I have a terrier somewhere new in a box. It was a surprise Christmas or birthday present about 10 years ago. It is in B.R. black.

Terriers - love 'em. Currently have 3 in OO gauge (all converted to DCC) and a couple of Dapol ones in N. Probably won't be the last I buy either

Oh that is pretty. I must admit that I do like these gaily painted examples rather than the dull BR black ones. I recently got an N gauge terrier off Brian just because I liked it so much. So now my next major project will be a separate N gauge layout built around it.

I must admit that even the black one isn't dull with its beautiful lining.
Going back to the days when Dapol first made them, there used to be a small shop near me that sold a few model railway items, though at the rrp price so it wasn't cheap. Dapol had released the terrier in GWR colours after a few previous liveries had been made. The shopkeeper told me that it was a limited edition and Dapol were going to destroy all the molds after the GWR production run was finished. It was 46 back then which was a simiar price to the Dapol castle, so today I should imagine its price would equate to around 150-170? I never bought it at that price as I could buy elsewhere older liveries for 34 if I wanted one, and that was over double the price of the competition of Mainline, Airfix, Lima and Hornby, though Mainline were ceasing production and Airfix were old stock by then. II bought a Mainline GWR large prairie back then for 12.50.
Well Dapol didn't destroy the molds and they are still with us today around 25 years later now being in the Hornby range of products.
It was a nice surprise to be given one 15 years later!

I have to confess to having 16 Terriers, 10 in 00, 5 in N and one in 0. In mitigation I have been collecting them for years. I blame it on the fact that I lived on Hayling Island as a child.

Haha. Some of you are terrier mad. Buy any more and you'll need to open a kennel!

Checkout this marvelous archive footage from 1963. An ex-LB&SCR 'Terrier' crosses Langstone Harbour on its way to Hayling Island from the main junction at Havant. The Station at Havant and Hayling Island are wonderfully depicted. If you've got a Terrier and a couple of SR coaches, you've got all you need for a nostalgic steam era layout!
