Mine arrived today, and they look exquisite, the colours are also pretty close when placed next to Dapol's Gresley coaches. anyone care to lay a bet on how long it will be before Farish bring out other Thompson coaches?
I would like to thank the NGS shop staff for the quick rely to my order. well done folks

Regards,

Alex

Receaved mine the other day, what I have seen, I have been impressed so far, red & cream and teak. To be honest not had time to give them a right good look over or had them out of the box yet ! it has well been worth the wait.

There are still a number of pre-orders to be claimed, but the Thompson brakes will be available to buy from the Shop around the end of this week (i.e. early December).

The most popular livery is the Lined Maroon, so if you haven't claimed your pre-order yet and it includes one of these, don’t leave it too long!  In the event that we are ultimately unable to satisfy a pre-order, the member concerned will be offered a choice of an alternative available livery or a refund of his deposit.

Place your order on the Shop/membership website at www.ngsjoin.com or pay your pre-order balance at the same site using the ‘Sundry payment’ option.

My crimson one looks superb.  It will run on the club layout on Thursday evening.  In a mixed Gresley, Thompson, Mk 1 rake with a B12/1 in LNER Green with "BRITISH RAILWAYS" on the tender pulling.  The loco being a BHE kit.  The loco appearing as I understand Kittybrewster shed turned a handful of theirs out in the late 40s.

The crimson version of the Collett Brake comes in an odd shade that looks more like engineers red. Can anyone comment on the accuracy of the Thompson brake crimson livery please?

It looks to be more of a match for the Gresley coaches ex Dapol, which I would term 'plum & custard' as opposed to the brighter 'scarlet' which appears on other coaches (see the Farish coaches in the pic below)

Just had a look to make a comparison, the only c & c GF coaches seem to match pretty well with the NGS Thompson brake, can't say the same for the Dapol models as I don't have any to compare with, except that the old mintrix models do, in teak, and they are the same size and shape as the Dapol teak's.

But both of those are wrong Mick...  :doh:

On some early Chinese made coaches, they used the same shade for 'crimson' as 'maroon' (Left)
On late Poole made Mk1s the paint was so thin as to be translucent, so with any back-lighting appears much lighter than it should be... (right)
