    HI @Ian3721,
    Other than that the project is continuing and is due for release after the OO version there is little to report. We produced the fully working EP sometime ago and are working on decorated samples at this time. Once we receive these, we will show photos and announce this via the media as usual. I'm sorry I don't have news of further progress as we have many projects in all scales and are finding that definite schedules for all of these are subject to current working conditions in China, as well as the global shipping difficulties.

    Hi Joel

    Is there any news on the much wanted class 59 in N gauge?

    Hi Joel,
    Thanks for the reassurance, I do want a singular National Power version (KMRC pre-ordered) but I don't want to have to have two! I also have my 'most longed for' ARC livery pre-ordered.

    Regards, Gerry.

    Hello Gerry, yes a bit unfortunate but we are already committed and have numerous special commissions already on order. We are expecting the first shots in a couple of months, so no turning back. I am sure the RT model will be good, but equally I am confident ours will also pass muster and I guess customers can make their own mind up. Not great financially for either of us I fear :-(

    Hi,
    @ Joel Dapol I find the news from Revolution Trains most disturbing:
    http://www.revolutiontrains.com/emd-...om-revolution/
    Have you been able to assess the implications regarding viability of two Class 59 manufacturers in N?
    Whilst there are questionable 'comparisons' already being propounded, I'd rather not "jump ship" unless you consider Dapol could be forced to withdraw your much anticipated N version.

    Regards, Gerry.

    Joel Dapol, I assume you’re talking about the OO gauge ones, not the N gauge ones…? I

    All the development work is done now and we await a production slot. I would say release would be in the next 6 months.
Working...
