Dapol’s next ‘Brits’ near completion


Dapol has revealed decorated samples of its new batch of ’N’ gauge BR Standard ‘Britannia’ 4-6-2s.

The ‘7MT’-rated ‘Pacifics’ were the first of British Railways’ Standard steam locomotive designs and two of the 55 built are preserved.

The models feature finely moulded body and tender with separately added details, a heavy die-cast chassis and all-wheel pick-ups, cast and painted wheels.

The specification also includes a super-creep motor for controlled pulling power and fine slow speed control, plus factory-fitted traction tyres. Details include finely etched nameplates and an accessory pack containing further detailing and spares.

The planned liveries include 70000 Britannia in BR unlined black with early crest (Cat No: 2S-017-006), 70050 Firth of Clyde in BR lined green with early crest (2S-017-007), 70051 Firth of Forth in BR lined green with late crest (2S-017-008), 70010 Owen Glendower in BR unlined green with late crest (2S-017-009) and an ‘East Anglian’ set featuring 70039 Sir Christopher Wren and four coaches (2S-017-010).

Available DCC ready, locomotives are priced at £144.95 each, while the ‘East Anglian’ set is priced at £260.00.
