down to a
Naturally we are able to quote for the supply and installation of
on-board DCC/sound. Our demo model is currently being fitted with a
ZIMO MX640 sound decoder which has correct compound steam sounds
downloaded onto it. Hopefully, this model will be available for
inspection at EXPO NARROW GAUGE at Swanley on Oct 30th, RAIL EXPO in
Paris on Nov. 12-14 or at the Warley Show at the Birmingham NEC on Nov.
Anyone seriously interested in obtaining one of these FIVE REMAINING
RTR K1 MODELS is advised to contact us, where we will be happy to

RTR Select-a-Kit 2-6-2T
The picture shows the first completed ready-to-run On30
2-6-2T hot off the China production line.
Price: US$220 plus shipping
RTR Select-a-Kit 0-6-0ST or 2-6-0ST
have commenced on the NEW RTR On30 Saddletank projects. The 0-6-0Ts
have started shipping - on a first come, first served basis - and
we now expect the 2-6-0Ts will follow straight on from these.
Because of the very limited quantities involved, we are still advising
clients to reserve the 0-6-0 and 2-6-0 models with US$50 to be sure of
obtaining one. We have been accepting reservations for a while on these
saddletankers and there are now few remaining. DO NOT MISS OUT!
these new pictures show, the models turned out really nice. We'd
say the finish was even superior to that of our earlier 2-6-2T project.
These new 0-6-0 and 2-6-0 Saddletanks are supplied with
both straight and woodburner stacks included. The stacks are
painted but un-fitted. You choose to install your favourite option.As
with our earlier RTR project, these models are again imported directly
into the US from China. We have good friends in Virginia who
handle final shipping to US clients on our behalf. Orders destined
outside the US will be subject to an appropriate shipping charge
and may be liable to applicable VAT and/or import duties.
are, once more, unbelievably cheap for an all brass, hand
built, factory painted, imported Far Eastern model. The 0-6-0ST is
US$260 and the 2-6-0ST will cost $275. Within the US there will be a
uniform $10 shipping/handling charge. Models destined overseas will be
shipped via airmail at cost.
We know for sure
that a lot of modellers procrastinated and missed out on our earlier
RTR On30 2-6-2T which has long-since sold out. It's not like we didn't
tell guys in our advertising that this would happen at the kind of
price they were offered at. Likely as not, same thing will happen with
these new little saddletankers. Want one? Take our advice and get on
the list to be sure.
RTR NGG16 Garratt
China factory are also working on the pilot models for the 2-6-2+2-6-2
NGG 16 Garratt loco. These magnificent models will be available for
16.5mm gauge (On30 and O-16.5) and will be supplied factory
painted. Power is via a pair of Swiss-made Faulhaber coreless
gearhead motors. Performance will, of course, be
exemplary. Very limited quantities are being manufactured
(as few as 35-50 units) so these will certainly be exclusive
models. We began accepting pre-reservations for these beauties a couple
of months ago and we will be delighted to add your name to the growing
list if you are serious about securing one of these incredible
pieces of motive power.
