Heljan Metropilitan BoBo

Ordered a Heljan Metropolitan (Vickers?) BoBo on Saturday from Hattons at £74 - looks like a 'bargain.' Has anybody else got one of these?

My excuse for buying (other than I like the looks - not pretty, but a nice example of the era, and the price) is that I can put my GWR clerestories behind it with some sort of justification in that I believe they were used to pull GWR trains from Paddington to 'the city.'
The one I've ordered appears to have Aylesbury / Liverpool St. on the 'blinds' - not exactly appropriate but with my eyesight being what it is that probably won't matter - but does anybody know what it should have - Paddington and where?

Hi SRman,
Those Hatton's offers are quite a bargain and the information you provided is interesting on how and why they operated. I'm a bit confused about how the Graham Farrish coaches are involved, I must be missing some information somewhere.

Kind regards
