Which livery are you interested in? I have blue/grey ones but I don't have the equipment to go with them.

I have an old one with the ER logo and in Maroon - unfortunately the top has some marks (looks like from a soldering iron) and the numbering is slightly worn.

I've changed the wheels from the original too. One of the 'flaps' doesn't seem to stay closed.

If you're interested then let me know. It was obtained as part of a group of 2nd hand coaches with the 'good intention' of using them in a siding with coverings, probably about 4 or more years ago. You can have it if you wish.

It is not quite the same. Mine is a Tri-ang version. The roof is different and the flaps are maroon in keeping with the body.

Photos coming.....

I seem to recall the Triang version is a lot shorter to match their short coaches .
