OO Gauge Autocoach

OO Gauge Autocoach - First Shot Evaluation

Dapol is delighted to be able to share images of it's Autocoach first shots


Our model is based on the six coaches numbered 36 to 41 constructed during 1907 under Lot 1126 to Diagram ‘N ’. All were built new as driving trailers and not later conversions from old steam rail motors. They were used on branch lines from Cornwall to Wales and retained their gas lighting until withdrawn, the first in 1956, the last in November 1957. Number 38 is preserved on the Telford Steam Railway

Project Update

We have received the first shots that have been hand assembled and the design team have been busy reviewing them and providing feedback to the factory.

The following improvements have been found thus far:

  • Roof fit - profile of the roof and end walls of the coach.
  • Area below axle box to be cored out.
  • On the driving end the gong on some versions will not be fitted and the tooling will be modified to accommodate this.
  • Auto driving gear accessory being modified to be a single piece addition to the model should the modeler wish to fit it.

Artworks are currently underway and we look forward to bringing you news of these in a later update in the near future.
