Since the previous two SW6 topics were getting a little crowded, here's a brand new one, now that the plans have been approved! For those of you who want to view the old topics, all is not lost!

This first post in the topic will have updated snippets of main information picked from the discussion on the coming pages, and will be frequently updated by the team. If there is something that we manage to miss and feel it should be in here though, PM one of us and we'll consider adding it! To kick things off, here's a roundup of what we know so far.
Plans are available on the TT SW6 Mini Site
