My GF HST is OK.  The look isn't quite right on the headlights.  Running is pretty good at speed, but quite noisy.  Slow speed isn't too bad.

The look was improved greatly by a set of FGW vinyl sides from Electra Railway Graphics.

Despite the vinyls I am planning to get a Dapol when it comes out.

I actually own 3 full sets of this loco.

I have intercity Swallow, Midland Mainline Stag and Midland Mainline blue livery.

I like these versions although old compared to Dapol release and without lighting etc.
I don't think I would sell them for a Dapol version as I don't think Dapol will ever release a HST set in Midland Mainline livery, as this wasn't a popular livery in real life and I know that the Farish ones didn't sell that many unfortunately.

What Iam considering is installing my own LED lighting and close coupling the MK3 coaches.
Has anybody done this already please? Be interested to hear your tips/advice.

Iam on DC operation with all my loco's BTW.

I'm in the process of putting a tutorial together for DIY Dapol coach lighting but I've got a bit side tracked with the release of the Dapol pannier, hope to get back on it next week.  :)

Anyone know which of the Farish HSTs have the circuit board which is designed for a decoder to be soldered to it? I have the last one they did - the Crosscountry one - and that does. Not sure how many previous ones did.

Thanks

Hey team. I'm doing a bit of a stock take and noticed the coach supplied with my IC swallow set (371-479)has buffers. Is this correct? My Dapol BR blue 125 doesn't?

Farish Mk3s all have buffers, but this is wrong for HSTs - the real ones don't have buffers, and Dapol correctly don't include them on their HST Mk3 trailers.

Loco-hauled Mk3s (i.e. Mk3a and Mk3b) do have buffers.

There aren't any correct Farish Mk3s for HSTs. If you want them to be correct, just cut the buffers off with a scalpel!

They can actually be separated, but then there's no steps! I have a class 87 in swallow  livery and a 47 in the same so will leave them as a loco hauled set. Does leave me with homeless 43s for now.

Are the numbers right? HST trailers are numbered in the 4xxxx range, loco-hauled are in the 1xxxx range. Farish MK3s had buffers on everything, whichever they were supposed to be.

Hi Mickster04,

On my Farish coaches the buffers were of the snap in variety, so you should just be able to unclip them.

cheers

The moulding includes the door steps, so just remove the buffers
