    Is there any prospective date we can expect to see these on the shelves ?
    and/or an answer to the question, RE the pictured 2510 Quicksilver ?

    Does anyone know where I can either get the coaches to match the Silver Fox/Quicksilver, or how to kitbash them?

      There is no N gauge Silver Jubilee train available and it is not something you can kitbash convincingly. Bill Bedford (Mousa Models) offers 2mm scale etched brass kits for the train that can reportedly work for N gauge--I have a set waiting to be made and am working on building up the courage to tackle them. Bill produces his 2mm kits on demand once or twice a year. Fox do transfers.

      The grey A4s were built for the Silver Jubilee service but did pull other trains on occasion, the Flying Scotsman for example. Teak Gresley stock is therefore not entirely inappropriate. They are also recorded hauling the Harrogate Pullman, so the old Graham Farish Pullman coaches could be used--these have the correct livery for the period but represent earlier wooden stock. By the mid 30s steel coaches were in use on the East Coast Main Line. That these exquisite carriages, which served in all regions for many decades, have not been reproduced in N gauge is a mystery to me. The Hornby Brighton Belle shows that it can be done. Surely this has to be one of the biggest gaps in the market and something almost every modeler would want to own.

          Silver Fox will be delayed unfortunately, we have found a problem in QC that will require some rectification.

          Does the DCC Decoder support ABC Braking Mode (asynchronous DCC)?

            ABC is a Lenz propriety braking method, which is supported by Loksound in addition to Lenz. The decoders fitted to our loco support brake on DC.

          Dapol once again you've preformed with flying colours!

          I picked up 4482 Golden Eagle From Invicta Model Rail gave her a good run in & chipped her fantastic model there was a choice between this and empire of India, but I went for Golden Eagle being something different. Plus I do like to see and A4 in Green especially in LNER Doncaster green and after seeing the Colour photograph in the Big four in Colour 1935-1950 by David Jenkinson a book I Highly recommend for the Modeller to see not only all the Big Four in there Hay day with there many Lush and striking livery's but to see the Experimental period Hint some good idea's in hear for perhaps future dapol projects wink wink nudge nudge at the start of nationalisation. To quote or say where the picture of 4482 is, is on page 54 taken in December 1936. Getting back to the model fantastic once again. even Our Club President Professor Tim Watson & The layout leader of Copenhagen fields was highly impressed with the model & livery. good job once again team

          P.S will it be possible to do LNER A4's with Teak coach packs in the future?

            Golden Eagle looks great Southernlad! I've got Sea Eagle in garter blue and am very happy with it. I'm also very pleased to see that the numbering and lettering on this recent batch is much nicer/improved than on my LNER A3s and seeing the axle boxes lined out on your model is great!

            Need to get a job and save some money because Golden Eagle and Silver Fox are definitely on my wish list!

                Hi We received these last week but have put them into quarantine as we found livery blemishes on the ose end which we found unacceptable. A full post on our website will be made shortly.

              Hi Joel Dapol Has a full post been released on the website and I've missed it? Is there any timeline for when these will actually be released?

                A post has not been issued yet as we do not have a new release date yet. The full batch has been rejected and new decorated body shells have to be produced. My best guess for re-delivery would be September unfortunately :-( my apologies.

                That's sad to hear Joel, but Dapol have done the right thing. I really admire your actions taken to make the correct model. I hope others understand that it was for the best. It'll be a pity if they don't understand.

                I agree there Jeremiah. Much better later, and unblemished. Great to see a high standard being held to.

              Picked mine up from the shop yesterday, looks fantastic.
              So that's Silver Link, Quicksilver & Silver Fox - what's the chances of Silver King being released in the same livery to complete the set?

                Well, order and received the Silver Fox A4 direct from a Dapol. It's been a wee while coming, but it was well worth the wait. I have to say the detail of this model is brilliant, and I'm very impressed by the fox itself, etched with superb detail. It's such a gorgeous little model. I'm very impressed. Good work Dapol!

                  Thanks PaulShanahanUK. We apologise for the delay, QC delays happen from time to time, but as you can see, it's paid off in the end.
