 :hellosign: Madchadbrad, I got my wagon from Llangollen Station, I doubt Dapol would stock them. Oddly enough when I bought mine I thought it was the last one on the shelf, But the lady had a stack of them below the counter.

That sounds promising!
I am unlikely to be able to get to Llangollen Station myself from where I live at the moment (France, near Geneva).
I will investigate their website ....

It appears these commemorative GPVs are available at £13.50 plus p&p from the shop on Llangollen Station .... commissioned by the Llangollen Railway from Dapol in 2017.
They can be contacted via their website.

I have just spoken to a very nice lady called Nicky at Llangollen Station and ordered a couple of these wagons. Apparently there has been some interest in the wagons over the last few days - I wonder why  ???, however, there are quite a few left, so if anybody wants one ..........

Excerpt from email sent to me by Nicky -
"We can certainly supply you with two wagons. The cost per wagon is £13.50 and P&P within the UK is 1st Class £4.00 and 2nd Class £3.25. For postage to Ireland the cost is £5.00. The wagons were not produced as a commemorative item for a particular event.

If you wish to make a purchase please telephone me Monday to Friday on 01978 860979 with a debit/credit card payment (closed for lunch 1pm - 1:30pm)."

Yeah, previously announced private owner wagons have still not appeared, so I wonít hold my breath for these new announcements!
Especially as they are getting close to £20 a pop these days, I would be happier if they didnít all get released at once!
Meanwhile PECO are running out of numbering slots in their NR-P900 series of commissioned wagons .... I wonder what they will do next!
Also it is about time Dapol put a little more effort into N-gauge .... lets have a new early era wagon profile .... scaled down from the OO range?

I see this wagon went for £18.77p plus postage! It beats me why people do not do a bit of research before bidding, the buyer could have saved himself more than a fiver!  ???

Yes, shame the Llangollen Railway GPV fetched a premium price on ebay Ö they could have had one from the source for under that price INCLUDING P&P!
However, I'm glad it cropped up as it unearthed an otherwise unknown (to me) Ltd Ed.
