I was assuming that at that price it not only had lighting but a buffet trolley that trundled to and fro and a ticket collector struggling to get past the trolley.

I would hope we'll see lighting in the Mk2 DBSOs, the pre-order prices weren't cheap to start off with and they as near as dammit just doubled.

Yes, definitely head/tail lights in the DBSOs, they're no different to a DVT in that respect. Was thinking more about the intermediate coaches with lighting provision.

The OO gauge ones look great - video here showing the effects. Won't post it inline as it's OO! The tail lamp looks great, be good to get that in N, Revolution are proving it can be done after all!

I am a sucker for push-pull trains so will need to have a DBSO. Some basic lighting functions would suffice, but with the new higher price would be happy with whatever they can squeeze on top of that.

I have to say I'm not a fan of Dapol's lighting bars, the white is too cold, the yellow is too yellow, and they're both far too bright. They need to do a warm white that's half the brightness, more like those Bachmann ones.

Still, we've no reason to think there's going to be fitted lighting to the mk2s, provision would make sense, but we've not seen it in their Mk1s or any other coach or MU yet, so I'm doubtful, even if it would go some way to justifying the price rise.

Quite a lot to like in there for me.

The green 31 with Next 18 and speaker fitted - easy sound install. Even if the particular loco D5616 was assigned to the ER not WR...
Three car 108 with DCC sound fitted - yes please!
The maroon Hawksworths - will definitely be interested in those, but would like some additional blood & custard ones to complete a full rake. Four isn't enough...
The chocolate & cream mark ones - can never have too many of those!
A few of the usual wagon suspects....
Can't quite get myself across the line with the ex Midland Blue Pullman in grey / blue...tempting though...
The green class 47 - tempting... haven't got any of those. Yet....

Could be an expensive year....
Still planning a layout...

Nothing for me I'm afraid, no FGW/GWR 158 or Mk3 sleepers. For some reason they are producing a Class 57 GWR which is a waste of time with no coaches to go with it. They did the same when they produced the FGW version, the only good side to that was they did not sell very well and I got one brand new from a box shifter for £55. If the same thing happens again I will buy one, if not my money is going on the Dapol DRS 68 and GWR HST.

Fair point. I actually think they'd have been better to do 57604 in the GWR lined livery - that would have had a longer time-frame (it's had that livery through both the FGW blue and current GW green livery phases, and has recently been repainted retaining the same livery), plus it would have been of interest to some (me included) as it's a nice livery. As for the standard, GW green, don't think I'll bother.

They do have all the artwork for 57604 as it's been done in OO gauge.

£42.95 for a coach !!!!!! Thatís way above my spend on my railway that will feed us three for a week ,I did sell some things and managed to buy two Farish Auto coaches at a bargain price , but that price is now the end of new products for me ,and I should imagine will stop lots of people starting up in the hobby.

Yes £42.95 is steep but remember, that is for the DBSO which is a special case. You only got 1 per train meaning most modellers will only buy 1 or 2. This makes it harder to spread the cost of the tooling across a large number of coaches sold.

If you look at the Hawksworths, they are coming for a slightly less eye-watering price of £37 which will come down £31 once the usual 15% retailer discount is applied.

Pricey, I agree but with Sterling continuing to drift downwards, I don't see prices going anywhere but up for the next few years.
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Plus it's got lights, decoder socket etc, it's basically a dummy locomotive.

That's not what's being released this month though, that's just the mk2 BSO which is £35 at retail.

:o

In that case, I retract my previous statement, that is a lot for one coach that would normally be run in a rake!

A somewhat strange comment in RM about the class 66 5 door version Evening Star is "GF seems not to have been able to print the nameplates themselves to its satisfaction"

The maroon Hawksworths look nice enough to eat but I must keep some money back for the forthcoming Thompsons :(

I admit I've not got RM, so maybe it's changed, but all the retailers are listing the RRP of the Mk2 BSO as £34.95. The DBSO is £44.95, but that's not coming out yet.

Yes, £35 is still a lot, but as you say, it'll be c£30 from all the major retailers anyway. Farish certainly seem to be pushing prices a lot further than Dapol - who are still doing mk3s for £22ish, with fully detailed interiors, lighting provision etc, although I accept things like underframe mouldings are more simple.
