Dapol A4 accessories help

Postby Stewart_D » Thu Jul 17, 2014 1:58 am

Hi everyone,

I just received my Dapol A4 Pacific. It came with a few bags of
extra bits. I think I have worked out what they all are except for
the two small rectangular blue plates.
As we say in Australia Please Explain.
I tried dapol but no reply.
Thanks all

Stew

Maybe A picture will help.
I couldn't get a photo as they are so small the auto focus would not work.
They came in the accessory bag with extra couplers and other detail bits.

Any ideas on what they are ?

Thanks

Well if anybody is interested I came accross the answer while researching spare dapol parts.

They are the Cab Doors.

I thought they might have been some sort of running board to go on the front of the train :oops:

I have a Hornby super-detailed A4 Mallard and these 'cab doors' keep falling off as they clip the tender on tight curves.
Dapol A4 - there should be a couple of 'guides' on the inside of the loco cab to locate the tabs.
