Over the past eight years Lionheart Trains has been manufacturing high quality authentic models for the 0 gauge enthusiast such as the latest Air ministry tank wagons.
These have been very successful and are now in the process of a further production run under the Dapol label, with a couple of new class 'A' decorations and new numbers of the most popular types including the class 'B' versions.
As stated elsewhere the Great Western Pannier tanks of the 64xx and 74xx class together with the Autocoach will be made again next year under the Dapol label.
The Great Western 'B' set coaches including the London 'A' sets and the Birmingham 'D' sets are at the final sampling stage, however production has not yet started so availability will now be early 2017 and again will be released under the Dapol label.
Lionheart Trains still has for sale a small quantity of the 43xx mogul locomotives, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for availability of remaining models.
LionheartTrains will now be specialising in producing high quality hybrid metal locomotives at a more affordable price.
These models will consist of fully assembled soldered brass bodies mounted on a diecast metal chassis and up to the usual high standard customers are used to.
The first model will be the Great Western small Prairie 45xx and 4575 class locomotives which is planned to be available the third quarter 2017, This will be followed by the British Railways 2-6-2 3MT tank locomotive.
A new website is being developed where further details will be available. In the mean time please visit the Dapol website via www.dapol.co.uk.
