Dapol shares video of Hawthorn Leslie 0-4-0 production samples in action

07 June 2024
Expected to arrive in the UK by the end of this month, Dapol has shared new footage of the production samples in action.

The new Dapol model is based on the 0-4-0 saddle tanks built between 1899 and 1924. They were produced in large numbers and continued in a variety of industrial uses (included Iron works, collieries and power stations) until the early to mid 1970’s. Over 10 locomotives have made it into various states of preservation.

Available to preorder now, the new model is priced at £126.36 DCC-Ready, £164.16 DCC-Fitted and £266.36 DCC Sound.
