  • Something a little different for the Dapol Class 122, blue SYP

    I love the Dapol Class 121 and 122 DMUs and I'm glad this model exists in N gauge because the class was the backbone of the passenger train service at the location I'm modelling. I've got versions in BR Green (speed whiskers and SYP), Blue/Grey, Network Southeast, GWR 150 and Regional Railways but I've been missing a plain blue version. Having seen a photo from 1967 of M55003 in the short-lived Blue with small yellow panels I really wanted that livery variant (as 55003 worked through the area where I've based my layout).

    I couldn't do a respray myself but my other half treated me to a Class 122 and respray from West Coast Resprays as a 40th birthday present. I thought I'd share the result as I think it looks rather good.
