I always said I'd be up for at least one 74 if and when produced.  And come Monday I'll be as good as my word.  

 

Edit : It's Monday evening here.  Two class 74s are now on order

How do you get the generous discount? I've got a 71 on order from Kernow, and I tried to order a 74 from them but it came up at the full price.

If you read the Kernow web page it clearly states that the discount will be applied when they process your order and the value refunded to you.

The website says that the discount and postage charge will be deducted manually.

OK, sorry. It's a but early for me; I don't normally get going until midday (at least that's my excuse).

Rather wierd livery description on the Kernow website - "small full yellow ends"........

 

Keith

 

Indeed.  Email enquiry sent to confirm the actual meaning.  TOPS-numbered locos should have a full yellow end.  Pre-TOPS locos I believe carried a small panel upon first release to traffic which matched the initial Rep/TC livery and that of numerous DEMU units in the Hampshire area at the time.

Blue with full yellow ends from conversion in 1967 according to various images in 'The Power of the Electro-Diesels' by Colin Marsden, and the Electro-Diesels An Illustrated History of Classes 73 and 74 by the same author.

In which case all should be full yellow end.

Much more appeal that the geographically challenged class 71, good development.

The correct link is (Dave's link didn't find the right page).

Up front payments for an unseen model is too big a leap of faith for me, but will buy if the promised goods are delivered, so hoping for success here.
