either of standard Regional Railways 144011 or 144013 would also be fantastic. Sound added would be brilliant too.

 

Failing that, its the next 143s im after.... but god when it comes to 142s i expect im ordering batches of them in regular intervals off you!

Regional railways with sound and passengers, light weathering would be the icing on the cake.

Passengers made like Some of those 'Churchill insurance nodding dogs' would be great to really model the whiplash ride in true finescale fashion.....

You would need to add eccentric bearings on the axles to get the full authentic ride effect. My 144s run so smoothly you'd think they were on bogies.

 

Another vote for the original Metro-train red and cream, please!

I'd like to see the original WYPTE livery as in the photo above, just as a I remember them when they came into service (and my chosen modelling period). Was around from entry into service right through the 1990s, so a good period of time and hence appeal. Destinations for the York - Harrogate - Leeds loop with the cherry on top.

Can I just add that in addtion to the original WYPTE livery, some destinations for the Hull to Scarborough service, which these units were also used on from new. I remember some nice bouncy rides on them!

 

All the best

Hi Charlie,

 

That Metro red in your photo, just as I remember them passing Carnforth back in the day.
