Dapol produces a model of the Class 68 in N gauge. The first batch encompassed the Direct Rail Services, Scotrail and Chiltern Railways liveries the locomotives have been seen in - with a new batch now focussing on the brand-new TransPennine Express colour scheme as well as DRS 'plain blue'. This model showcases Dapol's first "next generation" N gauge model with a number of new features. Factory digital and digital sound fitted versions of the locomotives are also available.
A total of 34 68s have been produced by both Vossloh Espana and Stadler Rail for the UK market and can be found across the country on both express passenger services and heavy freight workings, including nuclear flask trains and more. Several of the class have now been painted into TransPennine Express livery and are to be used across the North with the brand new Mk5 coaching stock.
