    Thanks for the updates - Will this coach be all over blue, or will it look like TC2 with the two tone Blue/Red?

    Whilst it'll never be my favourite livery, there's no denying how smart it looks, nice job! One thing I did notice, are blue door and grab handles correct? I know next to nothing about the finer points of this livery, but I'd have expected plain metal or black.

    No they are not correct. They should be polished, the brass ones we did have were stolen. so we have removed the high value handles and painted them to match the Test Car this vehicle will be joining.

    Fair dos, that's why we paint ours black to discourage the brass fairies!

    So am I Phil! I missed it last time it got pulled out of the shed. It should look even better once it gets varnished and we've cleaned the windows.

    You've made such an excellent job of the ferrytank it would be worth coming back to Llangollen for the other one.
