Likewise, pre-ordered Tonbridge from Hattons, this is getting very expensive  :)

Hmmm as School's class... As I've said about the Pannier tank is doesn't appeal to me as is but I'm now wondering if it is possible to use the chassis for something else much as Hornby did in the 80's...

They are pretty big wheels on a Schools, that said they are pretty simialr to the D15 except for the spaghetti ?



LNER wise  Improved Director perhaps  ? Or slightly undersize wheels but not excessively for a GCR D5

Could it be that EP is experiencing a frisson of excitement at the new Dapol releases? :o

I was thinking along the lines of a D49, that way the valve gear could be retained with some very minor modification... I did some CAD work for a D49 a few years ago, I think a dusting off and updating of that project is required...

Mostly in a "new things to take a razor saw to" realm 8)

Schools class locos never got out to Wadebridge nor rebuilt spamcans.

Is there a pre-order page on Hattons for the new stuff or is it over the phone only?

You can find them here:

http://www.ehattons.com/stocklist/1000396/1000589/1000640/0/Dapol_Model_Railways_N_Gauge_Steam_engines_locos/prodlist.aspx

Looks like Hattons realised they should be charging different prices for DCC READY and DCC FITTED loco's.

Cheers

The Schools is nice but in some ways a T9 might have been better.
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)
