    A newspaper full of plans in different scales. We know not everyone will want to make one of our kits, especially as you may have one from another manufacturer in the cupboard. Accurate plans are golden though. One of the things which come out of the laser scanning is a really accurate set of plans. We're going to make them available in a newspaper, printed by our friends at Newspaper Club, where each engine gets four pages, with plans in 4mm, 7mm and 16mm scale. Oh, and did we mention, there'll be a credit for you on the project page.

    Something very special, totally unique and tailored just for you. You choose the scale, between 4mm and 16mm scale, and which of the four engines you'd like, and we will build the locomotive for you and have it professionally lined. To make it extra special we will custom produce a driver figure of you. Yes, that's right, we'll scan you (it doesn't hurt, it's like having a lot of photographs taken all at once) wearing a driver's uniform and then print a figure of you to go on the footplate. Since we'll need to scan you this is available to people in the UK only. There may be some travel involved for you to get to the nearest place where we can scan you, but we'll work all that out closer to the time.
