Just put the deposit down on Southern 313206.  Just out of curiosity, are the livery differences between 206 and the other one on offer 204 being represented?

Are there any?…. the only thing that I can see that is different is the ‘BI’ depot label - 204 has is directly above the right-most marker light on both ends, whereas 206 seems either to not have it, or when it is present, is immediately adjacent to the running number…. 
 

Other than that, I cannot see any difference…. from what I’ve seen the livery application on the Southern 313 fleet is pretty consistent; certainly compared to other liveries the 313 has appeared in!

The crescent of the dark green window surrounds behind the side cab access door is in different places (There are at least three different versions/combinations) whereas most have the crescent almost up to the cab door, 204 at one end only has it barely past the last saloon side window, a difference of at least a foot or two.

 

313206:

Southern Class 313/2 313206 Bognor Regis 1/6/14

 

313204:

Southern Class 313/2 313204 Portsmouth & Southsea 31/8/12

 

Another difference is 202 which has white gutters over the passenger doors on one driving car, all others are green.

Yep, you are absolutely right - and only any one end as well - what were the chances!…. makes for some interesting variation I suppose…..

Considering the 12 inch to the foot scale NR 313121's reliability recently, you will need another 313 anyway to represent it being constantly towed around...

As the early bird deadline is approaching for these, I’m hoping the retailer exclusives get announced soon. I would order the NR version but if it’s not being picked up I don’t want to miss out on an early bird discount on one of the others…

Hi guys, any news on these? Conscious the early bird deadline is Sunday.

Hi David

 

No news to report other than what we've reported already ie which versions we think will be retail exclusives.  We don't normally confirm retail exclusives before the early bird deadline , though this time we've had a longer early bird period than normal and tried to give people an idea of what sets might be coming as retail exclusives.

 

Cheers Mike

Hi Gang,

Well, that an order gone in for a couple of units.

Will I succumb to the temptation of more before the Sunday pricing deadline. .?

 

Stay Tuned…..!!!
 

Later,

Apologies if this is something I’ve missed - are they powered on the centre car with the driving cabs as trailers, or is the motor in one end?

 

Thanks

There are a few photos of the 313/4 EP sample taken at Model Rail Scotland here

 

It's looking excellent, captures the look of the PEP units spot on to my eye and the underframe detail is impressive. 

 

Tom.
