    Thanks for the feedback. Glad you are enjoying the model.

    Just a quick note to say I have finally acquired one of these, seen here somewhat far away from its usual stomping grounds:




    Very nice locomotive, runs nice and smoothly, looks (to my eyes) like a Class 50.

    I do appreciate the revised, more compact case providing internal storage for the instructions booklet *and* a pocket which holds the bag'o'bits in place, so when taking the loco out there's no need to worry about bags'o'bits or accompanying literature going missing.

    Jeremiah, it carried it from 87-89 in service then went back to NSE from 89 till 91 when it was withdrawn. It ran in preservation in this livery at the start but has not carried it since approx. 1999. Would be good to have it back on her

    How happy am I reading this! Hopefully it's a few months after the first batch. I'll be broke😂

    I'd be interested to know for how long did that particular locomotive carry that Railfreight Grey livery?

    According to Kernow Model Centre who I suggested via Facebook might want to model Defiance in Railfreight grey they responded with "we did ask - they (Dapol) said its on their to do list" not sure if this is via Dapol or another 3rd party but watch out for Defiance to add to your collections too

    Will the painted samples "hopefully" be here for the members open day? Hoping to come up for this and would love to see them

    Hi Andy

    Thank you for your reply, I'll leave joining for a couple of months then to allow for delays, I reserved your Limited Edition on the weekend, are the Fifty Fund planning a loco? May try and get along to that weekend, sounds interesting.

    Hi Richard,
    Membership runs for 12 months after joining. Regarding the models delivery, It's a little early in the cycle to say for sure as there is always the opportunity to improve delivery times, or for delays to occur, I will have more accurate dates during the summer.
    Currently, EP's (engineering prototypes) are due in July and I have scheduled the decorated samples to arrive in time for the 50 fund gala in Kidderminster (http://www.fiftyfund.org.uk/index.php/events) on the 4th/5th/6th October where they will be on display. Assuming any changes are either trivial or not required then production would start during December for shipment January, arrival in the shops February/March.

    How are the class 50's coming along, I am looking at finance planning so I can pre-order Sir Edward Elgar amongst others, but need to join the club first. Does the membership run from when you join or for the calendar year?

    The class 33 came with etched nameplates already attached.

    Cheers

    Yes would be a good Idea if it comes with nameplates for centurion too, or at least sell some that fit exactly over the printed ones on the body side

    The bogies themselves weren't different to the standard type (which are largely interchangeable between 37s, 50s and Deltics, with some caveats), but the gearing was different to make it more suitable for freight. The experiment appears not to have been particularly successful as no more were re-geared. I understand that the bogies which were used are currently under preserved 37003.

    It was but the name was transferred to 50040 after 50011 went to Crewe Works.
