Kernow have tweeted today (c 2pm) that they are down to their last few boxes! If you have one on pre order and have not yet responded....


Do you mean pre orders or general stock levels because all four versions show more than 10 in stock ATM ?

Sorry....you tell me.All a bit confusing.....twitter being strictly for the birds as far as I'm concerned.Like the proverbial Russian doll..sets in a box within a bigger box and so ad infinitum. Time for a pre dinner quaff methinks...Cheers !

Yes, Rob I am exceedingly fortunate to have stood in the vestibule and behind that gate....

Thank you for that photo, John. The photos of 374 olive on the KMRC site showed the colour to look more like 'baby nappy brown' than the olive that Hornby and Bachmann livery their coaches in. Given that any photo can 'tell a lie' but the eye in real life doesn't, how would you say the olive colour of these matches the Maunsells and Birdcages from red and blue?

look great with the O2.

 

BUM! That's the thing that I forgot...the O2 in olive is sold out..plenty of the others, but that's no good to me (unless one can be relatively painlessly be repainted. :(

 

Truffy's mind is not what it was. I have a Hornby M7 in PP guise.  :senile:

Not me guv. Ian H was concerned that there were too few left. It all depends how many are in a box. "More than 10" and "not many boxes" are not mutually exclusive.

General question - if one was to look at replacing the corridor connections on these coaches, where would they look to find the required bits?

You could try Roxey Mouldings, who do a scissors gangway. I'm sure there are other possibilities, too.

Probably old hat now, because most here that are interested will have made their purchase. But the major thing that put me off purchasing this stock was the terrible photo of the Maunsell olive green version on the KMRC site, it looked rather muddy brown. It wasn't until John Flann of this parish posted his photos of Port Bredy that I took the plunge.

 

This shows the Kernow gate stock (middle) together with a Hornby Maunsell (left) and Bachmann birdcage (right). It's a terrible photo, I'm the first to admit, but at least it shows how close the Kernow is to especially the Hornby. And then there's the question of different batches/weathering, so all's good.

Having got a set now, I'm delighted with them and miles better than I could ever do. My only wish is that is that maybe one of the auto fitted brakes with only a few compartments was done to do a different set.
