Surely it wouldn't be too risky in terms of shifting units,bearing in mind they did a 110 in these colours in the 1980s & Bachmann did a 108 2-car set recently.
They've done 101s in every other form of livery to date,so why not in the white?

And they did not sell well at all

'Phipps' hasn't been active here nearly two years, but eventually got the wish near fulfilled by Bachmann's 101, still available in BR's white with blue stripe...

Maybe that's why they have not been active as they are happy running their new 101. :)

I hope Phipps/Blue Phipps is well. I remember him going through a pretty crappy time of it
