Nobby's mental breakdown
« on: December 30, 2021, 04:19:04 PM »
Ever since I saw the chromatic blue Hymek D7036 on @Chris Morris  'Dawlish Warren' with white window surrounds and SYP, an itch for a rake of blue stock has required scratching. This has resulted in me ordering one from Osborns and to go with it I'm sourcing:-

Dapol 2F-014-003 Fruit D ex forum member ohlavache
Dapol 2F-047-007 CCT ex forum member ohlavache
Dapol 2F-047-012 CCT ex Rails of Sheffield
Dapol 2F-014-012 Fruit D ex Rails of Sheffield
Farish 374-890 50ft Stanier Full Brake ex Kernow
Farish 374-136 GUV ex Chelmsford Models
Farish 374-045 (pre ordered with Rails) MK1 BG Newspapers
Farish 374-587 (pre ordered with Rails) Hawksworth Full Brake
Farish 374-039A (in my stock and weathered by mk1gtstu) MK1 BG Blue/Grey

All are destined to be sent to mk1gtstu for weathering apart from the loco. I couldn't bring myself to do that  :no:

Not only that, but @Bob G sent me this link to D7036 at Oxford!! Serendipity or what?!

https://www.rail-online.co.uk/p870200504/h373CA35A#h373ca35a

So -it's out in the open and I fully lay the blame at Chris's door.

I do assure you, though, this is a 'one off' just like my Poppylino, class 800 and Dapol HST125 so please don't think I've lost it completely.  :laugh3: :laugh3:

Welcome to the dark side of British Rail Blue Mick!  :D

If you want the Diesel weathered to match the rest of the train I can do that for you, I have been known to have done a few in the past... ;D

I know its second choice Mick @Newportnobby but............

@exmouthcraig Many thanks for that, Craig. I had seen it but thought I'd give any forum member first crack at supply.

And I know you'd do a great job of it, Stu, but I just couldn't do that to such a glorious livery. :stop:

Tried virtually everywhere, Chris. As a fall back might have to revert to 374-125 (125A or 125B) if there's no response but ad only placed today.

It's not that, Stu. 374-132 and 136 are later models and are much more detailed, especially the underframe. See......

Hey Joe, where you going with that gun in your hand. I'll have you know I have two marbles and keep them in a bag that badly needs ironing..

Not sure this number on your post is correct either Mick?

Farish 374-690 CCT

I googled it & it comes up as a Farish MK2F Coach?  :hmmm:
