PI Kerr, Stuart ‘Victory’ decorated samples arrive
Planet Industrials (PI) has taken delivery of decorated samples of its newly-tooled ‘OO’ gauge Kerr, Stuart ‘Victory’ 0-6-0T for assessment.
Four models of the all-new ‘Victory’ 0-6-0T are planned in plain black (Cat No. PI-001-A), lined grey as IW&D 12 (PI-001-B), lined green (PI-001-C) and lined maroon (PI-001-D).
As well as being Planet Industrials’ first ‘OO’ gauge ready-to-run locomotive, the specification also includes more than 200 individual components. It will feature a die-cast metal chassis, high-torque motor, flywheel, 40:1 gearbox, all-wheel pick-up, Next18 Digital Command Control (DCC) decoder socket, full cab interior detail, sprung buffers, NEM coupler pockets and optional details such as front steps and toolboxes.
Approval is expected shortly following a full assessment of the models’ running characteristics and appearance. The finish to the IW&D model will also be amended before production.
Pre-order prices are set at £115 DCC ready, £130 DCC fitted and £215 DCC sound-fitted. These remain valid until August 9 2021, when they will rise to £130/£175/£245 respectively.
