Not really but what a great suggestion!

geberalky tops is later and we have them sortable by era classifications too 

 

So if I sort new to old on the website, it's the models rather than the prototypes, that I'm sorting?

Are all of the TOPS ones the same sort of age?

Correct. You’d be sorting new products to older. On the left hand side there are broad eras and each model should list some details about when modeled

I'm guessing that the plated-over headcode models are the newer ones?

Yes. Headcodes went about 5 years after TOPs came in. BR was fairly simple in terms of its livery range during the Deltics’ lifespan - green then blue; the ‘regional’ and ‘sector’ liveries such as NSE came later.

AFAIK TOPs came c1971, five years after BR Blue came in, so you can find blue locos with preTOPs numbers. The only big livery variant among the class as a whole, I think, was that locos allocated to Finsbury Park after 1979 had white cabs. There are doubtless subtle variations I have missed - and such fittings as train heating will indicate if a loco is modelled as being preserved and in a retro livery, rather than being presented as in built condition. 

When I travelled the ECML from 89-93, you could still see the old Deltic depot at FP, abandoned and growing full of weeds.

So, after a total journey of 30,000 miles since their birth, my two Deltics d9006 and 55003 have arrived here in rural Tasmania, without a SINGLE detail part loose or missing (I know I have been extremely lucky given the level of small detailed parts).  The locos are breathtaking and sound is amazing.  Thank you so much lads at Accurascale/IRM for an amazing product.

i knew after buying a pile of A’ s this would be a special product and it sure is. Role on more from you……..

Did you guys ever look at adding a prototype "Age" sort option as well as the new vs. old model?

Did the remaining Deltics ever clear in the Irish warehouse?
