Sorry for the confusion then  :-[

No confusion at all - it was a fair guess to make. It was just luck that I had the information to hand to know that it's more likely to be buffer lock, but you never can tell in this game :)

id love 2 sets of the birdcages, one set in crimson and one set in the green. however im gonna wait a while for them to drop in price, which they will. They might  be harder to get but they will be available at the right places for the right price.

I myself just could not justify paying the price of a loco for 3 coaches. i appreciated why they are that price, but for me its too much.

Im already grinding my teeth on the prospect of upgrading my WCRC pullmans at 40 a pop...

While I completely understand your situation, you've hit the nail on the head when you highlight that 3 coaches is the price of a loco - having had quotes for tooling and producing coaches recently I think that what you are seeing is a reflection that tooling different coaches isn't significantly cheaper than tooling a loco. The quality of UK models of coaches has increased dramatically in the last 5 years or so, if anything I'd argue that 50/coach is more likely to be representative of the cost of tooling, production and margins for the manufacturer and retailer.

As an aside they'll only drop in price if thy don't sell out or get close to selling out. At that some point someone is taking a hit (either Farish or the retailer).

Cheers Mike
