OO Gauge GWR 4-6-0 'Manor' Steam locomotive Production Samples

OO Gauge GWR 7800 'Manor' 4-6-0 Production Samples

Dapol is delighted to be able to share images of the latest production samples of the GWR 7800 'Manor' locomotive


The GWR Manor was a versatile 4-6-0 configured locomotive designed with a lighter axle loading than the existing and popular Grange class which enabled the Manor to operate in regions of the GWR where this was not possible with a locomotive of  comparable power. In all, 30 Manor class locomotives were manufactured at Swindon in two batches: 20 between 1938 and 1939 and then a further 10 post nationalisation in 1950 which were designated 5MT. Although initially the performance of the locomotive was deemed at best mediocre, subtle internal refinements made towards the mid 1950s resulted in a successful and popular locomotive. In all nine examples of the Manor survived into preservation. .


General Specification Many original GA drawings were used in the development of these accurate and authentic models.   

Building on the many developments from the Dapol Mogul including Dapol's award winning slide in PCB in the boiler for tool free DCC fitting and sugar cube speaker enclosure (for sound models) and conductive drawbar providing tender wheel pick-up and connections for high bass speaker.  

 The locomotive will have all of the usual refinements that are expected to be found on all Dapol models including: 

  • A diecast compensated chassis 
  • Detailed cab interior with screw reverse
  • The front pony truck is also sprung and operates on a cam so the model will negotiate R2 curves with ease.   

Technical Specification  

  • A slide in PCB offers simple ‘tool-free’ installation of a NEXT-18 DCC decoder and a ’no-solder’ speaker connection. This board slides through the smoke box door and connects directly to the locomotive mother board.
  • The tender to locomotive drawbar includes reliable electrical connections moulded within the close-coupling push-fit coupling. This eliminates wired plugs and unreliable wiper style connections.
  • The locomotive and tender have electrical pick-up on all driving and tender wheels
  • An optional base reflex speaker can be fitted into the tender
  • Firebox glow (synchronised with sound*) 
  • Dapol’s proven slow speed mechanism and high torque motor 
  • Enhance your driving experience with our feature RealDrive*   

* Available on factory installed sound fitted models
