    Hi all

    Just showing off a photo of my ex Tyne and Wear 142 which now sports Merseyrail livery.

    Basically I have just reworked the light blue band to black and flint grey, renumbered to 142051 and added the Merseyrail branding which were custom made. Very happy with it and its right at home on my North West Lancs based layout Sutton St. Annes. Other details include backdated overhead warning flashes (pre 1998) and has been given a light weathering to complete.

    Cheers
    Anthony

    Locomotives Illustrated Aug 2012 has article on Pacers. 11 liveries for future issues! GWR chocolate/cream, Manchester PTE orange, Provincial blue, Regional bue/grey and brown/red/white version, Merseyside -yellow, Northern Spirit -turquoise, Arriva -blue (also a version of 1 unit in red and other in green in 2004),FNW -dark blue, Northern -blue/maroon, FGW -dark blue
    There must be many more liveries since 2012 and I have ordered a 2018 book on Pacers to find out more. The article says they could run with all other modern Dmus. I note the doors were changed early on from 4part version to a 2 part version.

    Yes, we had some technical issues and had to withdraw from the production slot. These are now scheduled for production imminently and should be in production very soon. Our apologies for the delay

    JeremiahBunyan I appreciate that it may have been an easy fix but don't see why it should be me who has to do the tinkering. I'm sure I wouldn't be expected to clamber under the bonnet of a new car! Replacement arrived today, excellent service from Hatton's and it's replacement is a whole different beast, smooth runner, very quiet and is pulling 8 Dapol Megafrets around the layout as we speak. Happy day's. Can' wait for the 142 now.

    jacowin80 The Class 68 bogie was so easy to repair, after a lot of handling mine had also unclipped. It actually took about 5 secs to repair. Just slid a suitable sized flat screwdriver over the gear tower housing and then gently pushed the bogie up.

    We had an issue with the destruction testing on the model which has delayed release slightly. We should be going into production shortly though and I will post on here when we have a definitive date.

    No the motor on the loco was working but the wheels where not moving. Apparently it is a fault noted on the model on other forums, something to do with the bogies not been clipped in properly. I am not a technician so would rather return than sort myself. The item was returned on Saturday and I have had shipping notice from Hattons of the replacement today so should be with me by the end of the week. Apart from that the 68 was stunning and faults aside Dapol looking in good form with the 142 on the way. Fingers crossed.

    What problem with the bogie? Did it un-clip or something else?
