Project Update – 10th April 2013

PSM announces 12 Versions of the “C38”

After careful consideration, PSM have released a table for you to select your preferred locomotive. Whilst we have done our very best to cater for our customers wishes and requests, we are still maybe able to cater for your special request if you let us know immediately and we are also able to have Ajin agree to any variations. These variations would mainly be road numbers as structural engineering is not practical and very expensive. The build is one the most comprehensive and one of our most highly anticipated projects that Precision Scale Models has ever embarked upon. The decision to request a deposit from our customers is based on the fact that we are offering so many versions to choose from. Logistically, the project would be difficult to manage without firm orders from customers.
