Dapol are producing a new batch of their highly popular GWR Streamlined Railcar in OO gauge. This new batch will reproduce popular liveries from the original run as well as two new models with a fresh tooling that covers the parcels version of the railcar. Dapol's model focuses on the Gloucester RCW railcars with the smoother streamlined appearance. The model covers usage of the class by both the GWR and British Railways, with all models available with optional factory digital fitting. We are expecting them into stock by Summer 2019.
The Great Western Railway produced a variety of railcars between 1934 and 1942, which survived in regular use until the 1960s. Earlier examples were nicknamed "Flying Bananas" due to their eye-pleasing streamlined bodywork, whilst later examples had a more angular appearance - which proved to be more practical. Replaced by first generation multiple units by the end of 1962, three examples have been preserved.

Painted Sample Revealed
Dapol recently showed off the first painted sample for the Parcels version of the Railcar. The new model features a fresh tooling, which removes the bodyside windows and alters the location of the doors. Further painted samples of both the Parcels railcar and the new batch of passenger units are expected shortly.
