A super-detailed Advanced Passenger Train in the offing from DJ Models Ltd will be the longest OO-gauge set ever produced at 14 cars and 14ft 6in long – and the accompanying 3D CAD/CAM images capture the attention to detail that will even encompass the correct tartan pattern for the seats.

This will be a one-off model production, and DJ’s Dave Jones expects a finished six-car APT CAD/CAM by the end of March, followed by the tooling soon afterwards. 

The correct tilting shape of the APT on which so much hope was pinned is clearly evident in this 3D cad/cam image, along with precise cab, bogie and interior details.

Pre-orders are now being taken, and except for a few replacement models, the sets will be made strictly to order as a definite one-off production. The projected prices and details of other
DJ Models products can be found on the website. 


The APT will be only the second 100% crowdfunded OO-gauge mass-produced model train, and will give modellers the chance to get their hands on a really interesting piece of
railway history.
