hi all i do agree with dr deltic the workforce are a great bunch, i have been at every open day since their n club started. but they are a small company which i think are trying to do to much to quick, they started back with n gauge, got there oo on the go again(better for us in n as more money for developement) and are now doing o. how do they do it? only so many hours in a week/year. on top of all that there seems to be an image/rebranding happening must be hard to keep all that running smooth me thinks :P

Yes totally agree with Dr Deltic, it's just frustrating they continually announce release dates and then miss them - I'd rather they didn't commit when they're often so far out!

Perhaps they should just drop the catalogue and only announce when things are actually released, keep us guessing!

I am sure I read somewhere the pdf catalogue will not be available which I find very disappointing. That medium is easily 'updateable' (if there is such a word ???) whereas a hard copy is not.
On further contemplation, maybe that is the plot :evil:

I would prefer that they got consistent quality. I am now very reluctant to commit to buying any model before it is released and will wait until it actually appears and there is some experience of its performance. If I miss out so be it. Alternatively I would like reassurance that if it goes wrong it will be fixed at no cost. I am not sure how  a two year warranty helps if they have already sold out of the batch and are not able to replace a specific model. I am still wating for a fix to the original 9F bogie problem which I know exists but after several conversations with Dapol have been unable to get them to send to me in Canada. A SAE doesn't work from a foreign country.

I noticed Dapol have said on Facebook that collectors club members are getting a free copy of the catalogue sent out to them.

cheers

I think we all imagined Dapol to be this massive organisation and in truth they are not exactly a massive team.
Bachmann is in a different league resources wise and it shows admittedly.


While i agree with you that they are a small company, the problem is they keep on saying it will be released on XYZ, but alot of items are delayed. I just read that the Silver Link is now delayed. While they are most likely doing all they can to sort these issues, the down side iS that customers will get fed up of constanlty being disapointed with the delays.

I see Dave has now said "late May" for the catalogue on RMWeb. My money's on July, with none of the products actually appearing in 2012  :)

I still struggle a bit with how it went from "it'll be 2 weeks" to actually being a further 3 months away (at least), surely at 2 weeks they were sending them to the printers!? I guess I'd rather they focused on resurrecting the Pendolino and the 92!

A colleague spoke to Joel (Dapol's MD) yesterday and we have a confirmed date of the first week in June. They will also be priced at 2.50 :)

Well so long as they have downloadable versions. I hope it comes with a guarantee at that price though ;)

According to their FB page they will still be offering PDF versions available as free downloads.
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Is there any hint of a clue what may be outlined for production in the cat?

I know about the A3 kettles and class 26/27 rumors but has there been any speculation or early give away's yet?

I know they are doing another run of q1's as we have them for pre-order on the website. I also know of another loco they are doing a re-release run of (well I think so anyway!) but I'll leave that till the catalogue is announced

Hi All,

Whilst browsing through RMWeb, I happened to pass comment on the continual locking of threads pertaining to the future catalogue.  This resulted in another locked thread. I sent my protests to the Moderator in question but have had no reply.  It seems that any comment (just or unjust) is not permitted.

So, it only remains for me to return to this more reasonable group and reiterate my thoughts that Daves cryptic comment & teasing of products etc is unhelpful, thereby creating rumour & counter-productive speculation. More transparency for the reasons it is late would help, such as, waiting for pics or problems with typesetting or similar......would be appreciated more by me, and I suspect, others too....

Later,
Stu from EGDL
