HELP NEEDED!
With the new Dapol locos announced the other and like most have the want list sorted but I would like some guidance re which loco  to get as coming fromAustralai I don't know what the difference is between a 33/0 and a 33/1.
I don't do prototype or any particular area, mainly just play trains but all of my existing stuff is br blue with the coaches blue/grey. Which loco is better?
Also on my list to get is class 22,33,27,50,52 and 56, can anyone suggest which model to get as again I'm not sure of the differences between class series, apart from the obvious that it will have to br blue.
Thanks in advance for any help

I don't know what the difference is between a 33/0 and a 33/1.

33/0 are the original standard locos.
33/1 are those modified for Push-Pull working with SR EMUs/Trailer sets.
33/2 are the 12 locos built with narrower bodies for the Hastings Line.

Wikipedia has an article for most classes, which is quite a good place to start reading up on the variants, when, where and what they were used for, etc.

Probably not as detailed as some railway-specific sites, but quite accessible.

Hi Bart,

If anything goes as long as the livery is correct, then the first 3 classes you list have 4 wheel bogies and the latter 3 have 6 wheel bogies so the choice is open for you. The class 22 and the class 52 are diesel hydraulics (preferred traction for the Western Region) as opposed to the rest being diesel electrics.
The class 52 Westerns hung around long after their scheduled withdrawal date until the class 50's were transferred from the West Coast Main Line following the electrification of the WCML

Thanks guys, will check out the wiki site. With the differences, does anyone one look better over the other. I wish there were photos for each of the model on the various shop sites

Sadly no one (AFAIK) has images of the new Dapol range, and to ask whether one looks better than the others will cause a flurry of replies dependent on who likes what. All I would say is that for sheer styling, the class 52 is different and people probably love it or hate it. Have a look at the Farish model and think 'better detailing' from Dapol. Then again, the Western Region was always that bit different which is probably why so many people model it. ;D

I have the Farish offering which I bought ages ago and it's green (and yellow and white ;))
Still runs a treat and looks fine with a rake of SR Green Mk1's

If the 33/1s sell well, I wonder what the chances are of the REP/TCs to go with them?  :angel:
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

I think it's unlikely Dapol would tool up for Mk1 bodyshells, specially as Dapol avoided the Mk2d/e/f coaching stock in their new catalogue, which I think would have sold by the bucketload and they are near the top of every wish list, plus the fact that the current Farish Mk1's are going to be hard to beat. I would have thought Farish may consider more EMU's, but that depends on how their 4-CIG and 350 sells. Although Dapol do have a bit of a thing for following a Hornbyesque line, so the question is will Dapol do the 4-VEP??? That could lead on to REP and TC sets but it depends a lot on sales of the Farish CIG and 350 and there is still no EMU available for the sectorisation period.
Maybe a 5-WES is in Dapol's sights, after all, they have a good Mk3 shell to work from plus their chassis from the 156 could be altered to fit... or am I just dreaming...  :worried: After all, Dapol did say they were keeping a couple of surprises up their sleeve... :drool:

Hi

I think you have your SR EMUs mixed up. Farish do a 4CEP not a 4CIG.
