Hi Nick,

I know it sounds very fiddly and time consuming but how about using strips of black decal around the window frames? Or even black electrical tape?

Replace them with the newest style Bachmann Farish coaches. The alternatives are all pretty complicated and involve things like cutting vinyls to match the windows then fitting them on the inside and lining them up exactly. Really it's easier to replace the coaches with the nice new ones (and cheaper I suspect) than to do major surgery on the old ones.
