Quote from: Steven.T on June 23, 2024, 02:05:30 PMA garter blue mallard is high on my want list but I don't really want the coaches, I could sell them after but it seems like a chew!
I could understand it if they offered the loco alone or as a "value pack" with the coaches
A garter blue Mallard has been done already just a few years ago (item 2S-008-008), so why didn't you buy it then or look at ebay for one? They are not that rare, the last one on ebay sold on June 2 for about £120.


I wasn't in the market for one when they released them a few years ago... And I don't really want to pay £120 for a second hand one with no warranty, when I could wait and get one for ~£150 (without coaches) which is brand new and has a warranty.
I'm not even bothered about it being Mallard, anything garter blue with valances would be fine really.
But to just limit one livery to an expensive coach pack seems a bit of an odd decision to me, especially when it's (I'd guess!) one of the more popular liveries...

@eddief83 Oh, thank you – I always thought that the plaques were fitted right after the record but it looks like you are right and they were fitted post-war (Wikipedia says in 1948, so already under BR).

No problem, I did think it was BR Days but wasn't certain. I do know that originally the LNER only claimed 125MPH as the 126MPH is a small section on the roll from the dynamometer car's recordings of the run
