Dapol has announced a newly tooled GWR 78xx Manor 4-6-0 for 00, following on from the GWR Mogul 2-6-0 and large Prairie 2-6-2T, which are currently under development.
The class of 30 locomotives was constructed in two batches; the first between 1938 - 1939, with a further 10 with after nationalisation.
The model will build on many of the developments from the Mogul project; including slide-in PCB (with provisions for sugar cube speaker), glowing firebox and push-fit electrical connection between the loco and tender, and more.
Currently seven versions have been announced, covering a plethora of pre-Grouping and post-nationalisation liveries, with each available in analogue, DCC Fitted & Factory Sound Fitted.
The proposed project is currently at the CAD Stage, with delivery expected arrival during 2021.
We hope to bring you more information and updates over the coming months.
