The BR(S) Green BCKs are available, I have one... and a certain Liverpool Widnes retailer currently has 9 in stock.

There should be BCKs with the Crimson/Cream ones, too.

The relevant Cat. nos are 2P-012-375 (BR(S) Green); 2P-012-675 (C/C); and 2P-012-075 (SR Lined Olive)

The SR Olive ones should be available next month (July).

I have had my Maunsell brake composite S6567S in BR green 2P-012-375 since May but I do not have a Maunsell brake composite S6574 2P-012-675 (Crimson & Cream), yet, although Hattons do have them in stock.

Still lacking are the open 3rd, restaurant and push pull driving brake compo, (the open 3rd was also used in the push pul set)

I've started a "conversation" on Shapeways initially aimed at the person behind the Mk3 SLEPs and quite a few other N gauge stock including some DMUs etc.

Might help if a bit more support for the open 3rd, retaurant and push pull sets  gets added to the "conversation" at -

Me, too. But I'd definitely like a BR / Maunsell Restaurant / Buffet Car, and a BR / Maunsell pull-push driving brake composite plus Open 3rd pull-push set. A "Gate" stock two-coach pull-push set would be very nice, too.

I'm logged into Shapeways - when I click on the Link it says it can't find the conversation. I've searched Shapeways in every shape and form and nowhere can I find any futher login to anything called 'Conversations'...

Can't understand that, I did try searching for "Conversations" and also Maunsell Coaches, nowt, but when I use the lnk K posted it comes straight up. One thing I did find was a Gate stock push pull driving coach

https://www.shapeways.com/product/YYKEFHRE7/o-148-lswr-d136-pushpull-coach-1-air?optionId=63859741


I see that the same person has quite a lot of N gauge items, including the W class tank and Drummond F9 which I now have. Methinks I'll make a request for the Maunsell's if the other one I started the conversation with does  not reply soon

That Gate stock coach looks really good.

Have Shapeways changed their terminology? I presume the 'White Natural Versatile Plastic' is what used to be referred to as 'FUD'?

That's Simon Dawson. I've been mentioning his work for a while now. I already have his SECR 6-wheel brake van, fully painted and lettered.



He's been working on some pre-Grouping panelled coaching stock recently (see the thread on the 'other' forum).

I may be interested in the pre-grouping panelled stock - but which is the 'other forum' ? (any link?).

I belong to a few forums so get confused when one forum refers to another as 'the other' ... there's more than one other out there  :confused1:

Sorry!  :goggleeyes: and thanks  :)

With the NGS AGM coming up I recall attending an N gauge society AGM around 2002 or 2003 when George Smith of Dapol promised Maunsell coaches for N gauge (among other things) he did say it was unlikely that there would be any restaurant/catering cars. I also bought a 14xx and hacked an ABS Drummond Highland 0-6-4T into an M7, still got it, the white metal body certainly improves the pulling ability;  typically the Dapol M7 arrived soon after, perhaps we should have built some Maunsell coach kits about the same time?
