Dapol's Expected Release - Q1/Q2 2022

Dapol has announced the second production run of the extremely popular GWR 43xx 2-6-0 Mogul at the World of Railways 2021 Virtual show. The original production run, released in 2020, featured locomotives with numbers starting 63xx and 73xx. The tooling suite is being expanded to allow us to increase the range of prototype models and their associated liveries that we can portray, locomotives with numbers starting from 4321 up to 5383 inclusive can now be accurately modelled. These models will include several developments to improve on what was already a fantastic model which we will discuss in more detail below.

The tooling package for the original batch of Moguls was from its very inception designed to allow us to produce the other versions of the prototype. The model incorporates many of the features and benefits from the first batch of OO Gauge Moguls. As well as Dapol’s, customary, excellent aesthetics the model will feature Dapol’s award winning slide out PCB and the tried and tested easy connect, wire free, tender to locomotive electrical draw bar. The inclusion of these two features makes converting your model to DCC or DCC and sound very easy indeed.

Many original GA drawings were used in the development of these accurate and authentic models. The locomotive will have all of the usual refinements that are expected to be found on all Dapol models.
