Its supposed to be green - I've ordered one on that basis. I believe there is another thread discussing this issue which came to the conclusion its green.
Thanks. I just e-mailed them. 2D-012-006 is supposedly the green 22 with white (~1930s) United Dairies tankers. But blue with silver tankers would be more useful to me. We shall see what they say!

Cheers, NeMo

Unfortunately the Blue version is still at full price of 179.95 if you order it from Dapol direct.

For your info you can get the Blue version from Hattons at 142.
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

With my main layout being based in Oxfordshire there was no way I could justify a Blue Pullman (Rule 1 doesn't exist for me :no:) but when it came out I just had to have one.
Everything else I have can be justified :)


I think they did run in Oxfordshire, from 1967 - 69 Another link

Well there were 2 models for me:

No. 1 being the Blue Pullman, being a Leicester lad I remember my dad telling me about them running through when they were new.

No.2 being the Class 70, just had to have one, I think they look great, a sweet oasis of difference in the vast boring desert of Class 66's!!!!!!!!!

Regards

Neal.

Thanks Pengi :thumbsup: I think this was the clincher for me..........

In the end when the LMR cars did arrive there was a new non-stop Oxford service which covered the 63 1/2 miles in one hour, starting on the 6th March 1967. They were also used on additional Bristol trains which stopped at Bath. The "Bristol Pullman" made use of both 6-car sets on the 08:45 from Bristol and 17:45 return.

When I find a Farish 4CEP going for 100 or less, I just have to buy it. Let me know if you know of any.

I'd like a class 70, but it must be in Colas livery, and if someone issues one, I'll just have to buy one.

And as for electrostar classes 375/377 and similar: if anyone issues one I'll just have to buy a couple of dozen.
Best wishes

Jane

I'd like to add, for the sake of any manufacturers reading this, that I would readily succumb to a) a Class 33 (of the Crompton persuasion) and a Class 50 (of the Hoover persuasion).

If I ever come across anymore Dapol 86s in Intercity livery out there I guarantee I will succumb.

That said, I managed to pick one up from Australia on ebay last month with a decoder fitted for fifty odd quid including postage.

Great to see so many people succumbing to a BP. By the way, they look like this  :D
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)


Dagnabbit, don't do that! My wallet broke out in a cold sweat  :D

My treat to myself from TINGS from the Farish scrum which I just couldn't resist at 70 quid. I wasn't going to get another Tornado (I have it in *cough* OO) but at that price, in blue livery I just had to have it.

You didn't have to buy it; you could have left it for me  :) But I mustn't be too greedy; I got 4 of them.  :NGF:

It seems they have now run out of all of their Farish 4CEPs. I don't suppose they'll get any more at that price.
Best wishes

A Dapol voyager (because my Farish ones are so s-l-o-w) plus a Desiro (although in the wrong livery for me)



More Voyagers . . .



And a BP - a bit too ancient for my layout but I have my late father's Triang/Hornby OO version and it it a lovely looking train



And then a whole load of ICE trains . .
Just one Pendolino, give it to me, a beautiful train, from Italy
