  1. Only thing I may have been tempted by was the Class 117, but not at that price.
  2. That’s very informative. Thank you. So I’ll take that to mean BSOs (or BSO(T)s) will not have been seen in the West Midlands. That solitary declassified FO in the Provincial pool, any idea what sort of services it would have worked? Thanks again
  3. Hi all, and Happy New Year. I’m interested in adding some of Hornby’s Mk1 BSOs and FOs to my rakes of Mk1 coaches for a bit of variety. My area of interest is around Birmingham from 1988 to 1994ish. By this stage was there anywhere in the country where BR was still regularly using the Mk1 BSO or FO? I know a lot of the FOs were transferred to InterCity Charter services, but I’m looking more at regular passenger duties, if there were any. What sort of services were these coaches used in please? Thanks in advance.
  4. Ugh - that will be more models to sneak past the wife then. Thanks for that.
  5. Hi there - I’d be interested in Locomotives & Coaching stock 1990 and 1994 please?
  6. Sorry I’m a bit late to the party. I paid £260 odd Or whatever it was for an APT. Natwest helped me with a dispute using their online form and they reclaimed my money. I was just outside their time frame but they still were successful. Was quite looking forward to having an APT-P so hopefully someone else can release one successfully.
  7. 32-764 “Northern Princess” is discontinued. They have 32-764A “Solway Princess” now. You could always have one in Northern Belle livery and one in DRS livery as well. I think the variety adds a bit of visual interest.
  8. The *TSO* does. But the Mk2D and Mk2E FOs are essentially the same barring the bump stops which have been removed on the Northern Belle set anyway.
  9. The photos on Hattons DEFINITELY show them being the Mk2E tooling. Apart from bump stops (removed on these anyway I believe) is there any difference between a Mk2D and Mk2E FO anyway?
  10. It’s a shame they didn’t tool the oval door windows.
  11. The only flush glazing I have come across is the SE finecast stuff. They do it for the Lima Mk2 non air con too. It isn’t plug and play - you need to file out each window aperture slightly to get it to fit. The roof will still click in place. The door glazing is part of what holds the roof on and is quite flush. You don’t need to replace that and that should be enough to hold it.
  12. Hi All, I’ve purchased a new Bachmann POT at a very keen price using the eBay discount code last week. Sadly it’s come damaged with some parts loose in the box. The retailer doesn’t have any more so if I return it I won’t be able to get another one for the same price. The corridor end step and gangway end has come off but that’s all very straight forward. 3 of these metal bars came out of the box too and I don’t know where they go! Any suggestions please?
  13. Some excellent advice in here, thank you. With respect to lamp irons I plan on cutting some staples in half and using those.
