Hello All,
A note on the GNER Bookset, neither Dapol or Hattons were able to tell me if it has original headlights or the refurbished LED lights. I'me poised ready to pounce but have not pre-ordered the bookset until I see it!
Regards,
Philip

The photo here shows the new ones, given that was only a couple of weeks ago I'd assume that's what they've gone with.

It does in the picture from Ally Pally. The livery sample on the Dapol Digest doesn't

Yeah, just been looking at photos from a google search and in some light conditions they do seem to have a purple hue to them.

Here's a quick mobile phone snap from Ally Pally. The Virgin HST may be a bit further off, as the sample on display was a first draft designed to ensure the white "tick" is correctly located (a tricky task, I can say with some authority).

All the sets have the later headlights. Assuming Dapol are doing the GNER coaches with red doors that that will be totally fine. The new light clusters were first fitted in 2005, so perhaps not so appropriate for the first ten years of the franchise. I don't know if the earlier light clusters are available as spares or how easy they would be to fit.

Wouldn't fancy it myself, they're not separate AFAIK.  You could cut them out and re-glaze, but I wouldn't!

They are a separate part. The question has been asked by G_N_E_R on anther thread and I have posted exploded part diagrams.


The main body shell of the HST is the same. It is just the light lenses that are different(Parts 14A & 14B) . However the lighting circuit board for the original HST's has three SMD LED's and three plastic lighting channels ( Part 50, 51, 52 & 29B) and the post Valenta variant only has two (Part 27,28 & 29A)

 ??? It surprises me that Dapol get bashed.
 All my Dapol diesels are still running prefestly, but not one of the Grafar diesels run with the Grafar mechanisms.
 I repowered all the GF diesel bodies with Tomix chassis. It was either that, or scrap classes 37,47,57 08 .....
 Need I say more ?

Who's bashing Dapol?

If you mean Grafar as in Poole era then that's a bit of an apples/oranges comparison.

 I mean the Grafar products starting in 2006, when I changed from, HO American, to N gauge British.
  Does that help ? :ngauge:

Traditionally they're not known as Grafar, but BachFar, to differentiate from the UK made stuff which was wildly inferior.

In that case I'd ask what the hell you're doing to have so many broken Farish models. I'd also suggest it's wholly irrelevant to what Dapol have coming in the next couple of months and that no one here was bashing Dapol :)
