I only have the forward cab lights and the number panel lit when running forward with just the number panel lit at the back, change direction and it's exactly the opposite.

That's what I have - with the table lamps on of course - and that's on DC in case there is any confusion.

There are no red lights. In this era, the prototype would have had an illuminated stencil route number, rather than roller blind numbers and would have carried an oil lamp on the back end - and this practice continued even into the BR(S) EMU stock like the 4-CEPs, although they did have red rear destination blinds too.
Farish modelled a numeric destination blind on one end of their 4-CEPs and red blinds on the tail end, and then got told people couldn't run their EMUs in reverse as they were showing the red blinds leading. I'm sure whichever way the manufacturer's model destination blinds, someone will think it was the wrong approach.

In 4mm Bachmann have corrected the error using LEDs and plain blinds.

As time allows I intend to investigate changing my Blue/Grey first edition Belle so the headcode illumination depends on it's direction of travel.

I then want to modify my CEPs so the headcode colour changes and use plain blinds.

Thanks, that's what mine is doing as well, wasn't sure if it had running lights or not, too used to Farish models which all did and was expecting Arnold to do the same.

No problem though, just checking it wasn't faulty

I bought a Farish 4-CEP on eBay - the red blinds don't bother me too much, I just run the unit in one direction :) headcode-forward.

A little late to the party but Kernow has these on sale cheaper than anywhere else I've seen them - £101 for the 3 car (only a couple of sets left in stock) and £169 for the motor units - that's £15 saving if you bought both with free postage.

I have just bought the Arnold SR 5-BEL Brighton Belle Pullman. I am reluctant to try and force the connections and see below that someone said these are 'tricky'. Any advice as to how to proceed to connect the coaches together would be most welcome.

They are stronger than they look but are fiddly to assemble !
