Product Description

Expected Delivery Q3 2024 (Subject to change at Manufacturer's Discretion)

The Dapol Class 87 features:

  • Finely detailed body & roof with many extra fitted items
  • 5 pole Super Creep motor with incredible controllable slow running speed
  • All wheel drive and pick up
  • Finely detailed (posable/non functional) High-Speed and Cross-Arm pantographs (as appropriate)
  • Accessory bag with optional fitted parts

The tooling will allow the 87 to be accurately modelled from the original 1973 condition to the present day with different front end and roof variants.
A new roof has is being tooled to accurately portray the much loved and unique 87101 for the first time in N gauge.

36 Class 87 locomotives were introduced from 1973 to work the newly electrified northern section of the West Coast Mainline to Glasgow. These locomotives were based on the successful Class 86 design, featuring a modernised design and capable of generating 5000HP. The final loco in the build was revised to test new thyristor controls and was numbered 87101.


With new Mark 3 coaches, the 87s became known as the Electric Scots and significantly reduced journey times between Euston and Glasgow. The 87s provided front-line service with British Rail and latterly Virgin Trains until 2005, when replaced by Pendolino EMUs, with many locos transferring to other operators or being exported abroad.


Dapol would like to thank the 87035 Group at Crewe Heritage Centre for their invaluable help giving access to their loco.
