I thought the idea of the forum was to ask all the knowledgeable people out there for answers,  that would perhaps take hours of internet searching.
Indeed it is, no problem asking questions, however the issue is in the implication that Farish are somehow "wrong" not to have produced more mk1 Pullmans in WCRC Maroon if you don't know whether there were any more prototypes for them to replicate...
A rake of two is hardly inspiring

Which is exactly what I said 3 days ago!
Farish probably only did the two in maroon because that's all WCRC did in overall maroon  ;)
Remember, these models represent the vehicles in post-privatisation charter train condition. As far as I'm aware, they weren't used in an all Pullman rake, they were used as premium accommodation in a rake otherwise consisting of ordinary .mk1s...

I am not getting into slagging match, but there was NO implication that Farish was wrong in any way, it was just a mere questions as to wether any more different ones would be produced. I now know that there were only two in the real world by asking the original question, which was answered satisfactory by your good self.

In total 4 MK1 Pullman PSPs have worn Maroon for West coast. 99347, 99348, 99350 and 99352. Of these only 99347 is still in Msroon. The other three are now running in Umber/Cream and carry non prototypical names as opposed to threir car numbers that would be correct.

Cheers
