Dapol 122 in O Gauge

Just a quick write up after the arrival of my Class 122. I tested the unit as soon as it arrived and it was a good runner albeit a bit speedy! The next job was to add all the extra detailing that is provided, the buffer beam detailing is excellent and fitted well after just reaming the holes slightly. The battery boxes were added each side and the methodology behind Dapol’s way of doing this is great, remember to push fit only, they are a tight fit. I then fitted the speedo cable, gluing the bogie end to the bogie, but leaving the chassis end unglued to allow movement by the bogie. Lastly I added the transfers, I choose ‘excursion’ both ends. The transfers are excellent quality and look great, just be careful cutting them out.

Overall this unit is great value for money and could/should help people that like smaller O gauge layouts.

A light weathering later.
