      Any updates on the artwork? If you'll can post for review just like how Neil did so for the HSTs and Class 142s that would be great.

      Personally I don't doubt the colours chosen as I have the Caledonian one on order and judging by the Caledonian Class 68 I think you'll nailed the shade of blue.

    Andy, Neil, how easy would it be to have modified tooling to produce a version with headcodes in blue with the white top and small yellow panel? The only N gauge model in this guise as far as I am aware was the old Lima model.

      No firm production date yet I am afraid.

      That's a sigh of relief, not too fussed about arrival dates. I can now renew my club membership without much to worry about.

      Any updates on the livery sheets?

      Cheers

    Would it be possible to share the RAL codes you'll are using when you'll share images of either the artwork or painted EPs? I'd like to design a Mk3 sleeper to fit the Dapol Mk3 coach chassis and I'd like to match the shade of blue on the Caledonian Sleeper version.

    Cheers!

        Neil Dapol Now that we know there's livery samples already on the inspection tables at Dapol HQ, is there a better idea about the production and delivery dates for the Class 86s?

          Neil Dapol and Joel Dapol is there any scope for a further run of Class 86s in 2021? Would really love to see these in ETL, RfD Europe and Colas Rail liveries.

            Note that one Class 86's carried the ETL and Colas Rail livery. The same name "Orion" also stayed. So if both are being considered, do them as different numbers. I'm fairly certain ETL and Colas had 2 locos each. IIRC Colas took over the ETL locos. So you can always swap numbers and liveries in a future batch (if sales are good)

            The Dapol Class 86 doesn't have the tooling yet to model the Class 86s with cross-arm pantographs. The Dapol Class 86 only has the tooling for the Bracknell-Willis and Stone-Faiveley pantographs.

            The Sommerfeldt 821 isn't far out, just missing the crossover at the base.

            I can assure you that a majority of the people buying it won't like an incorrect pantograph...
