This is a set of 3 passenger cars in the Arriva alex paint scheme.
All three are 2nd class. One is a Silberling Bn 719, one is restaurant of type WR 132 and, the third is a m-Wagen.
There is a hefty bag of parts to be added to each coach by the modeler. All three have electrical contacts at the wheels for lighting to be installed if so chosen.
Paint and detail is standard Tillig quality - very good. There is very little rolling resistance. All are equipped with the latest Tillig couplers so a coupled pair of cars has about 1mm of space left between them.
The only gripe is the Silberling which is not as good as the Kuehn version and sits a bit too high on it's trucks (all Tillig Silberling models do this).
There are two pages of instructions and diagrams for each car written only in German.
This set fits with the Piko Arriva ER20 or the Kuehn 4 piece Arriva set seen here kuehn-arriva-alex-set-model-21010-t485.html.
Very nice set overall but if you are attaching it to the Kuehn set, don't couple the Tillig and Kuehn Silberlings to each other as they are visually different.

Sorry for the yellow background - it's white in real life. My photo skills are evidently lacking.....

For the yeallow background colour - if your camera has custom white balance, it's the easiest thing to do. Otherwise, the "auto levels" adjustment in photo software (even in MS Office Picture Manager) could do the job.
