IP Engineering Jessie re-release

Post by ge_rik » Thu Dec 07, 2023 8:56 am

I notice Ivan has released an upgraded version of his original Jessie loco

https://www.ipenginnering.com/product-p ... e-040-loco

Judging by the number of hits the page about Jessie gets on my blog, it still seems to be a popular loco. I had problems with the gearbox on my original loco but I notice the latest version has an upgraded gearbox and four wheel drive.

I'd be interested if anyone decides to treat themselves to a kit for Christmas.

I believe this iteration of Jessie was released a couple of years ago, and indeed I was tempted but managed to resist. Now if he were to re-release Jessica, my resolve might not be so strong...

Jessica is a lovely engine, I am lucky enough to have one of the originals and the gearbox still works, for now, lol.

I've always found the Jessie and the Jessica to be very nice-looking little diesels. In fact I think they are a more aesthetically consistent addition to a fleet of Roundhouse live steamers than Roundhouse's own diesels. Ivan got the look of this one right.

Having said that, as I am still operating on a circle of temporary track on my deck, I don't really need a diesel. Someday when I have a permanent railway, it might make more sense to have a diesel. I would definitely get an IP one. The price is very fair for such a nice-looking and mostly metal model.
