    Hi, I'm member of the 125 group who have just issued their 40 year anniversary edition magazine (Issue 116 Autumn 2016). The Miller project is their big drive currently and I was expecting to see a big write up about this model, but looked through it twice, and could not see a mention at all. I wonder how widely the intimation of the project has been circulated.
    It was featured in a previous magazine when the model was announced - so probably nothing else to report yet.

    I am not sure if there was supposed to be feedback from the expression of interest forms - I emailed mine but received no confirmation... Tony

    I don't see why the APT-P would be less popular than the APT-E - there were, after all, more APT-Ps and they ran in passenger service. Rapido hasn't really proved anything - OO gauge is much more popular than N so just because something is financially viable in OO doesn't mean that it would be in N. Plus obviously smaller production run = higher cost per unit.

    Hi Bob, The expressions of interest did not go that well and we were a bit underwhelmed by the response, however, we are keen to do the project and will probably go ahead in the next month or so. So watch this space for more news in the next few weeks.

    Hi Joel/Dapol

    How are you doing with expressions of interest?
    is this likely to be a goer?
    is there anything we can do e.g. on the other forums to drum up interest?

    Jeremiah - you might be right about the APT-P, but as Rapido have proved with the APT-E that is a very different kettle of fish and would cost nothing like £500 per set!

    Hi FWIW on Shapeways over the last few years a gent is slowly working on an APT - P with motor car and some vehicles printed for his own use and bogie on the way with the nose being a bit of s*d to make and get right, plus some external hassles has affected works but if patient I think one will make a showing. With Fox and others doing stripes it might prove possible to make a working model - it uses a class 90 or 91 if I recall correctly.
    I think Lottery win the only likely fund source as it will never wash its face as a commercial project despite all our best wishes!

    I'd agree with Dapol, I don't think an APT-E or APT-P would generate enough sales to break even. Unless you'd find a 1,000 people willing to pay £500+ a pop...

    There are better and more viable ways to get an APT-P or APT-E in N gauge though.

    I tried to follow the link from an old newsletter email to register my interest but the link didn't work so seriously want one but had to work out if I could afford it
