Just paid HS for the Kyushu B version. Will have to wait for delivery/HMRC ransom.

 

The B version has the support straps for the side tanks.

 

Will Kato offer another variant of their C11 in 2019?

I doubt they will. As they already have their Kyoto store limited exclusives (just redresses, with zebra stripes and one with a white stripe), and Micro Ace/Tramway already do all the other ones.

When Kato first issued their new C11 the poster showed the variant with the tank supports but the model issued was the standard variant.. That’s why I expected they would issue a new version to compete with Tramway.

There are many variants within the C11 class and I was hoping Kato would follow their treatment of the C57, C62 and D51 types. 

 

Hopefully the the new issues from Tramway will be better than their first attempt but the photos on HS may prove otherwise.

Acoording to n gauge information, Tramway will introduce a C10. Two numbers offered. Will have the new mechanism fitted to latest batch of C11s.

What about merging all of these threads to one "Tramway - New Releases" or the "Other Brands - New Releases"?

 

I am also not familiar with Tramway. Is the reliability on par with tomix/kato? the details seem a bit more coarse than the mainstream models (at least on pictures), what do you think of the models?

Good idea, but not sure how to move the items?

Admin or mods can merge and rename threads.

 

The C10 is up on Hobby Search for reservation.

I merged the C10 and C11 thread into one general thread where all Tramway releases can be discussed. 😉

Thanks Densha.

Picked up C11 from Royal Mail. First impressions are that it is not as good as the Kato version. I don’t have the Tomis C11 325 to compare.

The Tramway one is driven on two of the three axles with additional pick ups on the rear bogie. Testing will have to wait until next week.

There are no instructions in the box as to how you dismantle the loco.

Photos of C10 and Imperial C11 on N Gauge information. 

Both need better QC and hopefully there will be opportunities to make changes.

The C10 has wobbly foot plates and poor fit of components while the C11 has too thick white and gold lining.

C10 now available at HS. Their photos appear better than the earlier ones. The body is a better fit at the rear.

 

Will have to wait for my one to be delivered. 

 

That’s my last pre order for 2018 and Q1 2019.

C10 arrived today from HS. Very impressed. Perhaps I have received a good one as the fit of the bunker and the area below appears better than the photos.

 

I will test it later this week.

Here are two photos of my Tramway C10. Hope to test the loco on Monday now.

I managed to set up a very basic test track. The C10 ran very well but the Kato C11 is in a different league. It is far quieter. A smooth runner.

My Tramway C11 is in third place of the three but is nowhere near as bad as the first batch. 

The C10 will be an industrial loco as C10 8 and act as my colliery loco. The C11 will be part of the C11 fleet on my JNR Kyushu project.

I got my C10 and C11s muddled. Sorry.
