Hi Folks,

What an exciting announcement. As a matter of interest, is the only difference between the packs the running numbers?

Kind regards

Nice to see something different and i am tempted but i think there is a shortage of "normal" stuff, like mk1 coaches, Maroon Thompson's etc

Though I don't need any (well, maybe a Thompson or three) I agree, but surely the ball is in Farish's court for them, not Sonic?

I may be missing something but I don't see the connection between Sonics announcement and Farish's production schedules... Just to clarify are you suggesting that Sonic should not produce these until/unless Farish produce more Mk1s, Thompson's etc in specific liveries?? or are you suggesting Sonic should instead put their investment into duplicating the Farish tooling to produce models in the liveries Farish are yet to deliver?

Hi Paddy;

No, the numbers are not the only difference.

There are differences in the roof lights, and ETH fittings, which have been allowed for by Sonic and included in the models.

The next bit is from Sonic;

quote;

The main one is the roof lights.

The first few were built with windows to the RHS of each panel. Thereafter they were located in the centre of the panel.

The other detail is some have ETH connectors on the end, Blue Grey livery.

If you scroll through the liveries posted by Rails you can see the differences.
Six different packs of three are posted on their website.

1. look at the first carrier in each pack with the exception of pack 5.

You will see that the first one in each pack the roof light is to the RHS edge of each panel.

The other two models the roof light is in the centre. Clearly shown on Rails website.






2. Pack 5. If you look at the ends you can see an orange shape on the RHS of the end on




End quote.

To me personally, they seem amazing detail differences for an N gauge model.

No it was just a generalisation about the lack of "basics", but after the announcement toady regarding the Farish Mk1's then all is well eh.

A recent Rails email announces that Soinic are to produce the Newton Chambers car carriers in N Gauge.
Available in packs of three in both maroon and blue/grey.
Personally, I'm over the moon and will take six for the Anglo-Scottish Car Carrier, Perth-King's Cross (Holloway).

Hi Scott

Kind Regards

Hello Craig,

My rakes will be as found in the carriage marshalling document for 1964 which has been confirmed with contemporary photographs:

8.10pm Perth to London Holloway (9.20pm London Holloway to Perth)

BSK (The marshalling document says BSO, but we don't have one of them so a BSK will have to do).

Also in the '66 timetable, the overnight train had an RU from Perth

There was also a day train from 1966 (possibly '65?) as well that looked like this:

10.08 Perth to London Caledonian Road (07.51 London Caledonian Road to Perth)
TCV (Added at Newcastle)

I hope that is helpful.

If you know someone who's depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn't a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather.Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they're going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It's hard to be a friend to someone who's depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do."
