    Hi,
    Maurice (Osborn's) posted today on [email protected] the following:
    "Dapol GWR HST sets and coaches have all arrived in stock today."
    I'll expect an email from my usual supplier presently...

    Regards, Gerry.

    Is there an expected date for the three remaining HST liveries to arrive? Only the GNER ones seem to be available at the moment.

    Thanks

    Definitely, as an ECML fan, GNER / East Coast and Virgin all landing at once is a big bill

    Hi chaps is there any further information yet available about the release of the New HST Booksets?
    Retailers are still showing October 2017 as release date, but since there has been no word or recent updates I don't expect this to happen.
    Unless the element of surprise is being used on these releases which is fun!
    I look forward to seeing future updates about the HST sets when they are ready.

    Thanks,
    Neal.

    A bit annoying when the prototypes have such variations. A Class 73/9 is also near impossible because of this.

    Have to say I thought it looked rather naff - they'd be better to stick to the standard Scotrail blue and silver livery, which is actually pretty decent.

    The issue there is that these will have sliding doors, so the Dapol Mk3 model, with slam doors, wouldn't be correct.

    It might be worth them tooling the new versions as these doors are being fitted to sets for Scotrail, Cross Country and GW (so far - might be more if any other operators plan to retain HSTs for the medium term). The doors slide back into a pocket inside the body - they look quite similar to the doors on a Class 156. This is not the same as the Chiltern ones, which are swing plug doors and move out and to the side when they open. The Chiltern ones are also wider that both the original slam doors and the new-design sliding doors.
