A note received by me from Hattons this evening:-

"Hello,

We have been made aware by Bachmann that a number of further details have been released about this item, viewable at http://www.ehattons.com/StockDetail.aspx?SID=86888 and you have an order for 1 of, on order id 3376867.

A price has now been confirmed for this model at £97.71, and confirmation of the running number is available as No.1054. Please be aware that no payment has been taken so far and this only takes place once the item has arrived into stock with us, as per all of our pre-orders.

Bachmann have also informed us that this will now be 18-Pin DCC Ready rather than 6-Pin as previously announced. If you have an order with us for DCC fitting, we will be in touch to arrange amendment of your order to a suitable 18-Pin decoder.

We have received no updates as regards to a release date however we understand that the Coal Tank model is now in tooling following the CAD design stage. For further updates on this and other forthcoming releases you can view our Project Updates page at http://www.ehattons.com/projectupdates

If you have any other queries regarding this item or any other matters, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Regards"

Looks like they have aimed at the collectors market first, basing the initial release on the condition/livery of the preserved one.

Interesting that 247 Developments introduced a whole raft of Cold Tank number plates in April 2015, presumably in anticipation of the release of the Bachmann model.

At the open meeting at Kidderminster on 31 July (see: http://www.lnwrs.org.uk/Events/KRM%20Open%20Meeting-Programme-2016.pdf), as well as bringing the usual items relevant to the Coal Tank, I'll also be bringing the 2nd prototype of the Bachmann Coal Tank.

This has been loaned specifically for me to bring to this event, and will be the only opportunity anyone will get to see it. If you wish to do so, come along to Kidderminster.

Just to advise that the modelling magazines have an excellent picture of the latest version of the 4mm scale coal tank model; sadly I was unable to et to see the model Pete was able to show. Better finish those K's kits soon; their value has presumably plummeted!

All the best

Saw it at Kidderminster and it is very nice but quite happy with K's ones. So anyone wanting to sell me one at a ridiculously low price is welcome. Will give separate donation to Pete.

Now that the LNWR version is on sale, ebay has two kits at reasonable prices, more to follow no doubt.
