Specific Item Information: The British Rail Class 86 Bo-Bo electric locomotive was the first large scale standard electric locomotive brought into service and was developed from the earlier Class 81 to 85. One hundred locomotives were built by British Rail at Doncaster and English Electric at the Vulcan Works, Newton-le-Willows between 1965 and 1966 to operate a high speed passenger and freight service on the newly electrified West Coast Line. Some of the class were named after towns or counties that the lines they worked passed through. The class underwent some substantial modifications during its long life including suspension changes, power and speed upgrades and the ability to operate push pull services with Mk3 Driving Van Trailers. Post BR privatisation the fleet was divided amongst many operators including Anglia Railways, EWS, Freightliner, Virgin Cross Country and West Coast. Currently, Freightliner still has a small fleet of Class 86s along with Serco Caledonian Sleepers that have two in service and some in preservation. NEXT-18 Decoder

Brand/Importer Information:
Dapol Ltd is a Welsh model railway manufacturer based in Chirk, Wales. The factory where design and manufacturing take place is just over the border in England. The company is known for its model railway products in N gauge and OO gauge. Dapol's name is a play on its founders David and Pauline Boyle's names. He owned a model concern Highfield Birds & Models. In 1981 he first tried to buy the Airfix and Mainline ranges. The Dapol brand name was first used in a Railway Modeller advert of September 1983. The first Dapol wagons (for OO) were announced to become available on 20 November 1983. From 1 March 1984 ex Airfix railway kits became available.

Dapol manufactures a growing range of N gauge locomotives, coaches and wagons, and is the main competitor of Graham Farish in the British 'ready-to-run' market. Continuous improvement in model specifications has led to the introduction of 40:1 gearing in locomotive drive mechanisms, NEM couplings on all stock, and LED lighting strips for coaching stock (yellow for 'older' coaches, to represent incandescent illumination, and white for more modern coaches and EMUs to represent fluorescent fittings).
