19 Jan 2015: First CAD images - The NSWGR low-frame 32 Class in HO Scale
Visit the Ixion Blog to see more images and news of the first iteration of the HO Scale C32.
Directors of Ixion Model Railways are pleased to announce that their next model
will be the New South Wales Government Railways 32 Class 4-6-0 tender
locomotive in HO (1:87) scale. This model will represent the class in
it's original low-frame (P Class) configuration. This variation has only
previously been available ready-to-run in limited-run hand-built unpainted
brass, and that was in the last century!
These locomotives were the universal workhorses of the NSWGR, working suburban, mainline and branchline passenger, goods and mixed trains. One low-frame member of the class has been preserved - 3265, pictured here in its preserved maroon livery.
The engines displayed many variations in their lifetime. Our model will be paired with an ex-50 Class standard goods tender. Whilst the computer-generated 3D drawings are still being finalised, we have asked the factory to look at the options of including both saturated and superheated versions, with both angled and curved running plates. Liveries are expected to include lined green, service black and the preserved maroon. More information will be available on our blog (see link above) as we receive it from our factory. Delivery is anticipated sometime in the third or fourth quarter of 2015.
Ixion is also producing a second run of the 7mm Hudswell Clarke in a new forest green livery. This is an artist's impression.
Ixion is also cooperating with a new UK manufacturer on the production of a new 7mm scale industrial tank locomotive. More news will be posted on our blog as it comes to hand.
