    I tried to follow the link from an old newsletter email to register my interest but the link didn't work so seriously want one but had to work out if I could afford it

        Hi Joel/Dapol

        How are you doing with expressions of interest?
        is this likely to be a goer?
        is there anything we can do e.g. on the other forums to drum up interest?

          Hi Bob, The expressions of interest did not go that well and we were a bit underwhelmed by the response, however, we are keen to do the project and will probably go ahead in the next month or so. So watch this space for more news in the next few weeks.

          I am not sure if there was supposed to be feedback from the expression of interest forms - I emailed mine but received no confirmation... Tony

        Hi, I'm member of the 125 group who have just issued their 40 year anniversary edition magazine (Issue 116 Autumn 2016). The Miller project is their big drive currently and I was expecting to see a big write up about this model, but looked through it twice, and could not see a mention at all. I wonder how widely the intimation of the project has been circulated.

          It was featured in a previous magazine when the model was announced - so probably nothing else to report yet.

                The expression of interest phase has come to an end and was used to gauge the level of interest in the model. If Dapol produce the model we will let you know how you can get hold of one. Please see earlier post by Joel on the subject and keep your fingers crossed....
                Regards

                Hi Joel, Andy, Neil et al. at Dapol,
                I'm the daughter of an original BR engineer on the Prototype HST (Tony Kirk), he has been running OO gauge for a long time, but has now down-sized to 'N' gauge (space reasons) and although we have had HST liveried trains his heart was always with his beloved Protoype. So I would love to be able to get at least the power car for his new layout if you decide to go ahead. It would bring back some special memories of a magical time.
                P.s. You may remember him as he used to live in Glyn and would always make an excuse to drop in and see what was happening when he drove by!
                Regards,
                Helen

                    how do I go about preordering this because I can't see any links and I would like to get one as am thinking of switching to N and this would be a nice model to get.

                      Simply send Dapol an email expressing your interest to buy one. IIRC the email ID is [email protected]. I'm welcome to be corrected.

                    I was wondering if this project is still going ahead?

                    It may be worth looking again at interest as I am not convinced that the project managed to get that well advertised and the configuration of the proposal changed (with two-part coach sets) that may make it more attractive.

                    Could I also suggest that expressions of interests received by email to Dapol are acknowledged as I still have no idea if mine was received.

                    Regards

                    Tony

                      Hi Tony, Thanks for your comments and we take on board your fair criticism regarding our handling of the EOI, it could have been better thought through, Unfortunately, since we first suggested the concept, we have experienced a marked devaluation of the pound. This has made the project even more risky as the break-even is now higher (by ~15%). It is not cancelled but we are looking for improved market conditions before we make a decision.

                      Joel - Fully understand the high risk of these projects and not helped by the money markets/exchange rates - many thanks for the update. Tony

                      Hello Arthur, It will be appearing on our Facebook,Twitter feeds etc and it will also feature in our magazine advertising regularly, but please tell anyone you think would be interested as numbers are key.

                    It really is good to see the HST-P back on track. I hope the release for this isn't too rushed as I really would like to have one but my wishlist and list of pre-orders is already quite long.

                      You should have some time (no rushing from Dapol I can assure you) as we have to get close to the break even number of pre-orders and then we have to produce the moulds and decorations etc.

                      If it's release is sometime around March/April 2019 or after I am up for a set. I'll be interested in a pack of power cars, the 2-pack of buffet cars and the 4-pack of other coaches (forgive me as rolling stock codes aren't my stronghold).
