Following on from the 4mm Turbot a Bogie Bolster E would be fantastic.
Also some more modern image steel wagons. A 4mm IHA curtain sided bogie steel wagon would be great. It's a bit out of my period but I have a hankering for the Margam to Dee Marsh steel train. We have the BYAs and Tiphook KIAs. An IHA would be great to go with them. All hauled by a class 60. I remember seeing them thundering through Leominster station at 60mph. The platforms would shake! Great stuff.

Another vote for the 07 shunter in 00. Nice eye catching original green livery, BR blue, and further industrial livery's and I'm sure it would run nicely if the Sentinal and well tank are anything to go by.

Having shown yourselves to be very capable in producing OO models (BWT, 22, 10000) I would like to see further OO models in the range.

Without being too specific, I think Dapol wouuld be sensible in trying for things which are less likley to be duplicated by the Big 2, and things such as 1st Gen DMUs, small tank/tender steam engines (although Bachmann does do these) and suitable coaching stock seem to be the way forward, especially as now all the main diesel locos seem to be convered off.

Any suggestions for future models obviously have to be commercially viable, not just 'my favourite loco' as wishlists often produce. I for one would like to see the aforementioned Pendolino released, though I fully understand why Dapol have effectively cancelled this - it would cost a small fortune to produce, be extremely expensive to buy, and would only appeal to a limited number of modellers.

In terms of potential commercial releases for the contemporary era in N:

158 - yes Farish has this, but they aren't showing any sign of updating it, and it definitely needs it. Plenty of liveries and a wide geographic area.
59 - lots of variations, but the 66 chassis already developed must lower development costs here
165/166/365 networker family - a lot of different liveries here
180 - perhaps this instead of the 390? More livery choices, and now runs in many different parts of the country
321 - If Farish's 350 proves popular this would be an ideal depot-mate
395 - If there's ever a year that a Javelin will sell in N, its 2012...
In rolling stock - more departmental/Network Rail wagons and coaches, infrastructure trains are proving popular it seems

I've often thought the UK market needed a simple kit for a small to medium-sized turntable. I know there are a few specialist etched kits for advanced modellers, but a simple plastic kit to complement your existing larger turntable would be interesting for all those branch terminuses and other smaller stations.

How about a proper British steam-outline industrial loco - such as a Peckett or Andrew Barclay?


I was thinking along much the same lines. A beginner's kit is availiable for an Andrew Barclay of course so I'd be inclined to lean towards a Peckett or RS&H 0-4-0ST. Alternatively a "Big Four" Dock Tank such as the Midland Deeley 0-4-0T (fairly long lived machines) or the GWR Avonside 1101 class 0-4-0T. Similar Avonsides were used in industry (Including the fairly well known Cadbury No.1), but both classes have a suitably industrial look to them to appeal to the freelance industrial modeller (well, it'd be better than a repainted "Pug") while still also appealing to the Big Four/ BR majority- much like the Sentinel.

How about the mk3 emu`s. If engineered right you could have 316 to322, 455/6 and the 210 demu. Would require a flexible production method for the different windows and fron ends, but could use a n gauge dmu mechanism to allow underfloor mounting for a full interior. Or the mk1 emu`s, if both these can be brought out quickly enough, you could get the jump on bachy.

As previously mentioned a class 122 in 00 gauge would be great, also another industrial loco to go with the sentinel. An impressive model would be a large rail crane, either modern image or 1960's or both. Some new plastic loco kits would also be good (to go with the 9f, 4mt ..etc)

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the opportunity. SR Bulleid designed EMU 4Sub/2Hal, 4/2Epb/2Hap. Long lasting with quite a few livery variations. Also class508 type Emu. Scope there for the overhead versions too. Sorry for the SR bias.

Cheers for now, Ian.

I wouldn't normally publicly lobby for something (but seeing as you've asked for it ;)) I would like to second m'learned friend's motion and also invite opinion from others on this. I'm sure, collectively, we could come up with some intelligent thinking of suitable prototypes that would allow for maximum flexibility for future development of other models.

For me it has to be Mk2 coaches in n-gauge (air con and non-air con - Blue-grey midland and eastern as well as western!) - though as someone has already pointed out, I suspect Farish may have this in their sights. Then:

Class 81-84 in n-gauge
Deltic in n-gauge
Class 50 in n-gauge
Class 25 in n-gauge
another vote for a 33 in n-gauge
Class 27 in n-gauge
Class 40 in n-gauge

I'd really like this. The DJH kit is a 14" Barclay (i think). Barclays did all sorts of sizes, depending on the client. A really good Big barclay (0-6-0) would really fit the bill. Failing that, a wee Peckett or RSH would be just as nice.... A 12" Barclay chassis is the same basic design for both steam & fireless, just turned around-thats about it!

Or.... Being cheeky time... How about a kit of parts to turn the Electroen 'thing' into something really special (or realistic, whichever comes sooner....)

Regards,
Ian

I'd second the wish for a BR CCT (both in N and OO), Class 33,27, 50 and 55 in N, and throw the following into the mix (any combo of N and OO just so long as it includes N)...
  • MK3 BFO
  • MK3 SLE(P)
  • MK2 Pullman
  • AL6 version of the Class 86 to go with the above MK2's which has bookset written all over it :)

N gauge pendolino for me please. I understood this to be on the backburner. Is it now off the hob completely? :(

I'll second the motion for a deltic as well.

In 00 I would love to see you dip a toe in the possibilities north of the border. Think of all those locos with evocative names esp Scots,Glens and Scottish Directors! So far this is a much neglected area just waiting for someone to take the plunge.

Thanks for asking
Gavin

N Gauge Class 50 and MK2's, Castle, GWR Mogul (as announced by Ixion) Fruit D, Mermaid, GWR coaching stock, 4 wheel SR coaches or something to go with Terrier.
Will the catalogue still be sent out free to members of Dapol club?

Hi Dave,

Personally my wish list would be for some 00 DMU's to complement the new Hydraulics that are coming on stream for the Western Region. In particular, classes 117, 118, 119, 120, 121 and 122. These will fill a huge gap in the market for first generation DMU's.

Regards

Hi Dave,

I would really like to see an industrial diesel shunter something like either an 0-4-0 or 0-6-0 sentinal as these were in wide spread use over a large time frame and could be ideal on large and small layouts serving various industry.

All the best,
Mark
