Yep, they do. You want the mk2F variant (keep an eye on eBay, they’re not current), nearly always listed just as mk2, you’ll have to filter out the mk2 A/B/C which aren’t appropriate - you need the air conditioned ones, rather than the ones that have individual opening windows.

Thanks guys for all the interesting advice.

I'll have to keep an eye out for the GF mk2 coaches.

I think I'll treat myself to a set of those ' by a strange co-incidence ' scotrail vinyls

Good news the 68s are soon to be with us

What's the view on an early sell out of the DRS and Scotrail versions just like 00

I did wait a little while for the class 40 and bought one at a better discount from Model Rail Direct

I suppose I can wait for a second run if I miss out

£118 is a bit steep

 :hmmm:

Seems to be the going rate for newly released N-gauge diesels at the moment.

Of course you might get them reduced after a few months, but as you say the DRS livery is highly likely to sell out fairly quickly.

ordered a DRS one from RoS, looks like we should get used to paying over £100 now for loco's given inflation especially in China.

Looks like they have arrived just in time for Model Rail Scotland.

I've got mine pre ordered from Mike at C and M models.

Hopefully pick it up on Saturday on route to Birmingham.

Evening all

It would appear 68002 has found it's way into my Rails basket and has somehow been paid for. Whoops!

Cheers

A bit modern for me but I really want one. The Hattons pics show the DRS livery is spot-on, with none of the livery issues that affected the first OO examples.  :beers: :thumbsup:

Hello all,

They are really lovely models.  I've reviewed them for the next issue of Model Rail - and in my view Dapol have really upped their game here.  Lots about this model to enjoy - and look out for the much improved presentation.

There never has been a better time to be an N gauge modeller IMO, especially if your focus is the present day.

cheers

Ben A.
