Dapol have produced a highly detailed model of the Class 68 in OO gauge. Their model represents this relatively new locomotive well, with an intricately detailed body and underframe and a huge range of features. Two batches have so far been produced with models in Chiltern Railways, Scotrail and Direct Rail Services liveries available to order now.
Dapol are producing a second batch of their extremely popular TransPennine Express liveried Class 68s. The first batch of these models sold through immediately and were highly sought after. These two new variations are currently expected to arrive by Q3 2020.
Place your order now to avoid disappointment! Don't forget - we only take payment once the models have arrived in stock and are ready to ship to you.
