There were no Restaurant or EGV Mk2As. Only standard and Composites. The EGVs for the 2As were 3 modified Dutch vans with Mk3 gangways fitted. There were only 2 IR and 2 IE Mk2As released.

Thanks for the info Railer. My question therefore should have been 

“what coaches best complement the standard 2A to make a set?”

There were 15 Mk2As. They were generally formed as 2 sets of 6 with EGV and 1 short set of 3 plus EGV but this was subject to change as conditions demanded. This short set was used as cover sometimes when not a maintenance spare, even ended up on a Connolly - Maynooth hauled by a 121+141 of all things.

There were never sets a such, the 2As were treated as Cravens. Only thing missing from the modelling scene for the 2As is a modified Dutch van. Would love for someone to release a high end RTR version myself.

 

 

Thanks Dave, never knew that.
