Dapol Class 73 Electro-Diesel OO Gauge
* * * This project was cancelled by Dapol on 8th November 2013 and this page remains for archive purposes only * * *
We are pleased to announce our limited edition versions of the Class 73 Electro-Diesel model from Dapol.
Our first model will be of 73 212 in Network Rail Livery. Each model is limited to just 250 pieces and will come with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
The Dapol Class 73 promises to be an excellent model with the same development process as the Western, which many people collaborated upon to ensure the model is as accurate as possible.
The price of this model will be £135.00 each, although anyone who places a pre-order will be able to purchase for £125.00 but no money is taken until we are ready to send the models in accordance with our standard pre-order policy.

Weathered Class 73 OO Gauge
We are pleased to announce exclusive weathered editions of the forthcoming Dapol Class 73 Electro-Diesel in OO Gauge. The selection of liveries has been made following a survey run in conjunction with RMweb, the results of which indicate that at least two of the models should sell out before release if everyone who voted places a pre-order! The weathering will be to the usual high standard applied by Dapol on our behalf and will be appropriate to the livery, generally being confined to the chassis and roof areas as per the prototype.
The price will be £149.99 for each model and will be supplied post free to UK addresses. The price will be reduced to £139.99 for pre-orders placed prior to the first model arriving into stock and no monies are charged until we are ready to despatch the models. We expect the models to be available during 2013 around the same time as the standard Dapol Class 73 is released. The models will be DCC ready.
The models planned will be: -
K2801 Dapol Class 73 Electro-Diesel Locomotive number E6041 in BR Blue livery with small yellow panels and weathered finish £149.99 (£139.99 for pre-orders)
K2802 Dapol Class 73 Electro-Diesel Locomotive number 73 129 named "City of Winchester" in Network SouthEast livery with weathered finish £149.99 (£139.99 for pre-orders)
