Might put my name down for one of these.
30925 Cheltenham ran on a RCTS special "The East Midlander" from Nottingham to Darlington double headed with 2P 4-4-0 40646 on 13 May 1962 routed via Tadcaster, Wetherby (reverse) and Harrogate.
(source: Railway memories no. 24: Harrogate & Wetherby by Stephen Chapman, published by Bellcode Books, 2011)

It was allocated to Fratton from new until the Portsmouth electrification in 1937 so as I grew up in Portsmouth, a Schools loco will be added to my collection.
BTW both other preserved Schools locos 30926 Repton and 30928 Stowe were also allocated there when new.

By other colour do you mean Bulleid's horrible garish malachite (spelt with an S) probably one of the shortest lived liveries in terms of when it was applied, (apart from experimental BR) it came out in 1938, stopped in about '40 replaced by black and only crept in for a couple of years after WW2 before nationalistaion came along.

That's exactly the unmentionable colour I meant. It was also applied to one or two locos in 1948-49 when BR was testing liveries. There was at least one LMS loco that had it slapped on.

Likewise in both cases here but wonder what is happening as no news at all from Osborne's but perhaps that's because there's no news from Dapol. Nowt unusual there!

As far as im aware the schools should be out later this year around the same time as the maunsells. Its due out before the pacific's that are in the tooling room. That's according to the chap at ally pally. Also voted for the olive green.

Last time I checked with Hattons they came up with a blank - mine is still on preorder. At least my cash is still in the bank as a result. Dapol and Farish Delivery estimates are still hopeless!

Don't wanna worry you, but I first heard Dapol mention Maunsell coaches at least 10 years ago at an NGS AGM.

I doesn't worry me Mike it just annoys me intensely. Dapol and Farish don't seem to care that they get their customers enthusiastic about plans for new products which then just fall flat.

You should ask them on their facebook page as that does get answered.
