Now is your chance to ask for a Dapol class 50.. or anything else you'd like I suppose!



Enjoy

Asked for GWR Fruit D but now you mention it a Class 50 would be great. That said I have a feeling that we may get one from someone soon. TINGS needs a announcement or two. :Class37: :Carriage:

Isn't it just the products that have been discontinued, rather then new products you'd like them to do?

The last question is what one product would you like them to introduce. I asked for a Schools class loco. :)

Out of the locos listed I'd only buy an M7 so I opted for that.

For the last question I suggested a Midland/LMS 2P :) There were loads of them and they lasted years lol

I ticked all the boxes. I mean, if they had already identified a gap in the market for the products they have done, why would they think we don't want them any more? I'm fairly sure they havn't exhausted all the possible liveries and numbers on them either.
As for what I'd like to see them do, I suggested any kind of Pacific, as long as its up to Britannia spec.  However, thinking about it I should have suggested a 155. It'd be easy to make using the tooling for the 153.
Cheers,

David

Has to be the 4-CIG. Please?

Then again, they will probably save the best until last...

More realistically, a scaled-down 423 may well be a future EMU offering should Dapol choose this route.

If theres an EMU to be done, a 321, 323, 332/333 would be good, Appeals to those of us that model railways in the North. Perhaps the 323 would be best, they have carried quite a few liveries and have quite a large area of operation around the Birmingham and Manchester areas

I think Dapol have done pretty well with DMU's, particularly the more modern ones.. 153, 156, 142 and 121 to come etc. Not that I'd say no to a 166 or 313 lol

I was tempted to suggest the time is right for a Princess Coronation or Royal class to current standards though :)

I voted for a Class 31 in various liveries. the grafar version is long overdue a '21st century makeover' i.e lighting, dcc, usual modern features. dapol could beat them by releasing this work-horse before they re-model their own :Dapol:
