Ebay is the most likely source, sold out from all major dealers.

“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.”

I was on the Hattons watchlist for one of these and they emailed last week.  I snapped it up.  DCC fitted, the coaches in the set had light bars fitted (as did the second hand MK3 I bought at the same time.)  I also bought two new mk3s so will fit light bars to them next month.  It's fantastic!  Incidentally, the trailing car shows white light for forward and red when trailing, but the power car only light when going forward.  Is it just unlucky that the red led isn't working or is there some DCC jiggery-pokery that will sort it?

My rake is a first class, buffet/restaurant, 2 second opens and a 2nd guards.  The look is classic and IMHO the absolute best livery for an iconic design that took me on some of my best adventures as a young man (including taking me to Cornwall for a 'swan song' week with Sarah...I think we'll stop that particular tale there  ;))

I have the same set and using DC the lights are white going forward and red in reverse as you'd expect. I know nowt about DCC so maybe something has been changed lighting wise by the vendor

I programmed them like that originally but I’ll give it another go. It might end up being one of those things. It certainly isn’t a show stopper and does not detract from my pleasure at having this train running on Devex Junction (where Rule 1 applies and the bar is always open)

Ok, how do I do that? [simple terms please - I can strip a machine gun in the dark and the rain and can take a screaming 6 foot drunk to the floor with ease (ex-soldier, now a copper) but the subtleties of CV programming are mumbo-jumbo to me, so far]

Two things at play here...

Lights in the dummy reversed - as Only Me says put both on the programme track back to back (that bit’s important) when you program them.

No red lights in the powered car - the red LED on the lighting board has probably failed or the wire’s come unsoldered, both relatively easy fixes, if a bit fiddly.

I thought as much - I will investigate...(thanks!)

The cause would seem to be a disconnected wire, looks like the soldering has gone.  A small, fiddly job and i'm not much of a solderer.  I might build a mock-up to practise on first (or I might just leave it)
