    Hi Andy, very good news, as a long shot guess the body is still the same but will I be able to use a body from first batch on the new chassis, along with sound?? as seen on the Open Day slide show.

        Andy Dapol can you please clear one of my doubts, on this forum and on Antics website the Chiltern Class 121 shows up in the Blue Chiltern livery (which is what I am after). https://digest.dapol.co.uk/filedata/fetch?photoid=6139 I think it's 2D-009-005

        However on other websites like Hattons etc. the image shows a Blue/Grey livery with Chiltern branding. So can you please clarify which livery it will be?

          Whichever Dapol choose to produce, I'll be okay with. If it's the Chiltern B/G one my wallet will be happy. If it's the Chiltern Blue one I'll be happy.

        Has there been a clarification of which Chiltern livery is planned?
        So far as I can see with the 977873 number the car was blue and grey and when repainted into the Chiltern blue livery it resumed being 55020?

          Not yet, but I'm pretty certain that the good folks at Dapol are busy with the recent landing if the GWR railcars. And also other things like the B4 livery samples and updated Class 142 artwork. I'm sure Andy will reply soon.

          I've removed the livery info and pictures off of the anticsonline site. I used the files from here as the basis for the entry without realising the catalogue said something different. Thanks to Jeremiah for pointing out the issue. I'll update anticsonline again when we have the final answer.

          Thanks for updating the Antics website @IasS , where did you get those artwork images from?! I hope Andy Dapol can provide some clarification soon. Maybe a clue lies in the image, the other two general release Class 121s have all the data filled in i.e. product code, keys, colour charts etc. But the Chiltern sample doesn't. Maybe Dapol are yet to make a decision.

        Dapol have listed W977873 (formerly 121022) being produced, which has never carried the chiltern blue livery however has been used by Chiltern as a route learning vehicle in Blue Grey. Think this needs to be clarified?

          Yes, because no one knows which Class 121 it will be. It's listed as the Chiltern B/G W977873 but the artwork shows 55020 in Chiltern Blue. So what is the real one - the one in the description or the one in the picture?

        Has there been any confirmation on the livery of the Chiltern Class 121?

          IanS based on the updated Dapol Online catalogue updated in Jan 2018 the Chiltern Railways Class 121 will be in the Blue/Grey livery. http://www.dapol.co.uk/Catalogue/22/index.html
