So You've Succumbed........ And Had To Buy.................?
« on: December 13, 2014, 10:23:35 AM »
Generally not being someone who buys weathered stock (I bought the new Farish green 37 from the Taiwanese eBay seller because it was unweathered), I've given in and bought the weathered green Class 22 and milk tankers monthly special available from Dapol.

I was just wondering what other members had bought when they'd finally given in, and had to buy?

Exactly the same as you. Couldn't resist at 120. No more pocket money till next Xmas!

The Dapol monthlies are certainly causing me some succumbage... Though the class 22 fails to light my personal fire of desire so have been able to resist that quite easily.

I also haunt various 1st 2nd hand retailers here in Tokyo and am unable to resist providing various items of British and European stock which surface from time to time with a good home. This is besides the primary "hit list" of Japanese items I would very much like to have, and the secondary list of items which I'd like to have at the right (discounted) price.

With my main layout being based in Oxfordshire there was no way I could justify a Blue Pullman (Rule 1 doesn't exist for me :no:) but when it came out I just had to have one.
Everything else I have can be justified :)

Still holding out on a BP tho' I expect my resolve to crumble with some christmas donations to the train fund.

Got blue Pullman. Haven't got my layout sorted yet so watch it going round my test loop endlessly with a glass of wine in one hand. Beats Coronation Street any day.

Despite mainly being interedted in 1960s Western region stuff working around Warwickshire I couldn't resist a Dapol B1 in LNER green.  Then I had to get some teak coaches to go with it...

I also had to have the Graham Farish 4CEP as I wanted a Southern Region EMU for years.

I wish I hadn't looked at this thread  - it's just cost me 120, couldn't resist the weathered class 22

Great to see so many people succumbing to a BP. By the way, they look like this  :D

Re: the Dapol special. It says it's a green 22, but the photo shows a blue one. Anyone know what's actually in the offer?

Its supposed to be green - I've ordered one on that basis. I believe there is another thread discussing this issue which came to the conclusion its green.

Thanks. I just e-mailed them. 2D-012-006 is supposedly the green 22 with white (~1930s) United Dairies tankers. But blue with silver tankers would be more useful to me. We shall see what they say!

Unfortunately the Blue version is still at full price of 179.95 if you order it from Dapol direct.
