Dapol have announced new production runs in N Gauge of Britannia pacific steam locomotives and Class 27 and Class 35 diesel locomotives.

The Britannia 4-6-2 pacifics designed by Robert Riddles, fifty five were built at Crew Works between 1951 and 1955. Two survive into preservation, 70000 Britannia and 70013 Oliver Cromwell, the later being the last steam engine to run a scheduled BR service in 1968.
The models feature: a die cast chassis with all wheel pick up and Dapol's super creep motor. Also included are etched nameplates. The tooling has been modified to give an impression of a coal pusher to give the correct tender type to the relevant models.

Five new versions are proposed, including a Bookset with four coaches:
2S-017-006 Britannia 70000 'Britannia' BR unlined black Early Emblem
2S-017-007 Britannia 70050 'Firth of Clyde' BR lined green Early Emblem
2S-017-008 Britannia 70051 'Firth of Forth' BR lined green Late Crest
2S-017-009 Britannia 70010 'Owen Glendower' BR unlined green Late Crest
2S-017-010 Britannia East Anglian Bookset 70039 Early Emblem and four Gresley Crimson & Cream coaches.

The Class 27 was a development of the earlier Class 26. In all 69 locomotives were built by Birmingham Railway Carriage & Wagon Company (BRCW) during 1961 and 1962. By 1969 the Class 27 was being used almost exclusively in Scotland. They were withdrawn from service in 1987 and eight survive into preservation.
The models feature etched grills, separately applied handrails, 5 pole super creep motor, all wheel drive and pick up and directional lights and headcode box lighting.
Eight new versions are proposed, including DCC Fitted versions:

The Class 35 was a mixed traffic Bo-Bo diesel hydraulic locomotive built for the Western Region of BR. The Class 35 coupled a Mekyrdo Hydraulic transmission with a diesel power unit and for this reason became affectionately known as Hymeks. One hundred and one were built between 1961 and 1964 by Bayer Peacock (Hymek) Ltd, a joint venture Company between Bristol Siddeley Engines (supplier of the Maybach engine used), Stone-Platt Industries (Supplier of the Mekydro Hydraulic transmission) and Bayer Peacock & Co (manufacturer of the locomotive). The Hymek continued into service until 1975 by which time their passenger and freight duties were replaced in the main by the more powerful Class 52 Western and the diesel-electric Class 37. Four Hymeks survive into preservation.
The models feature etched grills, separately applied handrails, 5 pole super creep motor, all wheel drive and pick up and directional lights and headcode box lighting.
Eight new versions are proposed, including DCC Fitted versions:
2D-018-011 Hymek D7000 Two Tone Green No Warning Panel
