Hi All.  I have just been looking at websites again, and have just read something Strange??  Some carriages  are described as Pliastic,, and other are described as Polystyrene . Could that be correct? All my carriages seem to be of the same material.  Kevin

Kevin, when I typed in Google this
"Network South East TSO carriage"
all I got was your two posts

and if you are finding the words plastic  or Polystyrene on a web page, the one I found was in E-bay - therefore not necessarily correct  - the info from the Bachmann website would be more accurate & I would say they are plastic.
So why not ask Bachmann themselves quoting the item number.

Hi Ron.    Thank you for your reply.   The fact is, that I want to buy a TSO that for some reason has come from a         4 Car 211 4 CEP , although why someone would want to do that, escapes me, but , it ha happened before.
When Kernow and Bachmann got together and produced the "205 DEMU Thumper" they only made two car units.
A "Big Mistake" IMHO, I have two identical 205's , an error on my part? But if I cold buy a suitable TSO trailer?
Then I would run it as a Three Car Set. Not perfect but it would do me.   All the best. Kevin

Plastic quote...
Plastic is material consisting of any of a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic organic compounds that are malleable and so can be molded into solid objects. Plasticity is the general property of all materials which can deform irreversibly without breaking but, in the class of moldable polymers, this occurs to such a degree that their actual name derives from this ability.

Which means Polystyrene is plastic..

"Polystyrene" comes in many different forms Kevin.

The drinks cups, soft food trays and packaging stuff are "expanded" polystyrene - made by treating styrene beads with heat and water combined with other chemicals (phenols and/or formaldehydes) then arresting the "foaming" process with yet more chemicals.  EPS comes in all densities from very soft to extremely hard.

It all starts off as styrene - actually, it all starts off as crude oil !!  Clever stuff this hydrocarbon chemistry.............. :roll: :roll:
