Mick, thanks for the nice pictures. They look fine in my opinion, and as Veronica says they are quite reliable models.

This detail is of particular interest.

between the roof line and the top of the window opening there is a molding of some sort, a drip edge or what have you,
and its clear that a course of crimson and lining must go right on top of that, and still leave a bit of space for some custard above the windows.


Is there a reference on-line to explain how these coaches were numbered?

This from Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_carriage_and_wagon_numbering_and_classification
I'd check with other sources to ensure accuracy.

The moulding is the gutter and should be painted the same colour as the roof. There is insufficicent space to get the correct liveryof a thin strip of cream, lining and wide crimson band between the window and gutter.

Have a look at Bristish Railways Mk1 Coaches by Keith Parkin as it has some excellent colour pictures of the crimson & cream livery.

Probably smoking a Lima MK1.
What's the similarity between a Lima MK1 and a Barratt's starter home?

You just can't shift 'em :no:
