At a recent meeting of the ACE production trio the following decision was made. (Jan.28th 2015)
The Britannia tooling where production has now ended will be amended to enable the last passenger locomotive built in the UK (namely the 3 cylinder) 8P 'Duke of Gloucester'. This model which will not be issued until 2016 will be stored as castings before the tool is irretrievably amended to form the 9F which will obviously precede the 8P in production. This might cause a small delay while the Duke amendments are carried out. However removing metal mainly to amend the front end treatment it will be relatively speedy before amending it further for the 9F with its shorter boiler and narrower smoke box.
The 8P will incorporate Caprotti valve gear and run with the high sided 'Scottish tender as supplied with Scottish Britannias. Various amendments will be made to the internal detail of this tender.
As the decision to go ahead with this medium term project after the outstanding 2015 programme anybody interested can express a without obligation interest at any time in order for us to gauge a broad view of interest. The production run will be considerably less that the 7MT and the price will be announced towards the end of the year.
