Kernow had the separate brakes and the 3-set in BR(S) Green listed, but as pre-orders. I put an order in and I've just got an eMail to say they're on their way...

No sign of the Brake Compo listed - I'll drop them a line and see what's up there.

What's in the box?



Oooh!  :laugh3: :bounce:



The coaches in the set box have been moved and rotated to the correct formation. The brakes do indeed have the set number on the ends, as do the individual brakes...  :D

EDIT: The Brake Compo hasn't arrived at Kernow, so Hattons got an order for that one...

Drooling in anticipation of mine being shipped soon.
I think Hattons can be quite slow once they have your money.
You can expedite it by paying 7 though.

Hattons have the Maunsells listed in BR Souther Region Green, and others listed as BR Green. What's the difference in time frame?

Nothing. The livery is usually referred to as BR(S) Green, and covers the period 1956-68.

Thats what I thought, so it must just be a continuity error.

Thanks

The period is 1956 - 1962ish when the Maunsells were withdrawn.
Green continued on BR (S) until Blue and Blue/Grey replaced them in 1967.
Prior to that they were in BR Crimson/Cream from ca 1948 - give or take a year for repaints.

As I did not check before ordering, I hope that I have ordered the correct type of Maunsell brake composite (S6567S) for North Cornwall. I think they had more passenger accommodation than the type shown in the 3-set photo., above.

I also should have ordered two and just renumbered them! Especially as I have had the transfers made.

The Brake compos have 6 compartments, the inner two are first class. All the brakes in my photo above are the 4-cpt 2nd-class only ones for the 3-sets.

So if I was proposing to run a short local train somewhere in BR(S) (fictitious), would the set of 3 in your picture be suitable?

The Maunsell 3-sets started life on the mainline from Waterloo to the west of England. By the late 50s, increasing numbers of Mk1 stock were coming on stream and they were sent to the Sommerset and Dorset to see out their twilight years.

If you are looking for a local train you could use a set like this. Another option would be what the SR called a P-set which was a 6-comp Brake 3rd (the first version of the Brake that Dapol released) and a Brake Composite (which they have just now released). This was a typical west-country local set. The Dapol coaches are not 100% perfect for this as the P-sets were mostly formed of high-windowed stock whereas Dapol have released the low windowed version but they may be close enough for you.
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

The new sets would be, as would a set similarly made up of the previously released coaches. By the late 50s, the Restriction-4 Maunsells were very much country local, and peak-hour commuter use stock, although they were frequently found as strengtheners on express services when other more recent stock was unavailable.
