Re: Tornado express coach question

Sort of, the A1 Trust comissioned Bachmann to produce a limited edition BCK painted up as the support coach that they're currently overhauling/converting. I'm sure others have been comissioned as limited editions elsewhere but they'll only be based on the original toolings rather than a bespoke mod...

Re: Coach Identification on King Edward 1

I remember the ETHEL's from the railtours out of Marylebone during the 1980's (curse of photographers at the time!!) they could have done with one of those coaches on the Cathedrals Express 6024 hauled on 12/02....... apparently they had no heating all day and some coaches had no power for the light...

Re: 70000 on the Royal Train - 24th January.

6024 only had 3 lamps on the bufferbeam when it hauled the royal train on the Severn Valley a few years back, but it did have the Prince of Wales headboad hung on the top lamp bracket

I have a 22xx, 57xx and an autocoach, all 3 run well on 1'st to 4th radius track, so you'll have no problems on 2nd radius

Re: Turntables

I know Marylebone had a turntable that was still being used in the mid to late 1980's, as mentioned before Old Oak Common still had one in use at that time,
appart from the one at preserved heritage lines, not sure if any are left

Hope this Helps

Re: The Return of the King

I read in Heritage Rail's model railway segment that the model of 6023 will only be avaliable in a limited number (1000 units), so you'll have to be quick if you want one,
