@DJM Dave
I was never going to order these as they are completely outside my modelled location but am prepared to make an exception. However, I'd like a green + SYP weathered twin pack (powered + dummy) and there doesn't seem to be such an option. If it's planned could you add it to your website pre order page and I'll do the necessary and pay. Thanks.

Interesting point but if you have been following Dapols recent comments that a dummy is only marginally less to produce than a powered one you might follow my lead by buying a powered model and strip out the motor for your spares box.  Over the last few years I have found myself using most of these salvaged motors swapped out with motors in poorer runners, and the supply modern locos spares wont last forever.

Nice idea but I don't pull things apart so have no spares box and wouldn't know what to do with one if I did. I'd also have to re-number the second one, again something I'm not capable of. Lastly, Dave's pricing is eminently reasonable for a dummy whereas Dapol pitch theirs way too high IMO.

Aye. But I can also purchase N17-005 powered green SYP weathered but there's no dummy to go with it. As a general rule I always prefer to buy the weathered version of a loco.

I'm very good at dismantling stuff. It's the putting it back together I find impossible :-[

I just had an email from Dave re fitting DCC and sound chips, and I quote:

"The sound decoder goes in the fuel tank, simply plug in, and a sugar cube speaker will go in the cab."  :thumbsup:

If you use a CT Electronic decoder you don't need a separate smoke unit  :goggleeyes:

 :thankyousign:

This is something is would also want if it was available. I have ordered the green twin pack and the weathered green loco on it's own, if the twin pack was also weathered that would be really good, no idea if this would be viable or not, only @DJM Dave can advise i guess. Given we have all given this a wee push over the line whats the chances Dave ?

That's unfortunate.  These little beasts had two different control systems depending on who built them.  8616 was Beyer Peacock built (blue star) and 8561 was Clayton (red diamond).  The only time they would have run together was when one had failed and was being dragged to works for attention by the other. (Which happened rather a lot with Class 17s.)
