are they going to issue the TGS ? I've seen preorders for the buffets, both with and without buffers, and for the coaches, but not seen any mention of the TGS or equivalent BSO with buffers.

There were no Mk.3 BSOs, just three Mk.3b BFOs, hardly worth tooling, but the TGS is really essential for a 1980 on HST.

nc212a and nc212b are available now, both are trailer seconds. The only problem with these is for some obscure reason they are fitted with buffers. A trailer first has been announced for february. The buffet cars should be available in november according to Dapol. Dapol have also promised the TGS to follow some time in 2012.

hi everyone

thanks for all the replies

ok, i ordered one each of nd212a and nd212b now, i guess i can cut the buffers off... are they otherwise the same as hst mk3s though????

this will now take my hst set to 5 car (2x 1st, 3x 2nd)... guess i'll just have to run it like this until i can get a buffet, tgs and another 2nd....


thanks
