Very good! Do you by any chance have any of the loco connected to the trailer showing exactly what joins to what?

Unfortunately that's one thing I dont have all the times I visited Didcot it was either in or out of the shed and not joined to anything unfortunately :yahoo_mini:

I do know that the object under the box is an electric connection that joins the loco to the trailer electrically though there is a mechanical connection via the mechanism that has a chain on between the steam heating pipe and the coupling it may be for the regulator but I stand corrected if I'm wrong.

Not my photo but I found this which shows the connections perfectly. I hope it helps.

The photo came from this site which explains exactly how it all connects and works. 

If the photo infringes any copywriter mods please remove it the photo is 2/3 of the way down the page linked

Along Warren Shepard parts have been mentioned, I found the following with more parts provided.

 

Hope this helps those who want auto-fitted locos.

Just for the record-

 

Dapol (and Andy Forty in particular) were awarded the Gwyn Humphreys Award for Innovation at Warley this morning for the "no tools" method of DCC sound installation which is in the 14/48xx, which I understand are "due shortly".

I can reccomend the Pete Roles parts as I have used these on my MOK 14/48xx kits before.

The chap I spoke to on the Dapol stand at Warley said these were on board ship and he seemed confident they would be in the shops by Chr*****s.

Tower update from Dapol posted after Warley:

 

"The Dapol 48xx / 14xx and 58xx are in production and progressing nicely but with no confirmation as of yet as to whether they will be air freight in or sent via sea freight when they are completed in December."

Which is not what I was told.

A case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is up to maybe ?

Dapol emailed this to club members this week. 

 

HI,

We are hoping to have this Special Edition Loco – 14XX, exclusive to Club Members only, delivered into us about the middle of December.

 

Please note – if you are ordering a chipped version we cannot guarantee delivery before Christmas.

Dapol phoned me yesterday to confirm by bank details for my 1401 with sound, she said they where being air shipped to the UK and said “they are telling people they’ll have them by Xmas”....

 

Who knows????

It seems everything has gone quiet on the arrival of these locos.  I am right to assume that no news is bad news and they won't appear until the new year?

According to Tower Models website not expected until after Christmas/New Year now:-

 

"Latest from Dapol is that the first four liveries have just been completed in China are are undergoing quality checks which should be completed tomorrow. The factory has confirmed that it is now too late to get them here before Christmas even if they were flown in so it is looking like early in the New Year before we will receive the first of these. "

Not unexpected and not a bad thing really.

Not sure what they used for the lamp iron on the left of the pic, but it looks a tad overscale to me...

It's a board clipped over the lamp iron that describes the history of the loco if I remember rightly...

Which ties in with what Hattons advised me by email on the 2nd September 2019.

 

Dapol 7S-006-021U Class 14xx 0-4-2T in BR black with early emblem - unnumbered. Our latest information from the supplier suggests this item will arrive with us between January 2020 & March 2020. Whilst we are hopeful this information is accurate, manufacturer lead times are frequently prone to be delayed.

From Dapol’s Facebook page: 

 

Going to have hours of fun photographing this little lot tomorrow. 14xx/48xx and 58xx models are on their way and expected to be going out to stockists at the end of February.
