Dapol OO Gauge Class 68
Due to the popularity of previous batches, Dapol are producing another run of Class 68 diesel locomotives in OO gauge. This new batch will see the popular DRS compass livery return but for the first time ever you will be able to purchase a loco in both TransPennine Express and DRS plain blue liveries - thus completing the range of liveries that the locomotives have worn so far.
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.
The new batch of models are expected into stock between Dec 2018 and Jan 2019.
Painted Samples Showcased - 27/11/2018
At Warley 2018, Dapol showed us the decorated samples for the next batch of Class 68 locomotives. These are early samples and Dapol advised that there are still some amendments yet to be made. As with the previous batches, these models won't disappoint with plenty of separately fitted details and a weighty chassis. Again, these are early samples and there are still some amends to be made.
Below you can see new painted samples of two of the forthcoming models.
