  • HST Spares

    Hi,

    Would it be possible to know if there are any plans to produce spares, particularly motors for the Dapol HSTs. Over the years I have picked up a number of sets from the first releases, but these all seem to be poor runners and the issues all go back to the motors.

    I have been in touch with DCC Supplies, but their response over the last few years has been to wait for the arrival of the new sets. Well they're here, but still no spares. Can somebody from Dapol please sort this out?

    Fortunately my GNER and East Coast sets are running OK at the moment, but it would be nice to be able to fix the sets which aren't working well.

    Thanks.

      Hi, Apologies for the delay, I have chased this up. The spares have been shipped along with 2D-019-007 so will be arriving in 6-7 weeks time. They will be sent to DCC supplies as soon as they arrive.
      Regards

        Hi Andy,

        Thank you for taking the time to chase this up for me, fingers crossed.

      Hi,
      Are you able to say what spares will be available? In particular, are there any bodyshells?
      Thanks

        Vonzack and DavidInYork as per a post I saw on Facebook today from the DCC Supplies Facebook page, they have received their shipment of HST and Class 86 spares. They are currently sorting them out and it will be on their website pretty soon.

        HTH? If I come across more information I'll share it on here.

        Cheers!

          JeremiahBunyan thanks for that. I contacted DCC Supplies earlier in the month and they said they would need to sort through the delivery, but would place an order for what I wanted. Fingers crossed it's not too much longer now.

          Cheers

            I have done what I think is a fairly comprehensive cross reference list of HST spares if anyone wants a copy. Not quite sure how to leave contact details in a secure way??

              If anyone needs them, they can send you a private message (p.m.) via the Dapol Digest, you can then send them your contact details privately. The "Messages" tab can be found on the upper right hand side of the Dapol DIgest website. It sits between the "Notifications" tab and profile tab, in your case it will read "Arthur Hodgett"

              Hi Arthur, Thanks for doing this. If you are happy, I'd be willing to transcribe into a set of tables for posting here?

            Hi Andy, happy for you to make a table or I can send it to you as a pdf, I think when I sent it to you it was an xls file, which the system won't let me upload.

              Hi Arthur, A .PDF would be fine, I'll figure out the best way to post it on the board.

            Hi Andy

            Pdf file sent by email. I have added as many part numbers as are on DCC's spares list currently. As more are added I will try to amend sheet.

            There are some differences I am not completely confident about, for example the 2 and 3 light variants, do they have a different main pcb or is it all handled at the cab end. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than I can comment. Will copy this to the digest for info.

            Regards

            Arthur Hodgett
