Any of you readers fancy a start in O gauge? A friend has for sale two of these Dapol 08’s, as new, unused. They were originally part of a plan for a small O gauge layout, and,as we all experience, plans sometimes have to change.
A few years back the same thing happened with me and I too had got an 08 for trials. There’s images on this page which show how these are put together. There’s plenty of space for adding DCC and sound, and Railway Modeller’s Callum Willcox has fitted the Hornby TTS 08 sound decoder into one for an economic conversion.
If these are of interest please get in touch, they’re priced at £165 each plus P&p, a deal might be available for the pair. Whilst clearing the man cave here these two OO locomotives below are still available from myself ;
The class 24 is as new, DC, £125 inc uk P&p
The Western is DC, and priced at £135 inc Uk p&p. Both of the locomotives have only been test run or used in photo shoots. Please contact me via the blog or the Albion yard Facebook page.
