Matt,

I see that in one of the pictures you posted there is a Churchward auto trailer in lined maroon, I seem to remember people saying this never happened?

Regards,

Alex

Actually that is a 1930s Collet one but even so, I was unsure myself if any had received this  livery. Good spot. :thumbsup:
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

The instructions for fitting the detailing bits at the ends are the clearest I've seen ...

Crystal. :thumbsup: Most if not all I've seen, are a waste of trees and even Ikea would reject them as too vague. :thumbsdown:
“We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland,” UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. “The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.”

After getting mine home and having a good look today I have to say this is the best coach ever produced in N gauge.

I think maybe Farish have gone back to one moulding for the windows and coach sides but with more relief or else thay have found a cunning way to get rid of any prismic effects. However they have done it, it looks better than anything I have seen in N rolling stock.

Great load of extras too and nice instruction sheet.

Never thought I would say this but.. Worth the money.

I really hope to see a RTC version of this done, as Test Car 1.

The Dapol version released some years ago is the wrong prototype and the colours are totally different to the Farish RTC coaches.

This is a great opportunity for a far superior version of Test Car 1 in RTC livery.

Another shot here of a Hawksworth autocoach, again on the Plymouth - Saltash service. This one is unusual in showing one of the rarer, auto-fitted classes of locos, a 4575. 15 of these locos were converted in the early 50s for the south-Wales valleys services. After the introduction of DMUs in the late 50s, these were dispersed around the system and a couple of them wound up in the south-west to supplement Laira's 6400s on auto services.

Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)
