Hi Kristopher,
I agree, that is a big surprise! Reading through some of the comments in a dedicated thread elsewhere, you could be forgiven for thinking that KR Models were a band of villains who only produced “vapourware”!
I am pleased for them, not something I really wanted, despite father in law helping to build the real thing. Hopefully, this will encourage them to keep going.
The S&DJR 0-4-4T was a mighty pull back towards 00 for me, I must admit but I resisted!

I'd rather like an SDJR 0-4-4 tank as I already have a Jinty and a 2P in SDJR livery so a Johnson tank would be rather nice. Getting hold of one is the problem
