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 ?

How many sets in a "box"?

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.

You could try working it out if their are enough clues in this photo
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.

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.
