Hi all, I have a Dapol D-009 J94 in BR Black (68080) with 'Bunker Extension' written on the box end. In the polystyrene packaging are; 6 new wheels, 3 axles, 2 coupling rods, spur gear, bunker extension, cab rear backplate and what looks like another dome for the boiler/tank. Can anyone tell me why there are all these extra items in the packaging?? I have asked Dapol, but they don't have any info on the earlier Dapol models.
cheers,
Joe

Dapol produced an EM conversion kit for the J94 which would account for the wheels etc, the bunker extension is self explanatory and the cab backplate could be for that or, along with the dome, simply to allow other members of the class to be modelled. The terriers also were supplied by Dapol with numerous alternative bits although some would have required a complete repaint unless the factory finish could be well matched.

Just to add to Mike Parkes' correct answer to your question Tidzaboy,-the 'dome' was,IIRC, an alternative chimney,-of the conical type as fitted by Hunslet to the Austerities that had the underfeed stoker conversion..

Thanks 'Mike' and 'DS239' for your replies. I bought the J94 with the intentions to re-create a 'model' of Friden on the 'C&HPR' , but when i saw the extra parts, I chickened out at renumbering it 68012 or 68079, thinking it better to keep it original. I have since purchased a couple of unboxed J94's to do the renumbering to instead! Does it make it more collectable with these extra parts? Anyone looking for a EM J94?
