My local catalogue surplus shop has a quantity of these sets for sale. Originally marked down from a list price of £229 to £150 . They are now offering them for £110.

There seem to be 2 sets one which contains a Merchant Navy and 3 new type pullmans and the other with a Black 5 and 3 Blood & Custard coaches which I was not sure of.

Anyone know anything about these as they are obviously not standard Hornby catalogue items.

e.g are the coaches with the Black 5 likely to be the newer gresleys ?

The one with the Pullmans isn't actually described as the Orient Express and I suspect like the Black 5 it is a catalogue(not the Hornby one) special issue. Unfortunately the boxes do not have the usual wrap around that comes with the Orient Express they seem to be just the big red boxes with drawers but no identifying labels. I could see enough of the Pullman set to know they were the new Pullmans with lights but I couldn't identify the Blood & Custard coaches.
