That’s not Caroline. It’s the ex Maunsell coach converted to an inspection saloon. No E7 or something like that. And in all over blue. Caroline was in blue grey from the start.
Sorry about that. It’s a great set of photos!

Hello all,

Thanks for posting the link to that image, but it is not Caroline.  Caroline (or 975025 as it was then) was outshopped in blue-grey livery.   Also the windows and underframe trusses are very different - I suspect it is Maunsell derived saloon  DS70155.  Here is another image: https://flic.kr/p/azrBpD

EDIT:  Yes, what Bob said.

Cheers

Ben A.

Well I just ventured to RevolutioNs website to see if there was an update on the 92's and an NSE Caroline just fell into my basket, quite how that happened I don't know!! But as it did I felt obliged to purchase said item  ;) ;)

Cheers

Well I have to say that was very careless. It could have been worse though... 2 or 3 may have fallen into your basket if you had been very very clumsy
