Dapol reveals 'O' gauge
Dapol has announced plans to produce the Great Western Railway (GWR) streamlined railcar for 'O' gauge.
First introduced in 1933, these art-deco style railcars remained in service into the 1960s until replaced by British Rail's new Pressed Steel Class 121 vehicles.
Dapol is planning five different 'O' gauge models, with each being offered as Digital Command Control (DCC) ready, DCC fitted and DCC sound fitted variants. The impressive specification includes low-profile five-pole skew-wound motor, all-wheel pick-up, 21-pin DCC decoder socket, directional lighting, cab and interior illumination, decorated seating, sliding luggage doors and much more. Identities include railcar 12 in lined chocolate and cream with GWR monogram (7D-011-001/D/S), railcar 10 in lined chocolate and cream with GWR monogram (7D-011-002/D/S), railcar 16 in lined chocolate and cream with GWR twin cities crests (7D-011-003/D/S), railcar W11 in BR lined chocolate and cream (7D-011-004/D/S) and railcar W8W in BR lined carmine and cream (7D-011-005/D/S).
Prices are set at £350 for DCC ready, £380 DCC fitted and £480 DCC sound fitted models. Delivery is anticipated during the first quarter of 2021.
