It needs 3 decoders

Mine doesn't. It's not necessary, but even three still doesn't add up to 164.

Both of mine need three. One for the motor in the pantograph coach and then two for the lights at either end.

H. Be interested to understand the set up on yours. The only way I could see that working would be running two sets in multiple with the two inner cab end car lights isolated by removing the blanking plug.

Penketh Model Centre was selling them for 90 - 100 at the Blackburn show last year.  They haven't finished updating their new website yet I don't think so it might be worth giving them a ring.

I would stick a pair of the cheap Bachmann decoders in the end cars and your normal decoder of choice in the motor bogie.

Should be possible to do all that for less than 164.

Cheers, Mike

If cost was an issue I would imagine you could run a 350 on just one chip in the motor car and isolate the lights in the ends cars. That would keep the price down quite significantly and give time to save up for more decoders.

For those looking to bring their Class 350 right up to date, I'm happy to say that the TransPennine livery is now with the printers and will be available for sale from the end of this month. Not sure yet if I will have stock in time for DEMU Showcase,as the chap who does the printing is off until after Whitsun.

Here's a sneak preview...

Rails have these at 89.50...

So if anyone's still after a 'Desiro' unit or two, now's the time!

They are excellent models, and I'm very pleased with my 350/1 in London Midland livery, especially as I get to ride this specific unit, 350 101, every once in a while!

Cheers, NeMo

Oh god I've already got two 8-car units. I don't need a 5th one.

One thing I've done with mine is to replace the standard Arnold Rapido couplings with Dapol dummy knuckle couplings. Holds the whole thing together a bit closer and looks more realistic.

Totally agree with that, the cavernous gaps between the coaches do let a very nice model down. Needing 3 decoders is a pain, although if you're happy to run as an 8-car all the time then you only need 4 between two units, which is better.

Been thinking about getting another one of these for a while... Now I don't need to think about it anymore.

Given how slowly these units have sold, might be a while before we see them in the new 'Project 110' livery that suits them extremely well!

It's quite curious. The cab ends are the standard London Midland livery, but then it blends into a darker, almost charcoal grey livery with subtle go-faster stripes, so that the middle carriages are entirely this new darker grey livery. Is this supposed to mean LM are giving a sneak preview of a new livery? Old livery on the driving coaches, new livery on the trailers?

Cheers, NeMo

I wonder how many Desiros is too many...not entirely sure how many I have (though one might have ended up in China).
