Surely that is not by no means complete, no class 33s/schools for starters so the DCC only can be ignored me thinks.

best wishes

Just Double checked and that appears to be everything in N Gauge.

Gotta be something wrong. As Simon points out - no Schools, no class 33 and I see there are no Bulleid light pacifics listed.
If Dapol want to go fully DCC (and I don't think so) it will save me buying their stuff which, although slightly cheaper than Farish, isn't as good to my mind :D

Nothing in that lot for me - can concentrate on decisions about the Farish announced items.

Dapol's already planning outstanding N scale releases (assuming no further slippages), dates and status from their website:

class 33 (July 2016)
Panniers (April 2016)
A4 with valences (July 2016)
Battle of Britain/West Country (TBC)
class 142 (September 2016)
class 50 (4th quarter 2016)
class 59 (4th quarter 2016)
class 68 (3rd quarter 2016)
HIA hopper (in CAD/CAM development)
J72 (CAD/CAM development, TBC)
Maunsell 4-compt BTK, 6 compt BCK (2nd quarter 2016)
MJA (in CAD/CAM development)
Schools (June 2016)

and the following re-runs:

A3 (August 2016)
B sets (May 2016)
Grampus (May 2016)

Maybe the BoB/WC needs further development and/or allocation of tooling slots as they've haven't announced a release date.

That's a lot of planned releases for this year alone, not also forgetting their releases in the larger scales as well.

I note that it is only the class 68s that are listed as DCC only. The other locos are listed as DC and DCC.
I see nothing mentioned on the Dapol Collectors Club facebook page. Perhaps this list is an update / consolidation of already announced items.

J72 (CAD/CAM development, TBC)

J72 has been dropped, due to Farish duplication.

Cheers,
Alan

Hello,

I could do with a few refurbished Class 26's, its a long while since there was a run of these. Guess I will have to dig around for a second hand one. Shame as they cover a popular period in early sectorisation.

I don't see the point of DCC fitting all locomotives - after all if you want to fit sound the DCC chip is superfluous, so there may be more than a few people disappointed with this.

Regards,
Paul

The Dapol website is less accurate than me playing darts and that is saying something. The J72 inclusion is just one example of that along with lots of previous examples the 0-6-0 M7.
 
If I recall the BoB/WC were due in 2012? I think it has been awaiting tooling for nearly a year now, and for what should be a flagship loco to show the way forward it doesn't seem to be progressing. But the Schools announced a long time after is almost out. Yes a change of approach but why not use this for the schools as well??

ok the 142 may have been a little longer wasn't that 2008 announcement?

I am now of the opinion for all Dapol models that I'll believe they are happening when I have them running on my layout.

Lets not even talk about the missing signals?

So in other words don't get excited about anything proposed or not proposed or indicated it may be on a list until you actually have it. Based on changing prices and delays it may not even be worth saving.

I now have a list of announced locos and rolling stock I'd like for my layout and I am not buying any others until then, it's my very small protest vote, but it may also see me doing some modelling. That said I am waiting for a piece of infrastructure to be released before I can kick on with this as well.

Let's hope the 68 is as good as their 67 (detail-wise that is - I've had a few with the dreaded circuit-board problems).

Of all the listed / announced locos from Dapol, the only one I am interested in is the Class 59 and even that would require further investment in wagons (and RTR is a very limited selection?).

I have a passing interest in the 142, but I highly doubt one would make it around my inner loop without jumping off.

If the 59 does turn up "4th quarter 2016" (ducks for avoid flying pig), I may chance adding it to the Chrimbo list.

Dapol have said repeatedly that the BoB/WC will not go to tooling until they have got the mechanism right - and that mechanism had to work and keep on working.  Until they have reached one that when they test it to destruction it is deemed robust enough the loco will not progress.  Lack of any report on tooling commencing basically means they haven't yet got something robust enough.

We moan about quality.  Dapol are trying hard to get the quality very high on this new mechanism and we moan that it is taking time......

Personally If I were in the manufacturing business I'd have said "S*d it" and gone to make something easier years ago!

My point was also about inconsistency, why rush the schools with the old motor drive when you are trying to build a new super loco/motor which could benefit the schools as well.
