If for any reason the locomotive cannot be repaired there will be an evaluation charge plus return postage.

Dapol Warranty Repairs

We are proud to be Dapol’s official service agent, and take great care when repairing any locomotive sent to us under Dapol’s warranty.

Loco’s repaired under Dapol’s warranty are entirely free, unless the warranty is void in which case our regular repair charges will apply. We reserve the right to charge for postal charges incurred. Examples of voided warranties are: Accidental cosmetic damage, attempted repairs, Gross over oiling etc. Modifications to the model which have contributed or caused the reported fault will also void the warranty.

In the event a locomotive is not repairable and is a ‘write off’, you will receive a voucher for the purchase price of the model to take to your retailer.

We also carry a wide range of Dapol spares, Click here for our full range.

Please note, if you cannot see the spare part you require, please give us a call.

We are constantly working with the Dapol factories to obtain spares, as and when production runs are made.

However, please be aware, for older models, we may not be able to acquire spares.
