DC Kits Class 144

Postby Small » Sun Feb 03, 2008 2:17 pm

Hi there,
I'm just about ready to apply the transfers to my DC Kits class 144. (It's in the old red and cream WYPTE livery).
I'm struggling to find out where the Metro Train branding is located on each unit and also assuming that the unit will be numbered 144001 does anybody know what the correct bodyside numbers would be fior each car?
Any constructive help would be most gratefully recieved.
Cheers.

Hi all.

In conjunction with our new Ready to Run model of a Class 144 two car unit. We need good photographs, especially Regional Railways, Arriva Red & Silver, Northern Red & Silver. Plus if available the two early West Yorkshire MetroTrain Red & Cream.
