I understand that there are two more 7mm locos in the planning stage (both steam) and in fact a posting on RMweb a few weeks ago indicated that Tower Models had announced the details too soon and Dapol asked them to remove it from the web site.

I see that the announcements were made at the Alexandria Palace show and I wonder if samples of the new stock were on display to see. I was at the Warley show last November when Dapol announced the three different open wagons and they had pre-production samples on display. Photos of the different wagons are now available on the Dapol web site.

Just got back from Ally Pally, looked in at the Dapol stand. The new RTR PO wagons
look good [and at £40 ish, good value], but only a printed sheet on the 08.
Mind you the specs. look good; 5 pole motor, DCC ready, sound available, extra weight
for good traction, low ratio gearbox, seperate metal handrails & details, etc.
RRP £199.95, even at full retail it's good value.
