I got all excited!
« on: December 10, 2012, 03:29:13 PM »
My N Gauge Journal arrived today.

The Dapol advert is on page 16 and under the heading of ""N" releases in December it lists a 35xx!!!!!  :claphappy:

Sadly it is just a typo and should read 38xx.  ;)

Or is Dapol Dave teasing?  :hmmm:

It's one of those top secret Swindon built 2-12-4 locos.
Built in 1962 then stored in the underground caverns beneath Corsham/Box for future use.
Dapol discovered them and made the model.!!
And it's not even April 1st !
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

35xx, eh?

Wasn't that the return-flue 0-6-2 tender engine with the cab and smokebox at the same end?

I'm interested. I already have two 28xx's which go round my tight bends with no problems. Once I know Dapol's 38xx's will do the same I'll be excited and want two.

Don't get too excited Mick, we've been told at work that only the 27's and rest of the 122's are due this month. the 2884 and Class 22 will now be January.
