N Gauge modellers meeting at the AGM of the N Gauge Society on 28th May 2005 were treated to a special viewing by Dapol of the latest pre-production prototype model of the Class 66 loco. This is becoming an increasingly popular class of loco across Europe among modern outline OO and HO modellers as a result of the numbers now seen handling freight on national railway networks. This is very largely due to the economic running costs associated with this GM designed loco which is making it popular with fleet operators.
When released this model will be a sure fire winner among N gauge modellers and the production model will feature front white lights and red rear lights. They will change depending on direction of travel. A switch will give day or night settings.
