It's in the catalogue, so I'm sure it will be available when it's ready.

What chance the Farish ones will have working lights and DCC socket?
We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland, UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.

A few days ago I'd have something along the lines of "the same chance as Wenger leaving Arsenal while he still has a heartbeat" but you know, miracles happen! So who knows!?

Id have thought it was quite likely, DVTs are light fitted after all, and the OO gauge ones are too.

There was a review of the OO one in Rail Express a month or two ago, and it stated that it has DCC circuitry incorporated into the main circuit board (which I assume means no plug-in decoder).

It therefore seems likely that they will do the same with the N-gauge one.

It does look good doesn't it?

The Blue/Grey one was there too, at the other end of the cabinet I think (sorry, I've not got a pic myself)

And now I can't find the pictures I saw, I've had a quick look thought the forum facebook page....but they might have been on the n gauge Groups.io.

I think there was a row of Blue/Grey mk2s that had the DBSO at the end.

The DBSO looked detailled essential if have a scottish theme or one anglia norwich if that livery is produced. The mk2f looked stunning
