Hi All.

 

I have been reading this forum for a long time, but never signed up to post before now.

 

For anybody wondering, the RPSI still have some of their blue and cream Cravens coaches available.

 

I received a set in the post today, and I am a loooooong way from Ireland.

 

They are stunning!

Aaaaargh, there's a spy in the midst!

Yes, Tenerife, Canary Islands - not quite as exotic or distant as:

Very nice DJ, you’re not based in the Galápagos Islands by any chance, are you?

 

...but still far enough when you get a craving for Superquinn sausages, Tayto, King, Club Orange, red lemonade or cream soda...

Not exactly islands with a rich railway heritage, but we have trams (Alstom Citadis 302's), a handful of abandoned mine railways, had trams from about 1880 until about 1950, had a light dock railway, and there are talks ongoing about constructing a 1435mm gauge railway with two lines.

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, on the other hand, almost had a real railway built back in the seventies. They, too, are considering building a railway, but are talking about using 1668mm gauge.

Are they identical sets? I think there was talk of a potentially a second set of three if/when the first sold out, which they obviously haven't yet? I have a set somewhere.....

the second set has not been commisoned yet the original idea was the first set sells out then a second set is brought out but to date it hasn't seen the light of day

When I bought my sets, relatively recently, there were only something like four more sets left in stock, and the RPSI were considering their options as to a further set.

Yes, identical sets, to satisfy my OCD and to allow me run a longer rake. With both buffet cars facing opposite directions, and ignoring the running numbers, two sets look lovely on the track together.
