Now a more serious question.

Is the Farish Mk2A  BSO in DRS livery the escort coach? And is there just the one coach, or is there a second model out there somewhere?

Thanks,

John P

Hi John,

I believe Farish have now done two versions of the Escort coaches, 374-681 (9419) and 374-681A (9428.)

I don't know exactly how many different escort vehicles there are in the real fleet; we saw four when we were at Kingmoor to measure the KUA; two were aircon Mk2s (not sure which type) and two were Mk2As as modelled by Farish. 

The Farish models, correctly, have the large windows in each end and no gangway.

Cheers

Ben A.

I just picked up the pair on ebay for a very good price  :)

Very nice.  Will be in for both KUAs, the low level waste PFAs and containers.
Thanks

Did the PFA announcement get leaked too early, or will there be another N gauge announcement tomorrow evening? I ask because the Revolution Trains website does not mention the PFA yet.

Hi Western Exile,

Yes, for the website we are splitting it to focus more on each type separately.

The press release I sent out mentioned both types to avoid sending out too many separate documents!

Cheers

An interesting choice.

On the upside, I'll only have to worry about saving for my Beyer-Garratt.

Best of luck with the new project.

They do look great models & with the coaches & a pair of locos would make an interesting train. However, even with my bending of history they are far to late for Thetford Rd.

I can hear the OO Modellers asking for one already!

Another post 1990s model though - I'm not sure if I should be upset it doesn't fit my late 1980s time frame, or pleased as the only dents in my bank ballance will be from the Sturgeons and class 128s...

I'm not suprised about the PFA. A rake of these fits in nicely with my modelling location and period - perfect! I'm not sure if it'll be worth replacing my 28 C=Rail kits though. Perhaps I need a loaded and unloaded train as per my HAAs...

Talking of C=Rail, an you twist an arm or two and get some Greater Manchester Binliner containers done for the KFA?

My understanding is that the KR Models proposal has been cancelled.

Also, the wagon they showed in CAD is significantly different to the ones we are offering and not associated with MoD traffic.

No No No No!!!!

Do the Knowsley binliners instead.

No, do the Bristol ones.

That's rubbish (see what I did there), we need the Edinburgh ones even more.

Joking aside, I think a kit with different overlays/bits for the ribbing on the sides would perhaps be the best plan. As far as I can tell all the various binliner containers around the country are all different. The main things they have in common are that they are all 20' and they are all plain blue.

Anyway we are getting off topic.

John P
