seems farish while spreading out are having their old toolings put to shame by the competitor,,,,,,
I think it is fair to say that any old Farish tooling where a 00 equivelent is in the Hornby catalogue is fair game for Dapol. The existence of the Hornby model means Bachmann are unlikely to do a 00 model so an N gauge version is also unlikely.

I wonder if Bachmann knew about the Dapol Panniers and were trying to squeeze as much as possible out of their model by issuing them a few months back with the new chassis?
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Dapol Dave's going to be a busy boy. I wonder if he'll be getting any development help like an assistant. Otherwise it could be a long wait for some things to go through development, wait for a production slot and then the long sea voyage. And have they made a bit of a rod for their own backs? I guess they'll be bombarded with "what's the latest", "when's it due" and "what's happening about the xx" questions now.

But those doubts aside it's a great N gauge list, especially for me.  It looks like a decades worth of Christmasses have come at once. And no doubt it will be a popular list for many others.

I look forward to getting and reading a copy of the brochure. Anyone know where it will be on sale? Smiffs and other newsagents or just a few specialist Dapol listed model shops?

I think that model shops that carry Dapol will carry the catalogue. Hattons are selling it.

Very pleased with that list. It does look like a very good N gauge crop.

I am partcularly looking forward to 33, 50, sevaral Westerns and the O gauge 08.

Well done :Dapol:

First thing I did was ctrl-f and search for Pendolino and it does come up with something but I can't tell if they're producing a set or just dining coaches.

Edit: It must be! It's under train sets category. BOSS!

Edit2: This has made me well happy because I was tempted to try OO just to have this train but decided to do the sensible thing and bide my time.

Are you sure you're not looking at the "Pretendolino" Mk III coaches painted in Pendolino-style livery?

I was hoping they'd have got the 92 and/or the Pendolino back underway, hey ho, dare to dream!

I like the idea of a 59, but it's a shame they've not done some JHA or PTA hoppers to go with it.

Still, a good selection, just not much I'm fussed by!

Sorry Mr Grumpy, Dapol are unlikely to produce the Pendolino in the near future - it has been on their back burner since the dawn of time. The reason is likely to be costs, as each car is different, and also worries as to whether it will sell. Farish won't do one as they say Dapol are going to do one.

With proposals for running modified 140mph Pendolinos on the East Coast line, hopefully someone will produce one - all we can do is keep nudging the manufacturers, it was top of our N Gauge EMU poll results and I'd buy one (even though I have kept my OO Pendolino and an oval of Kato HO track)

Just one Pendolino, give it to me, a beautiful train, from Italy

In my subsequent google searches today I found the thread where you discussed this previously. It's a mystery to me why they're not more popular. I hope that the current EMUs on sale sell well so we get what we want.  I'd love to get a 3D printer and set up shop selling modern/futuristic supplies but I guess you have to have some strength to push new things like that on to the market. It's not like there is a great existing market in the UK. We all seem obsessed with steam and the countryside (which is fair enough, just not my cup of tea at all).

They are a fixed-rake mainline train that runs on one route in a single livery. Only useful if you are modelling the WCML post-2001. Even the Blue Pullmans covered a wider territory as well as getting around a bit on specials. I hope OHEL fans get a Pendolino and smoe other EMUs sooner rather than later but I can see why Dapol are cautious.

We all seem obsessed with steam and the countryside (which is fair enough, just not my cup of tea at all).
Very much horses for courses. If you are going to run long, fixed-rake stock with minimal shunting then N gauge is the obvious scale to choose. I tried modelling the WCML (sectorisation era) in 00 many years ago and that was a real challenge. There was less stock then than there is N gauge now. I can see the appeal of the prototype though.

Regarding 3D printing, I believe Captain Electra has some 313s in the pipeline so that will help at least if you are modelling south of Watford Junction. ;)
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Certainly fantastic news for me but not my savings :'(

I really have to wonder whether we have a spy in the camp as regards the poll results :o :smiley-laughing:

Its good to see some more Mk3s - but whilst there are more FGW coaches and buffet cars in most liveries, there is no FGW buffet car on the list. Still won't be able to run a complete FGW HST.

Dave Jones has said on RMweb that a couple of things have been overlooked with regards to the Press release.
