Evening all,

 

We have received the CAD images for the catering vehicle interiors.

 

These are available for pre-order now and expected to arrive mid to late September.

 

What do we think?

 

Cheers,

Ellis.

Kindest regards,

Trevor, am I missing something, I cannot see any coach numbers, so how can they be fictional?

The coaches in photos the clicky link in the original post have numbers on them, perhaps that’s what he means

An example of incorrect coach numbers. On the lined maroon coaches the BSK's are numbered W 80409 and M 80406

the SK is M 18284. The Southern green MK 1's also have some incorrect numbers.

I am not being picky, but this is such a basic thing to get right. The models themselves look excellent.

The coaches come un numbered.

Apologies. I meant unumbered. I have enough of them to know.

Hi People,

 

So all the coaches come un-numbered with a transfer sheet so you can pick your own.

 

The weathered and numbered versions on my website have been done by one of our weathering guys using a train spotting "bible" if you will, but I'll double check this.

 

Cheers,

Ellis.

Afternoon everyone,

 

My mistake on this one, I mixed up the transfer sheets when sending these to my weathering chap.

 

Usually they get checked, but sods law on this one he trusted me giving him the numbers and I gave him the wrong ones! Doh!

 

They're getting renumbered next week.

 

Cheers,

Ellis.
