On June 4th 2012 Sir Nigel Gresley was at York Railfest, painted in BR 1950 blue with early crest, numbered 60007.

I assume she's not been repainted since........

Interesting, thanks. I'm assuming that 'LNER Blue' is the blue livery she's currently in (preserved)? All the different blues get rather confusing. I thought it she was in Express Blue but clearly not.

She is currently in BR Express Blue. The livery of this model is as it ran from 1966 until the 1990's, the preserved part of the title is referring to the fact it has the double chimney (fitted 1957) which would be incorrect for this model on a LNER era layout.

From Ollie- "the preserved part of the title is referring to the fact it has the double chimney (fitted 1957) which would be incorrect for this model on a LNER era layout."

Also to the fact that she was renumbered from 4498 to 7 in Jan 1947 while still in wartime black, so never ran as 4498 in blue without valances- the valances wre removed at the time (Jan 1942) when she was repainted from prewar blue into wartime black.

Swapping the chimney for a single one wouldn't give an actual variant without renumbering and renaming the loco.

All the very best
Les

Hi

R.E. Dapol A4 Silver Link.

My account was debited the money on 27th August 2012 but no loco has arrived yet. Only ordered it in March!!! It is a Dapol N'thusiast's Club item. Held up by livery problems I think. I hope mine is a decent runner when it comes - with good pick-up and a cool running motor but I do not have high hopes based on my recent A3 experience. That stopped running and awaits replacement by Dapol after being condemned by DCC Supplies.

Has anyone got their Silver Link yet?

Cheers

Mac    :hmmm:

Nope; like you, still waiting (I ordered mine in January !!!) ...  I too hope it's a decent runner, but as DCC Supplies are reasonably close to me I don't mind popping over & seeing Fiona if it has problems (not had a chance to call in this year so far - must make the time !  Preferably without needing to !!!  :smiley-laughing:).

A little tempted on that Mallard - but as I've never touched Dapol before, I'm not going to jump in too far yet !

In regards to the two above posts, if dapol realize that there is a problem for running new A4's surely they would take the time to fix the problem before the silver link release, another possible reason for its delay?
OK who took my cake?

You would think they'd do that regardless ... but that appears (from reading here & elsewhere) not to be part of their SOP ...  :veryangry:

Dapol have an announcement on their web page that the Silver Links are in the Country and they expect to get them this week and send them out soon.

Cheers
