    Recent issues of the Scaleseven Newsletter have described the method by which Rob Thompson (@S7BcSR) and I have converted Dapol RTR to S7 by using replacement axles that Slaters produces to our order. Details of the price and availability of the replacement axles can be found in the "Small Ads" section of WT, here.

    For the moment, these axles are available only from Rob and/or I, the axles are not available from the S7 Stores. If this arrangement changes then I shall provide details here and in the S7 Newsletter.

    regards, Graham

    Is this for wagon or is also for locos?

    Our replacement axles are only for wagons / coaches and allow people to fit Slater's S7 wagon wheels to Dapol RTR.

    To improve the service for members of the S7 Group Rob Thompson and I have agreed with Paul Stokes (S7 Stores Manager) that the replacement axles for recent Dapol RTR releases shall be available from the S7 Stores. Transfer of existing stocks between myself and the Stores has taken place so S7 modellers visiting Telford can purchase the replacement axles from the S7 Group Stand.

    That’s great. Is the lion heart autocoach one of those that are swappable?

    Yes, I have done two so far... just remember that you need twice as many axles as for a wagon!
