  • Poll: Class 73 livery wish-list

    We don't seem to have a wish list for ED liveries so I thought I'd suggest:

    BR blue 73/1
    BR blue large logo / revised
    Intercity (tiny number at bottom of cab)
    Intercity Executive 73/2

    I realise Dapol have done both the blues in the past but they're hard to find, and every example of 73138 in large logo I see seems to have blur around the edges of the numbers.

    What do people think? Anything else to add?

    Network Rail livery is quite striking if not too many modifications

      Indeed. Both variants of the 73/9s would be interesting too.

          Black looks good on everything. And I loved the Fragonset livery.

        That would be nice.
        Or this short-lived variant from 1967:

          I don't recall seeing an N gauge one in "Electric Blue" if that's the correct term? How about that?

            Original as-new - fresh out of the box!

              I think a few also ran in Engineering Grey (73 106/73 136?)..... probably too obscure would be the Merseyrail livery.

                I saw 73108 in thoroughly dull grey at Stewart's Lane:

                  I know it's not really a feasible option, but I sincerely hope that at some point in the future Dapol will re-tool or update the N gauge Class 71. The model will so greatly benefit from wire handrails, working lights and some finer details.

                  Also I quite like the Class 71 in Engineers Grey livery (thanks Andy and Caderrail).

                    With the versatile 73s spreading their ED wings across the network in their (not so) twilight years, and given the wide range of liveries on show, I think a new high spec 73 would be great. And, alas, expensive.

                      N-gauge 73/9 in Caledonian sleeper midnight teal please!

                        It'd be nice but it wouldn't be easy!

                      An early 73/0 in green and 73/1 in blue small yellow panel would be nice. You've done these in OO but never in N
