K-type Pullman
« on: April 13, 2019, 12:57:06 AM »
Hi Revolution!

If you are searching about for a new project, how about a K-type Pullman Brake second? I have tried to bash a couple together to go with a rake of the excellent Farish Mk1 Pullmans, but I can't reach a high enough standard. Everyone who has purchased the Farish models can justify at least a couple, so the market should be there, and if they go well, you could look at other K-types!

I got all excited when I saw the subject 'K-type Pullman' :bounce: on the board 'RevolutioN Trains' :bounce:

 :'( I thought it was an announcement.

 :dunce: I am so sorry, Railgooner. However, if there are enough posts like ours, then maybe one day there will be an announcement! Apologies to everyone. I am sure that the moderators will move this to a more appropriate part of the board.

We've briefly considered k-type pullmans previously but they definitely fall well outside our area of knowledge!

Ideally for coaches our feeling is that rather than just offer one type in isolation that it is better to plan for variants from the start then you have the option of producing just the most popular variants or offering as wide a selection as possible.

If anyone wants to put together some photos and if possible outline drawings or highlight if any still exist then that is all the sort of thing that helps build a case for a model to be considered (like the Class B tanks).

Cheers Mike

No probs Stuart. :thumbsup: K-type and GWR clerestory would be very much Rule #1 for me. They are different enough to make them interesting and all the more appealing for it.

Most of my collection is a century later than Birdcage stock. But I'll have to get a set. And then I'll probably have to get a loco to suit! Rule #1.

However I have no interest in any of the above beyond their quirky aesthetic appeal. So I'm never going to be able to help prepare a case for them. :beers:

K-Type Parlour firsts and thirds plus 12-wheeled H-Type Parlour Thirds would certainly interest me - that's the Bournemouth Belle in 1931.
