Dapol has un­veiled four new items of rolling stock in three dif­fer­ent scales. New in ‘O’ are the ‘Bo­gie Bol­ster E’ and the YCV ‘Tur­bot’. BR built 1,200 ‘Bol­ster Es’ be­tween 1961/62 and their bo­gies gave them a higher pay­load than their four-wheel con­tem­po­raries. With the de­cline in their reg­u­lar traf­fic, BR fit­ted hun­dreds of ‘Bo­gie Bol­ster Es’ with drop­side bodies in the early 1980s for bal­last and spoil du­ties. These re­built wag­ons be­came ‘Tur­bots’ (YCV on TOPS). Dapol prom­ises that both new mod­els will sport such fea­tures as pos­able bol­sters and stan­chions, sep­a­rate coun­ter­bal­ance springs and door arms and work­ing In­stan­ter cou­plings, as well as pin-point axles, me­tal wheels and sprung buf­fers. Hav­ing hinted at a ‘OO’ gauge ‘Bo­gie Bol­ster E’ at the 2017 War­ley Na­tional Model Rail­way Show, Dapol has now con­firmed prices and guises for its new model. This model will also fea­ture an im­pres­sive spec list, in­clud­ing work­ing In­stan­ter cou­plings. Last but not least is a new vari­ant to its ex­ten­sive range of ‘N’ gauge Mk 3 coaches: the sleeper. The new coach should match the high stan­dards set by the rest of the Mk 3 range and will be launched in five liver­ies.
