'Dapol Nthusiasts Club'
Dapol have announced the formation of their 'Dapol Nthusiasts Club' which will be launched on the 1st February this year. Based on an annual subscription with benefits to everyone who models in 'N'.
'Class 221 Super Voyager'
Following the success of the recent 'Class 220 Voyager' model Dapol have decided to now push-ahead with the 'Class 221 Super Voyager'.
The models will be supplied as a pro-typical 5-car set and, as the modification to the bogies are currently under production, we hope to have a pre-production model available for examination at the N Gauge Society 40th Anniversary Show in September. If all goes according to plan, the first release of sets should be available by Christmas this year. No news on price.
