HST Coach line up...... again!

Postby dl32249 » Fri May 27, 2011 9:54 pm

I know it has been mentioned before (by me and other) but im trying to find the correct product numbers for the FGW MK3 coachs in the new(ish) dynamic lines livery.
I have the following information from a reputable supplier in liverpool
R4372 – TGS x1
R4370 – Second Class x4
R4371 – Buffet x1
R4369 – 1st class x2

This is all very well but I dont want to order 4 x R4370 and end up with the same coach letters, as I want the full set from A - H. Anyone have any ideas what I can do? I know the old livery coaches had product numbers ending with a's and b's to show these were different.
Thanks

It's a little dissapointing when they don't release several second and first coaches at the same time.

Ironically the Arriva Cross Country coaches had three second class coaches released at the same time, just need additional release and an additionbal first class release.

To answer your question it may be worth contacting Precision Labels or someone like that, they may already have the transfers, you will need some blanking plates in the right colour and then the relevant letters to overlay.

The coach numbers will also need to be changed, maybe available already ?
