An announcement of an announcement

Dapol are producing a class 59 in N gauge.

 

hoping for a class 88 or class 73/9 in N but unlikely.

“Producing” is a relative term. They announced one years ago. Much like they announced a 92 and a Pendolino years ago! It doesn’t appear on any progress updates, there’s never been anything after an announcement. If it turns up in the next 5 years I’ll eat my hat. It would be  odd to announce one though, as that’s the one bit they have already done!

 

I’d love it to be an 88, doesn’t seem that unlikely. In both N and OO.

Oh yes, so they are. But it was announced all the way back in July 2012 AD so it’s understandable that I’d forgotten about it :scratchhead:

Or Copy Clever.   Didn't somebody once say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?

 

Devotees of Roald Dahl will recall that, after their controversial years in the confectionary industry, Messrs Slugworth, Fickelgruber and Prodnose went on to form Hornby's product research department.

What's the difference between an Announcement and a Pronouncement?

 

Pronouns can have gender and announs can't?
:jester:

I have to say chaps and chapesses, I am loving the banter in this thread. :drink_mini:

Perhaps they could announce the Mk3 Sleepers in N again but then announce that they are being delayed to allow the fitting of small speakers in each berth so that DCC snoring sounds can be played?

 

Daft?  They have delayed the OO Class 59 for an idiotic smoke generator gimick so I would not put it past them...

It was Illyshin, about the VC10.

 

separately aiui a senior person with Air Frances concorde program was outed as a Russian spy because various docs were substituted and handed to separate individuals, in this case I read the formula for tyres was substituted with a chemical formula for bubble gum.. subsequently detected in transmission to Russia and outed the individual.

 

Who knows there *might* be even be a little smoke and mirrors going on in our little hobby right now too.

Perhaps its a re-announcement of the re-announcement of the announcement of the N Gauge Bulleid Pacific :pardon_mini:

Perhaps they'll re-announce the J72 in N gauge which they previously announced, but cancelled when GF announced theirs, which they then cancelled…

Please no as it wont have a DCC socket.

By the same logic it could be a 37 or 47 ;)

 

.... I just hope it’s not news of further delays.

That was last week's announcement of an announcement.

 

This is a different announcement of an announcement.....

 

I was surprised not to have read here about the L&SWR B4 models scheduled on the Tower Models website here, but perhaps interest in the Southern and its predecessors and successors has waned. 

 

Perhaps they are bringing out a 7mm Glasgow and South Western Railway Baltic class. 

 

Now that would be an Anoooncemunt!
