I keep looking at Dapol's web site and it still says expected this quarter. The're running out of time !  Anybody got any inside information as to the likelihood of September or maybe this year ?

And while we're about it anybody know if the class 50 will arrive this year ?

Hi

I'm still waiting for the 56 which originally had September 2014 as the due date and was production scheduled then. Still the same status but says 2nd quarter 2015 which I do believe has passed. How hard can a re run be?

Cheers

Paul

I have a Farish 33 with split gears which I will fix sometime this year, and Murphy's Law states as soon as I get it up and running the Dapol version will become available. I'll keep you posted...

I've waited so long for a Class 33 in NSE that I've bought a kit and will build one myself - although a little bigger!  :D

Got an e-mail from a certain Liverpool retailer today which had the Class 33 featured. Oh good I thought, about time those came in. Sadly when I clicked on the link it seems it is only a list of model numbers and pricing for pre-orders. Hopefully though it is a sign that these little fellas are not too far from the Liverpool docks... Anyway here's the list:

2D-001-005 Class 33/0 33020 BR Blue  £99
2D-001-005D Class 33/0 33020 BR Blue  £119
2D-001-006 Class 33/0 33008 BR Green "Eastleigh" yellow front.  £99
2D-001-006D Class 33/0 33008 BR Green "Eastleigh" yellow front.  £119
2D-001-007 Class 33/0 33042 Triple grey construction sector  £99
2D-001-007D Class 33/0 33042 Triple grey construction sector  £119
2D-001-008 Class 33/0 D6561 BR Green full yellow front  £99
2D-001-008D Class 33/0 D6561 BR Green full yellow front  £119

Do you want the good news or the bad news first NN...

Hattons still have D6597 on their website (it was just not on today's e-mail list)...
But, if you take a look at the Dapol website 6597 is not on their list...

Hmmm, it's not very clear is it! I have a blue class 33/1 and a green one on pre-order, so we will have keep a close eye on what actually comes off the slow boat from China  :confused2:

I realise your post was made some time ago but I have only just found this thread.
Once again we see a manufacturer assuming that just because a loco is in BR Blue it MUST have a TOPS number!  :veryangry:
D65XXs ran in BR Blue for years without TOPS numbers - I just wish some manufacturer would realise this and make a few without.
If it's not a Diesel Hydraulic then it's not a real locomotive.

 :D  Reminds me of my spotting days back in the 1970s while waiting for a train and we had heard a 'Hoover' ( :thumbsdown:) was on it rather than a Western  :drool:.

The reference number I quoted is on their list, Mike, but it looks like they've changed the running number to D6539 (not that it bothers me particularly)

Have had my 33 on pre-order since July 2013 so I guess I can wait another month (or two)!  :doh:

If you're keen to learn the latest ETA,why not  drop them an email. Kevin was kind enough to promptly respond to my inquiry regarding the Grange.

WARNING - THOSE OF A NERVOUS DISPOSITION READ NO FURTHER.

I remember it well. I had one back then, but just look at that coupling!!  ::)

The things we'd put up with back then are unbelievable today.
