Looking forward to the NSE 50, although I hope in time they also release the mark 2 NSE 50 as well  :Dapol:

Im sure they will produce a 'Revised' NSE 50 eventually but i think with all there products they like to see how the 1st initial batch sells first. I would love to see a few more later liverys for example 50007 GW 150, 50008 BR Blue with white roof (The Laira job) 50015 Dutch, 50149 Railfreight General. Model rail may even commission Dapol to produce D400 as there N gauge Ltd Edt for all the railtour nuts !! :P 

After see'ing the list yesterday of the new locos i am certainly a happy boy :thumbsup: Once again, well done Dapol.

Cheers, Anthony

These were on my list for the N gauge forum survey.I never would have thought that Dapol would've stole Farish's thunder though by producing a hoover.Although I model the East Coast Mainline,a lot of class 50's were refurbished at Doncaster so once completed they were run about locally before running back down to the western region.
So that is my justification for pre ordering one in BR blue unrefurbished and refurbished large logo BR blue.
My wallet is going to take some hammer I think.

Hi Steve, no wind up. They have announced it in their catalog which hit the shops mid week this week.

They are looking to produce NSE livery, blue and large logo blue. Something for you to look forward to. :thumbsup:

Mine too :-\ the only good news is you should have time to save as being a new model probably won't be out till next year.

Dapol are hoping to have a preproduction sample on their stand at Warley 2012 along with the class 59. That means any forum member better go armed with a camera because we need pictures! :smiley-laughing:

Cheers

Very excited by the news of a Hoover from Dapol as I model the West Country in the early 70’s. I will certainly be pre-ordering an unrefurbished one (or two), but hope the wait is not as long as it has been for the Dapol Western because it has been ages since that was announced. I don't have a Farish version of the Hoover, having been put off by comments on this forum about the poor cab shape and overall lack of detail (to say nothing about the challenge of fitting DCC to that old Grafar split frame chassis).

The only twist in the tail is that I have a 50 on order from CJM, which has set me back a buck or two believe me. It is in the post on its way to me in the US as I type this. I am sure I will be delighted, but it will be interesting to see how the Dapol version stacks up when it is released...

Think you will be chuffed to bits with CJM 50 till RTR Dapol hits the shelves with working lights, comparable (well actually sorry no, possibly better) running.

I base this on having purchased a number of expensive loco's bought over the years but nothing prepared me for my Dapol 58's performance and that is now my benchmark for running comparisons.
