The N7 announced last year is very close to release and Oxford had an advanced EP on the stand to have a look at. As such it has some issues eg the coupling rods have been put on upside down (Oxford are aware), but on the whole it looks very promising. The weight of the loco is striking, most of the superstructure being cast metal, so I think there’s unlikely to be many traction issues. The rear pony truck appears rigid, the wheelset having a good amount of lateral movement and a small amount of vertical movement. Decorated samples are due very soon, and the detail on the EP looked a good cross section of quality and finesse. It was certainly standing up well to be handled frequently at the show.
