Dapol HST Livery Request Poll
« on: February 09, 2015, 02:48:15 PM »
Hi,

I'd like to try and work out if there is sufficient interest for Dapol to produce some alternative liveries for their HST Sets.

I'm sure the list I've produced won't tick all the boxes and I'll have more than probably missed something, but if that's the case please let me know and I'll try and amend the Poll accordingly for you to vote. I haven't included the Virgin XC Livery as the differences appear to be limited to the 'Virgin' logo's on the Power Cars and would probably be best achieved with a re-numbering exercise rather than a new production run.

Thanks, Mark.

One option not on there and I dont think is currently available is the First Dynamic lines livery.
However I am probably wrong on that one

Obviously the OP is an east coast mainline fan.  :(

How dare you!!! WCML all they way.

But I do like the current first livery has something with character about it instead of something drab like the east coast scheme.

Hi Acko22,

Like this one?

http://www.tauntontrains.co.uk/Archive-Images/43/43004-43009-03-04-06-1Z30-PAD-PENZ-CREECH.jpg

From the pic it looks like just the Power Cars that would need a livery change, the existing coach liveries look to be OK, unless I've missed something. I'll add it as an option.

Thanks, Mark.

Guilty as charged, I'm from the correct side of the Pennines after all  :D

Again, I'll add anything I've missed and you would like to vote for.

I would like to see a FGW "Fag Packet" livery,   :heart2:

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

or a Great Western "Merlin" livery,

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

IC Swallow is cool but that's already been done by Dapol.

Pretty sure a re-run of IC Swallow might be on the books from Dapol, but the poll was intended for liveries that hadn't been produced so far.
