Do you mean these ones?

http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/67400-dapol-n-gauge-schools-class/

Looking at them just makes me want the model more and I know it's not going to be here for a long, long time. I try consoling myself by prospectively looking at buying an existing steam locomotive but it just wouldn't be the same as having one of these little fellas running round the office...!

It does say 'first drafts' but followed by a slightly more encouraging 'We are aiming for release quarter 2 to quarter 3 2014'

I'll add that info to my pre-order log to make sure the N Gauge kitty is topped up in good time.

They'll probably be available in time for Halleys comet's next visit. once they've been sold there will be the usual tales

That'll be around 2061 then!  :doh:

I think my credit card and fire insurance may have expired by then but I'll try and stay positive.   :-\

I just got the same news in an email from Michael Pearce at Osbornes.



The release is due on Cheltenham's eightieth birthday. At least it's still on.

Yes, so did I.

I did acknowledge Micheal's email with thanks.

Nice to have a bit of follow-up.  :thumbsup:

Let's hope that service level continues.
