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:

Cheers, Stu

This may be the one you were thinking of?

You're quite right, Stu. It should read 374-640 and I've corrected it now. Maybe Joe is right and I have lost a marble :worried:


Possibly.... I'll have to check to see how many I have/need.....they are all weathered ones I've done though....


As if I'd want a clean one ;) Some of the list in my OP are factory weathered but they still need your 'treatment'.

I hate to say this Mick @Newportnobby but in 1969 she would probably be hauling a mix of maroon and blue parcels stock.
You will have to go all the way to the dark side (1971, I mean) to justify a full rake of BR blue  >:D

IIRC some of these chromatic ones were withdrawn without going full blue/yellow dip so you can carry on and ignore me just like usual :)

@crewearpley40 Only blue, Chris. This is a one off rake. I already have maroon and green versions.

Thanks, Stu. I'll hold that in reserve as I'm waiting on @osborns reply about 3 items and the loco will be coming from them

This was my parcels train when it arrived; it has now been to the weathering shop.

I can see why there's a shortage of GUVs now!

Itís a fair cop guv.

Have you ever thought about a clayliner train? It could be seen anywhere between Cornwall and Stoke on Trent and with quite a variety of locos.
