Alan beat me to it, but I already have a rake of Ironclads on my wishlist for the future. I didn't expect to be able to fit one in between the new Maunsells though.

For Southern Railway usage it seems to be not unreasonable. The dining saloons all got turned into tool and mess vans by nationalisation however.

Right, who's got the best prices?

I notice that 4 coach pack has been added, comprising a BTK, TK and 2xFK - the numbering suggests that it is half of set 469, but as I am out at the moment, can't check...

I wonder if there is a typo on the 4-coach set numbers? I thought it was originally supposed to be BTK-CK-CK-BTK which sounds like a viable set. BTK-TK-FK-FK sounds very odd.  :uneasy:

Part of one of the city business 8 coach sets, specifically 470, 6comp brake 3rds 4050, 4051, 3rds 2354, 2355, firsts 7671-4

So you need the rest of the set & get renumbering! But see Talisman's post above, formation changed in 1933, only the 3rd brakes remaining and a compo added!

I think I'll go for a pair of 3rd brakes and a compo, see if I can do anything with the brakes to get somewhere near  4 compartment ones, I have some Worsley sides which I can probably persuade at least the brake ends to fit and the artwork for vinyls or transfers.

I vaguely remember Dapol mentioning that a 4-comp Brake 3rd and a Brake compo were also in the works. Might be worth hanging on and seeing what appears later on.

Mind you, if it is anything like the Mk3 TGS, you may decide you want the model before the end of the decade.   :dighole:

Bear in mind that the compo added in 1933 was a high-window CK...

The original set that Dapol quoted was a restriction 1 set, so couldn't be made out of the Restriction 4 coaches that were being produced...

Glad I don't model Southern - getting your train formations right seems like a minefield !

I assume the livery of these coaches is wrong for the Bulleid era ?

Best regards,


Joe

Yes, Bulleid introduced a lighter green officially called 'Malachite' (some people substitute the middle letter) - this livery was not lined.

I believe Dapol are planning to produce other liveries. BR(S) green has been mentioned but I am not sure about others.

The lined livery as a whole was phased out from the early 1930s. The earlier Grafar coaches without lined livery are idea for mid- to late 1930s use. It's almost a certainty that Maunsell green coaches were still around in Bulleid days, so you could get away with a rake, but they would probably need to be weathered (wartime restrictions and all that).

Rails have them now in stock but they didn't know of the 4 coach set Dapol list (2P-012-251).

The Liverpool store wasn't able to provide a shipping date for any of the coaches.

Looking forward to mine arriving but not totally sure of what I should haul them behind but I do have a UM T9, so that's what I'll do.  :)

Would a Merchant Navy (part of an Atlantic Coast set) have pulled Maunsells and I'd prefer light bar ready coaches behind mine if possible.

Yes, MNs were introduced during WW2 whereas Bulleid coaches were not introduced until just before nationalisation. During most of the 40s, MNs would have hauled maunsell and older stock.
