        Best you tag one of the Dapol staff so that they see it.

      I got some info from Gaugemaster. The release has been pushed back to some point later this year.

        In January Gaugemaster told me it would be March. In March they said they have no further news.

          Everything seems to have gone very quiet on these. Does anyone have any news?

              Yes we should be showing revised decorated samples soon.

            Can I ask where these are in 'the pipeline' please? My personal pipeline is becoming jammed up, what with the class 73, the BoB and 2 Westerns in limited edition liveries

              newportnobby they are currently checking painted samples for approval. Gaugemaster has been sharing pictures on each sample on a daily basis.

            JeremiahBunyan Thanks for that but all that's done is make me more hungry for it. Anyone know timescale from approval to arrival in UK?
            It's just one of nine locos I have on order

              It takes anywhere between 4-6 months from approval samples to production. But there's a lot of factors that can affect that and delay the model.

            I believe it’s now hoped for end of year (2020).

              Could someone please give a clue as to the likely availability sequence of the class 73, the Osborns weathered desert sand Western and the Cheltenham Model Centre Golden ochre Western?
              I have pre orders on for all of them (I'll not even ask about the Bulleid pacific also on pre order)
              ​​​​​​​Thanks

                The answer for an ETA on the Class 73 is given in the two posts just above yours i.e. end of Q4 2020, which is December 2020.

                The ETA for the Class 52 is given as end of Q3 2020. That translates to end of September 2020 (without delays).

              But where have these dates come from? Can you point me at a recent post from Dapol stating that please?

                The dates for the Class 73s as Andy has said comes from Guagemaster which in turn comes from Dapol. The dates for the Class 52s come from Dapol's very own online catalogue which is updated often.

                The N Gauge Westerns are a little behind schedule and are due to be shipped at the end of the month. Expect them in store mid November.

              I got the Q4 2020 class 73 date from Gaugemaster in the last week or so.
