I have just had a film studio contact me. They are making a TV documentary about the development of high speed trains in the UK and require a Hornby model of the APT. Hornby are lending them various bits and pieces but don't have any models themselves of the APT within Margate Towers. This is evidence that Hornby don't have the rumoured secret Indiana Jones type locked storeroom at Margate with mint examples within of every model ever produced by Rovex!


Would anybody out there who has a decent example of the Hornby APT be willing to loan their model to the TV studio?

This is your chance for fame if not fortune!

Happy modelling

QUOTE when do they need it by?

We'll see how the replies go and I'll contact the TV production company towards the end of the week.

The programme producer is aware of this request at Model Rail Forum and so may well be looking in anyway.

Therefore could you please all be on your best behaviour!


Happy modelling

QUOTE Personally, I can't understand the desire to have an APT model. What does it represent?

Hi all

Just to remind folks that the TV production company are looking to borrow a Hornby model of the APT to help them with the production of a story about the history of high speed rail travel in the UK.

Your thoughts and views about the APT may well be of interest to the producers so please continue however let us not forget the main point of this thread.

I did warn the company about missing pantagraphs on the vaste majority of these models still in service with APT enthusiasts and we have had one or two good offers so the TV production company might not have to cancel the project!


If anybody has any ideas about replacing the missing pantagraph then that could be a clincher!


Happy modelling
Gary
