These look great and I'd love a set, but I think I'll have to wait.  I've got enough coaches (and locos).

Thanks for sharing the review, it reminded me of something I had wondered; would people buy coach packs of, say, three or four coaches making up a prototypical set?

Thanks for posting that.
Not just great looking carriages, but lots of information as to where run, formations etc.
I have 4 green ones on pre-order
 :thankyousign:

Yeah! Got a shipping confirmation email from Liverpool this morning. Ordered back in March.

Useful link so thanks for the info. Like Mick, I have one of each code (4) coming but only 1 brake (374-430). If I read the notes correctly, looks like I should get another. Am I right?

From what I gather all numbered sets had 2 brake coaches though I think they were composite brakes and these are not what Farish have produced. Possible to use them as strengthening coaches when extra passengers demanded it.
 Still it's good that we have some proper SR coaches. :)

A selection of typical coach sets are shown below (although this list is by no means comprehensive).

2-coach BSK-BCK (not possible due to lack of brake compo)
3-coach BSK-CK-BSK (Can be done)
4-coach BSK-SK-CK-BSK (Can be done)
5-coach BSK-SK-CK-SK-BSK (Can be done)

So the common 3, 4 and 5 coach sets can be made using the Farish coaches although the useful brake compo is missing. For more info, see here.

You have to watch for the two different window types and contractor built for the sets if you are trying to get them right. Also for sets that have 59ft stock in them!

The Bachmann choice seems quite sensible in that respect as although the 'R' sets were common for the West of England services they had the early 10" ventilators so really do need to a different arrangement for both coaches.

The SO is a rather odder choice though being mostly associated with boat trains.

You do get some of the classic formations for most of the rest of the southern region, and in some cases elsewhere (Bulleids made it to Newcastle on alternate days for the Bournemouth service whcih ran Newcastle-Sunderland-Darlington-York-Sheffield-Nottingham-Leicester-Banbury-Didcot Reading(avoiding)-Basingstoke-Bournemouth)

I agree, the rest of the choices seem fairly sensible but I think that a BCK would have been a much better choice than the SO.

Thanks for the info.

For me, a small application of Rule 1 will suffice.  ;)

Merry Christmas all  :wave:

Hi

Just got my Christmas present form my partner two of the new Graham Farish Bullied coaches 1 Crimson Cream Corridor Composite and 1 Green semi open brake.

I had a quick look at them as she wants to wrap them, they look really good,only problem she didn't know what colour to get hence one of each,can I run the 2 of them together,my era is approx 1956-60.

I got mine from Kernow Model Rail 18.99 each,they were posted yesterday and arrived this morning.which I think is excellent service.

Wishing Every One a Happy Christmas and a Good Modelling New Year
 :Carriage:

For your era I can see no problem as both liveries are relevant. The green being the livery that lasted until the end.
Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.
