Thanks Scotty, I think I may have seen both of these before. Plenty of detail on the Inverurie photo.

Blue sky and semaphore signals in Stirling. Don't get either of those nowadays........

It might happen eventually but probably not in the near future. I doubt the economics of manufacturing one or the number of people interested in buying one will change for a while.
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

As I am modelling Gleneagles I still NEED Class 21/29 for passenger duties.

A few more photos here....  http://topticl.zenfolio.com/p89161544

I don't know how we draw more potential buyers in so we can get maybe even just one example produced. Preferably green!

Cheers  ::)

I sympathise - would have had one each of green 21 and 29 if they had made the parade..  The 21 being my preferred version if the only one. 
But things are as they are.  The only way I could "improve" on my Langley body running on a Farish 25/3 chassis is to renumber a Dapol 22.  Which is shorter than a 21 and no doubt many of the grills are in different places?  So may not be much of an improvement on what I have.

Hi all,

Thanks for that link Arrachogaidh, some great shots there.

These locos are so full of character it's a damn shame this one never made the cut.

Maybe we were too ambitious to start with a loco for the transition era modeller?

Maybe delivery of the Class B tankers will encourage more to consider crowdfunding and this project could be resurrected, though we would need to convince Dapol it's worth doing too.

Having said that, they do seem to be making progress on their 00 model, which I think is in tooling now.

Cheers

Ben A.

Impressed with the Mallaig Freight one as well as the varied stock being hauled through Gleneagles & Perth.

Cheers

I was in for four 21s during this campaign, arguably i'd be in for more than that if it were to be resurrected.
