Farish Thompson Coaches


Recommended Posts

Some future Scottish numbers would be good.

I share the sentiment though to be honest I will buy whatever Tim at Arcadia puts aside for me!  Only want 3 to make up a mixed rake of Thompson Gresley and Mk 1

Sadly there are no maroon versions in the first batch.

Following the same pattern as the Hawksworth coaches, which suggests maroon will come a year or two later.  As a sales strategy I'm afraid it does work, I've bought GWR and crimson/cream Hawksworth coaches that I probably wouldn't own if the maroon ones had arrived first.

Seen at Alexandra Palace today, samples of the fake teak finish on the N Gauge Thompsons. Incredibly impressive work by Bachmann.

ooh, they do look good, glad I have ordered mine with the anticipated ( from a certain big box shifter ) delivery date being May.

 

This May?

 

See the thread on Planned Farish releases - says January next, unless I'm reading it wrongly.

Oh, Looks like someone must have their wire crossed. At least it gives me more time to save up.

I cannot remember ever having seen model coaches with Scottish number prefixes.  I'd certainly like to have some - perhaps I should indulge in a little renumbering with decals.

Not a problem for me.  Whilst I prefer maroon to crimson & cream on full-sized coaches, in model form the maroon ones look rather drab & muddy to my eyes.  I eagerly await the crimson & cream ones.

For those who do want Maroons, it could be different and very much a problem for them. Given the lengthy wait for livery variations to arrive and the average* 20% year on year hike, Maroon Thompsons have the potential to cost in at either £57 (2 years) £69 (3 years) maybe even £82 (4 years) each by the time they arrive; less any shop discounting of course. Bachmanns precedent for delaying a livery release is currently 5 years between the 00 Portholes appearing and the Maroon versions arriving; so that 4 year figure isn't hyperbole, it could possibly go to 5 years and an even higher sum.

 

Will I pay the current price forecast? Probably, because I want to replicate some workings and to do that will need a fair few to be prototype faithful, but can and probably will whittle that down to one CK and TK. I certainly won't wait for Maroon to arrive though, it could potentially work out cheaper for me to buy the first release and send them Mercig to do a repaint; depending how soon Maroon liveried models arrive. And sadly that's not a comment made in jest...

 

* some items haven't seen a 20% year on year hike, others have had a much greater increase. Across the range it averages in at nearly 20%.
