DRS 47s

Hi all

Thinking about getting Bachmann 47 474 in Parcels livery to redo as a DRS loco, as I thought about 47 501 but not sure on things like fuel tanks, any suggestions or advice, please?

many thanks

Why not go for ViTrains 47802? Cat. no. V2099. Already in DRS. A lot of people prefer the ViTrains 47 to Bachy 47's.

 

Cheers,

It'll need a bit of chopping around with the tanks, and a different boiler exhaust plate (which I believe Shawplan are able to supply) but 474 would be ok to respray as 47501 if that's the route you want to take. The model comes with two tanks on the underframe, but 501 only has one. This kind of mod is a piece of cake on the Farish 47, assume its bigger brother is similar

cheers
