    I have damaged - beyond repair, one of the very fragile nose ladders on my Dapol 08 and wondered if anyone was aware of a replacement etch on the market that I could obtain?

    regards

    Hi Mike
    I assume you know that DCC supplies do Dapol spares, although the ladders are currently out of stock you can pre -order.

    Class 08 O Ladder Black (pair)

    Cheers

    Hi John,

    that is good news and thank you for pointing it out. I had looked some time ago and they were not listed. I have emailed to notify me when they are back in stock - hopefully not too long now that the Chinese New Year is done and dusted!

    regards

    Mike

    Hi Mike

    I have done the same!

    I approached Dapol direct without success, so many thanks John, for your information.

    Best regards

    Hi Mike,
    I have no idea if they'll fit but I have these from an old Acorn 08 kit that are going spare if you're interested, despite my scan making it look grey it's a brass etch. PM your address if you want them and I'll pop them in the post, freebie!
    Sorry Mark but Mike did ask first.

    I can’t inagine Dapol make random new batches of spares one they have sold out.

    Worth an add in the wanted sections - surely someone will have picked up a second hand loco with unwanted ladders and removed them?
