For you mike @emjaybee , https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/975025_Caroline.          Generally an interesting model  but I'm hoping theres sufficient interest. Will be happy to watch this space. The coach used to be a buffet, converted as a saloon for the Southern Region GM, but also carried Royalty and a Pope

Would it not be be great if they included figures of Charles, Dianna and the Pope  :D

David. A good idea but I can see us repainting our own figures and the GM, dignitaries and adding the red carpet

Thanks for that.

I've nothing against the Pope, I'm sure he was a lovely chap, and I'm perfectly happy with the Royal family and all their little foibles, but I still don't get the big excitement over this vehicle.

What am I not getting?

Brilliant Facebook Live again Gents
I thoroughly enjoyed it and am delighted that the MMA/JNAs are going to appear in N Gauge.
I have also filled in the EOIs for Carolyn and the 89.

Could we, please, have new separate threads for the 89 and Carolyn to make it easier to follow the progress.

Cheers,
Ged.

As I mentioned there are quite a few variations of Caroline that won’t be feasible to do - we have 3 main tooling variations in the OO model but there are more detail variations for particular time periods and it just isn’t possible to offer everything.

 :thankyousign:

Probably just the b/g and NSE versions for now.

However depending on how close in detail the NSE is to the first green one I might go for a third to repaint especially as Railtec now do the transfers.

Hello all,

Thanks for the great feedback.

I appreciate that the image isn’t always the best - especially if there are buffering issues - but there is a certain frisson to a live event that gives it an edge.  And we always upload decent photos of the stuff we are talking about to our website within a few hours.

In answer to some specifics:

Why Caroline?

Caroline is an iconic and historic vehicle - she is a one-off, unlike the NGS Saloons - and considered of such importance that she has already been set aside for the National Collection once her days with Network Rail are over.

For SR modellers of the blue grey or NSE era I’d say she’s almost an essential; being used variously with Class 73 or 33 (excellent models of both are available) and even, on occasion, used to pilot units such as 4-VEPs and 4-CEPs.

Arran Aird sent us this excellent photo from Clapham junction - I especially like the yellow painted on the inside of the air horns!



In addition she is still in service, unlike the NGS types, making her of significantly more use to those of us modelling the present day. 

Traction nowadays is usually provided by a DRS Class 37 - a brief search on Flickr or similar brings up dozens of irresistible photos of Caroline with a DRS 37 in plain blue, compass or even large logo - in particular Caroline will make the perfect accompaniment to those of us who have the “Vulcan” 37558:

https://flic.kr/p/29pktXG

In terms of threads on separate items - good idea, I will check with admin.   I can certainly do one for the MMA/JNA Ealnos in N; for the Class 89 and Caroline it may make sense to wait until each has reached some kind of critical mass before starting a thread.

Incidentally, thanks to all who’ve expressed interest in 89001 or Caroline so far - the response has been pretty staggering!

Cheers

Ben A.

I think that it is actually more important to have separate threads for the 89 and Caroline!

Also thoroughly enjoyed last nights episode. Here’s hoping they will continue in the future as another means of getting information/announcements  across to potential followers/customers.

Agree with Ged’s Comment on splitting posts into the 3 topics, MMA/JNAs, Caroline, Cl89 and keep this one for future FB announcements.

Keep up the good work

Ron

      then we can keep two entirely unique models separate as well as save confusion ,  stay on topic etc

Really enjoying these facebook live events. They're very informative and interesting. Would be good to see other manufacturers adopt a similar initiative and deliver an interactive platform.

Although not all of the latest announcements are my cup of tea/era etc, I'm keen to see how they develop.

Just ordered a full rake of Cawoods PFA's to model the North Blyth - Ellesmere Port service.

Cheers,

Tim
