    Photo in Rail of 20/12/17 (page 33) -67021 an 67024 -looks incomplete? Pullman liveries sell well eg Class73 and n Society Stove.- both had re-runs to meet demand.. I would buy both!

    "I thought they were, until I realized I was completely mistaken. I think they currently "Top & Tail" with some NMR stock or something like that. "

    As I said in my post, they are for the British Pullman. This is a dining train owned by Belond hotels, and is composed of genuine Pullman carriages. Not sure how these could be mistaken for an RHTT water-jetting train! DB has the haulage contract (and has had for quite a long time). No doubt the locos will get used for other things when not required for this, in the same way that the royal train locos do, but there are plenty of other 67s available (the fleet is not heavily used) for RHTT work and the attendant gunge. From photos which have appeared it looks like there is only one RHTT diagram operated using 67s this year.

    Belmond also owns the Royal Scotrman train, which is currently hauled by GBRF CLass 66s (there are two in a maroon livery to match the stock - don't think any manufacturer has done these in model form yet). They also until very recently owned the Northern Belle, but that has now been sold to a partnership headed by WCRC, the Carnforth-based operator which specialises in railtours. Currently the train is hauled by DRS Class 57s (there are two in matching livery), but it seems very likely that WCRC will start using their own locos once the contract with DRS expires, whenever that is.

    I agree, beautiful locos! I would certainly be up for buying this pair along with a pair in Colas livery.

    They do look nice. What are the odds they’ll be top & tailed on RHTT and grimy as heck within the next month?

    Wow, what beauties, (Class 67's for the Pullman Dining train) I would certainly buy this pair! Ideally as a twin pack, a powered and dummy, but not wanting to open the discussion on dummies again, it should not be too difficult to remove the power bits and have a few spares for the future.

    An excellent suggestion, thank you

    Looks simple and yet elegant. I think Hornby and Dapol would earn a few extra bucks from selling these....

    Another possible livery for the next production run: http://www.wnxx.com/17/1710/291017/67021.htm
    There are two of them - 67021 and 67024, and they have been painted up for use with the British Pullman dining train. This has long been 67-hauled most of the time (top and tail generally), but this is the first time that locos have been painted to match the stock.

    Thanks Joel, that's just what I need.

    Yes to both. We are working on the website allowing this to happen automatically, but in the meantime it may be worth contacting us via email and we can do the calculation manually. I would email Andrea on [email protected] with your requirements and she can arrange for the invoice to be produced and payment taken.

    Does Dapol deduct VAT for overseas customers? And as a Dapol Collector's Club member will I be able to avail of the discount and have VAT deducted?

    I think it's a Hatton's issue. Currently the DC W&S version isn't even listed. The DCC version is. All other versions are now showing in-stock with the exception of the DB Schenker DC version.

    Well maybe not N gauge, but OO gauge I've seen on a few occasions recently where they've sold out within a day or few. Judging by today's market and the way things are going things are being made in smaller batches and tend to sell faster and it applies to N gauge also.

    In the case of Hatton's they probably had just enough to satisfy pre-orders and then a few more (which people could've snapped up quickly).
Working...
