  1. Evening all, Hope you're all well. A few updates on this ever-expanding coach project. 1. We are now offering, for each coach produced, the option of un-numbered or a factory applied running number, with a few options on the third class (TK) coaches. I've attached a full production table/list to this message, or you can go to the Thompson project page on our website (click HERE) to view it. I think the table shows the depths in which we've gone into, thanks to the help of some very knowledgable chaps . 2. We have removed the full brake in crimson & cream and replaced it with the Elizabethan style coach sides, as with standard coach sides it was painted in full crimson livery. The table may look a little daunting, so let me know if you have any questions. All the best, Ellis.
  2. Afternoon all, We've just received the final delivery of Mk1 Suburbans! This now means that all coach types and liveries are now in stock. All the best, Ellis.
  3. Hi there, Sorry, please can I either have your name or send another email and we'll get this done straight away. Kindest regards, Ellis.
  4. Hi there, Very easy - we provide link couplings for the brake ends free of charge. We're currently just awaiting a re-stock delivery of these, which should come in within the next two weeks. Kindest regards, Ellis.
  5. Hi Duncan, We will indeed! Although, if there's any particular coach type/livery you're interested in, please feel free to let me know. I can then hold them back (no obligation of course) until you've had a look. All the best, Ellis.
  6. Hi there, Happy to confirm these are fully to scale. Correct height, width and length, alongside correct scale bogies (also available separately) and scale wheels. There's a couple of pics of them on our website's gallery page, also there's a few that have been posted on the Gauge O Guild forum. We're currently updating and adding more to our gallery page. There's also a video of them running on Grindley Brook, which can be found on our Facebook page. Not sure how many the Western region used in rakes - the Southern region opted for the 63ft suburbans however. All the best, Ellis.
  7. Hi there, Not currently - but it is certainly something to consider for later production. Kindest regards, Ellis.
  8. Morning all, We've got two bits of exciting news... We've been waiting a while for these drawings, and they're now here, as our lead designer has finished the CADs for the simulated teak coaches. Our designer has spent 8 weeks working on a slightly different finish for each coach, alongside creating each panel from scratch. What do we all think? All the best, Ellis.
  9. Evening all, The Darstaed Mk1 Suburbans in BR blue are now in stock. Six coach types to choose from, all are now listed for sale on the website. We have also taken delivery of the Crimson composite lavatory coaches, which join the current line-up currently listed on our website. All the best, Ellis
  10. Hi all, Will try upload a few more, but due to file size it's not currently letting me upload any more. Cheers, Ellis.
  11. Afternoon all, May I present to you the first completed CAD drawings of the forthcoming Black 5. What do we think? All comments welcomed. All the best, Ellis.
  12. Afternoon all, Plenty of updates to this growing project with one big and exciting one... We're happy to announce that within this range of coaches we will producing a very limited number of 'The Elizabethan' express coach sets. To save me repeating myself, full details can be found in the handout and on the website under the Darstaed section. I'll also bullet point some of the other updates below: Teak Prices - As you know, the price of the teak coaches was always listed as TBC. Unfortunately we cannot do these for £199, as we have had to invest heavily in new tooling and extensive labour to create a finish that we are happy with. Due to the very high quality paint finish of our coaches, we did not want to do anything "sub-par" on the teaks, especially as done right, they can look pretty superb. The price for these coaches, I can now announce, will be £229 each. We're still awaiting final CADs and will of course keep you all up to date with samples of the planned finish. Round & Square Windows - We delved deep into this... We are now producing certain coaches with square cornered windows only, others with round windows only, and in the case of the TKs, BTKs and BCKs in Crimson & Cream and Maroon Lined liveries, they will be produced in both. We feel this should enable you to make a nice mix (if you'd like to of course) of round cornered and square cornered windows. RB Change - We have slightly changed a few things. The RB will now be produced with the fairings over solebars, as we can't seem to find existence of it without this implemented. Bogies - Three different types of bogies will be produced. The common 8' 6" light bogies, which were fitted to most vehicles, the 8' 0" bogies fitted only to the full brakes, and the 8' 6" heavy bogies used on the restaurant kitchens and Elizabethan stock. Coach/Destination Name Boards - A nice addition to the large features list - on each coach will be 4 tiny brackets in which you can slot different destination or coach boards. This negates the need for glueing boards in place and means you can easily and quickly swap them around should you wish your train to have a new destination! We are working on a list of different boards which we will produce in house. RTO now a TO - As a-pose to the original announcement with the RTO, we are now producing a Third Open TO/RTO to diagram 350. These were also used as restaurant cars, alongside having them lettered 'Restaurant Car' when in the 'Elizabethan Express' train. If you have any questions, please feel free to call, or reply to this thread What do you all think to the above? All the best, Ellis.
  13. Hi all, Good news! The springs are now in stock for the CW bogies. They lower the overall height of the coach by 2mm. We can supply these springs free of charge for those who have already purchased the coaches, or we can fit them in house, again, free of charge. If you would like some posting out, or to place an order with the new springs fitted, please feel free to email or call (01756 701451 or [email protected]) You can also place the order through the website with a note at checkout requesting these springs be fitted. All the best, Ellis.
