  • Virgin trains DVT

    I hope this is the right spot but as i previously mentioned in another topic will there be another run of the mark 3 DVT in the original virgin trains livery? I've been searching the second hand market but the current going rate is enough to make your eyes water

      Splendid news I look forward to it, hopefully being outbid has saved me a few pounds in the long run.

    Look forward to the announcement.

    I would like to second the request for a Original Virgin Mk3 DVT.
    Personally I would be interested in one to re-brand so I could model one of the first Scotrail Edinburgh - North Berwick rakes which operated between 2003-2005.

            It's nice to see. I had Intercity in mind though...

              I would also like to add that many of us are yearning for an Intercity DVT that has the correct shade of dark grey/black, which matches the more recent runs of MK3s. The original DVT release and subsequent one in (2015?) were both incorrect. I'm sure many will forgive this mistake if the correct one were to be released in this latest batch - I imagine it would sell pretty well. Especially as there are suitably liveried 86 and loco-hauled MK3s currently in the catalogue.
