Recommended Posts

I believe that there is one running on Bantry - 

 @Mike 84C or @bantree may be able to give more info shortly - it looked rather nicer than I was expecting, I remember that much..

As far as I aware, they are simply a Cravens DMU repainted. SF do do one of the double ended GNRI BUT 700 series railcars. It is Worsley Works who do the Park Royal railcars.

Has anyone bought, tried out one of these yet? Considering a purchase.

Yes, I got an RTR version of the SF converted AEC 2600 push-pull trailer.  Very happy with it.  I push/pull it with an SF C class.  It came lightly weathered at no extra cost.

No, they look closer to the look of the AEC than the first batch offered by SF.

Yes. I bought mine a few years ago. There a lovely finish. But they don't run as good as Murphy's models unfortunately.

I agree with Baz808 the finish is very good, I think they run as  well as a normal Bachman DMU. It has had little use on the layout so far  but is going to Digi Trains to be chipped and have AEC sound fitted.
