Can anyone confirm that these are happy enough on first radius curves please. I don't see why a short Bo-Bo wouldn't be, but I'd rather check first ;)

Sounds like the headcode wires are wrong way round then on one end

Didn’t want to start a new thread:

Has everybody seen the Dapol announment that more 33 liveries are coming?

DCC read £132.66
DCC fitted £158.25

“End Q3 2019”

Still can’t upload photos from my phone so:

https://www.dapol.co.uk/New-N-Gauge-Class-33-Models-Announced

(Ignore the photos, they are of existing models)

@Tank : 33/1 33114 “Ashford 150” in NSE....

Plus a tripple grey for the likes of me.

Oh dear I want three (NSE and 2x Tripple Grey as used in Chunnel construction trafic).

Wonderful!  It's been about 3 or 4 years since I sold my Farish model, and I do miss it.  Look forward to seeing the Dapol.  :)

A merchant in Sheffield took some money from my Paypal last week, completely forgetting, I pre-ordered one of these new batch of loco's when they were announced last year. So a D6561 in Green/Full Yellow end came through the post today:



Finish and detail as good as the original run batch to my eyes, and they have always been reliable solid runners so expecting that to continue. The only change I've noticed from the first run of loco's is that the switch to turn off the tail lamps is now located inside the body on top of the chassis near where the DCC chip goes, rather located on the underside of the fuel tank as per the first batch. Being a DC user, I've never had to remove the shell body before so a minor annoyance but not a real problem.

In real life 33043. Could remember her as D6515 / 33012 Lt. Jenny Lewis RN, as seen on the swanage railway. Striking livery. I have heard of 6561 working waterloo to Wrexham  Weymouth and swanage years gone by @LASteve

Sorry, but I think that sucks and is a really bad move by Dapol. Why complicate something that should be so simple to do? I have one of the first run but would not get one of those :no:

Yes, strikes me as a totally backwards step on a really nice model.
