The pre-orders are still 53 for the standard models and 57 for the weathered ones. I have not heard anything about them being redesigned. I am pretty certain this is just Dapol keeping the funds ticking over with reruns of older locos.

Unless they're not prepared to wait why would anyone pay over 80 when they can pre-order at 57? ???
I can only assume they'd be concerned Dapol would not do another run :hmmm:

So this morning the M7 is back on Dapol's site.... Wonder if the hattons ones will drop as you can now buy an SR M7 NEW cheaper from Dapol than used hattons (a rare occurance!)

Ah yes, they are selling NEW M7s at 53 (or thereabouts), but if you really want you can have a secondhand one with missing box sleeve for a mere 84, or 85 if you really must have that sleeve...

Did I dream it or are these being reissued?  I've always had a soft spot for the M7 - a weird kind of design.  I think I first came across it in the Triang catalogue back when I was a lad.

Not that I have heard, would be interesting especially if they updated it so it ran better. Sorry getting a little too hopeful there. Back to reality - IIRC last time they did a re-release it was something to do with having loads of bits etc, although several years later that original runs, they were identical with no updates, the reason I did not get one.

Although visually they are superb, I never managed to get one that ran properly - 0-100 MPH!

Best wishes

It's 'in the pipeline' with a new DCC ready chassis, but will be a couple of years yet, once they've worked through the rest of the backlog.

Thankfully I have seven of them of which 4 are new (mint) and 3 are donors. But if they came available again I would buy more!

But then they'd be M8, M9 etc. :confused2:
