    Yes - 86213 with incorrect yellow windows surrounds...

    Do you have anything specific in mind?

    Haven't we already had a Swallow 86? I would have thought an Executive livery 86 might be nice/better.

    Cheers, Mike

    Oooo yes, I don't like those kind of field days! Nonetheless if I want 86101 specifically then (and as I mentioned to Neil in a PM), I'd be happy to design the bogie and 3D print it. Will be happy to share it too...

    • 86216 - BR Blue - FYP - Meteor


    Let me know what you think - any decent photographs of Les Ross taken of both sides at the same time would be appreciated.....
    "86216 - BR Blue - FYP - Meteor" would be lovely.

    I wouldn't have been deterred by the wrong bogie either JeremiahBunyan but the Dapol bashers out there would have a field day...

    Scruff thanks for that, never knew Caledonian had more than one of them, Neil Dapol, Class 86401 "Mons Meg" seems to be a suitable alternative. Here are some images.

    would 86401 be a suitable replacement for 86101?

    cheers

    Hi Neil Dapol, unfortunate to hear that. The Caledonian Sleeper one was something high on my wishlist, maybe it will have to wait. Though on a lighter note I'll be most happy even if the incorrect bogies are used, if I buy one and I am not satisfied with it, rather than complain I'll simply design an accurate replacement and have them 3D printed.

    Re-tooling is not a likely option at this time. Does anyone have an alternative livery or running number they would like to see produced?

    86101 in Caledonian Sleeper for me! And probably 86259 "Les Ross" in Electric Blue also...

    I hope Dapol can go to the extent of tooling up the Class 87 bogies used by 86101. As a pro you'll have lesser to tool if you do a Class 87 or Class 90 in future which to me is a sensible move. I personally won't be detered by the use of an incorrect bogie frame, but it will put of many people. So I hope Neil Dapol can have a word with the development team!

    You've sold me 2 of those already Neil Dapol !

    86216 and 249.

    I'm a little surprised at 249 in INTERCITY as that was one of the later ones in blue, complete with TDM cables but not sure about the headlight though.

    Doubts now removed, 25th august 1989, complete with headlight and TDM cables as per the Dapol 86. 86249 must have been one of the last 86's to carry rail blue and possibly the only one that Dapol could use in Rail blue with their Headlight/TDM front end tooling...

    86216 carried INTERCITY livery so is there any chance of swapping these two round?

    You could pick most of the class 86/2 if you used the earlier style front end tooling with just the marker lights in plain blue, as per the C & M ltd edition models..

    just a couple of thoughts...

    Cheers

    Something to discuss with the design team and decide on a way forward

    Presumably you will need new bogies for 86101 (another step on the (possible) 87 road)?
