  • N Gauge Livery of 68 001?

    I am veyr much looking forward to seeing the class 68, and I have been following the updates with much interest. I have seen that the OO version, DRS will be selling a limited edition of 68 001. Are there any plans to add this number for the N gauge version? It could make a nice exclusive running number for collector club members maybe?

    Farish did a similar thing with the 70s, 001 was available in OO but not N, and I think it would be a shame if we couldn't have the chance to have 68001 in N gauge.

    A very good idea if DRS do not want it themselves.

      Now the OO version is available, How long before tooling is authorised for the N gauge models?

      Just seen Railtec trasfers are offering a renumbering transfer set and a 3d printed nameplate choice in 4mm - have asked Steve if 2mm version on the cards ! If yes then doing 68001 off a standard early 68 always possible

          My Class 68 arrived too...and what a beauty it is! A fine model and an example of Dapol's excellent work. Need to wait for a TPE Class 68 now. And a special thanks once again to Dapol, I remember randomly asking for 68001...and here it lies infront of me on my workbench today.
