If it moves, salute it. If it doesn't move, paint it. (RN sailors basic skills course 1968)
The Ffestiniog had one (not that it was ever used), so I could just about justify one for my line, although I think I'll be after the 4 and 6 wheel coal wagons first...

It will need to be partially dismantled to paint various parts but I am looking forward to this opportunity to detail and weather this. The Porterhouse Models couplings, mentioned in an earlier topic in this section of the forum, are included with the model.
Glad you happy with the model and we look forward to seeing it painted! Gradually getting through the orders we have had for them. Had alot of interest!
Its filament 3d printed using a very fine nozzle. Takes a while but works very well.
Our garden railway has 3 ft 3 radiuses on the running line 2ft 6 on some of the points in the steaming bays. We have not seen any issues traversing that.
There is a video of the prototype being hauled around the layout at https://youtu.be/40xrNBIzM3A

Yesterday, at a local garden railway meeting, I saw this model in the flesh for the first time. On my return home an order was immediately placed! Porterhouse are Forum members so can be contacted by PM. I am aware of a waiting list for this model, so don't delay!
Yes your on the list. We have finished the 5 which were ordered at the Peterborough show a couple.of weeks back this week. The others are currently progressing with 10 being built simultaneously for current orders!
