Dapol or Farish Cross Country

Postby georgehgv » Tue Apr 09, 2013 3:55 pm

Hi, Have got a Dapol 4 car Cross Country HST.

Are the Farish Cross Country models a good match to use on same layout, meaning is the 2 car DMU and Voyager going to look OK with it?

Would the Farish Cross Country Coaches look OK in the DMU, not the Voyager as has red roof. And how would the Farish coaches look in the Dapol HST rake?

Thanks.

Hi

The dapol HST looks good with the Farish DMU & Voyager. The Dapol HST looks perfectly fine with the Farish coaches, the biggest drawback is running Dapol and Farish coaches together, the Farish coaches then ike to derail. May be ok once a little weight is added o the farish coaches, but as far as looks go the Farish & Dapol caoches look fine side by side.

Of course there's no interior in the Farish coaches, hence the lasck of weight.

Cheers

Tony

Thanks Tony, trying to model modern era and distinct lack of traffic for first great western, managed to get dapol hst new last week , waiting for coaches to be released, cross country will have to feature on my fictitious plans so have the hst and voyager now by farish, bought some farish cross country coaches and am considering the 2 car dmu.

All this is possible because selling my OO stuff to fund new N venture.

Doesn't look much in the planned releases for me so will have to pursue new stock discontinued,

Thanks for your reply, regards, George

Hey George. You can always look at electro graphics and mod coaches to a suitable livery. I'm going to order some arrive mk3 overlays when things pick up. Something a little different
Whoo, new job... big pay cut... but new job! yay
