The Dapol advert in British Railway Modelling confirms two brake thirds and a compo

Apologies if this has been raised elsewhere but,

I have considered pre-ordering the three coach Maunsell pack for set 392 in BR Green 2P-012-551 from Hattons. However their description states Set 392 comprising Brake third, Compartment Third and Compartment Third. According to the SEMG website set 392 comprised four compartment brake thirds 3218, 3219 and composite 5141. (Note wording for the Olive and Crimson/Cream versions are similar).

I seem to remember that Dapol were going to produce an "authentic" set so I assume the Hatton's descriptions are in error? Before I go ahead and order it would be nice to know what exactly set 392 comprises.

Martin

Bearing in mind all the discussion on set formations and compositions on the Dapol forum, I would say that Hattons have dropped one in their descriptions. I wouldn't think that Dapol would shoot themselves in the foot by not producing the boxed sets that they have committed themselves to on their own Forum...

Dapol Collectors Club magazine has pictures of the painted EPs (sans bogies) and gives an 'expected date' of end of Q1 2018.

My inspiration - never let a setback get you down...

No doubt they are talking calendar years - the coaches appear in Dapol's January releases ad which would be consistent with a Jan-Mar appearance.
