So I've been mulling this idea over for some time now and I think I am about ready to take the plunge.
I'm just posting here first to ask other peoples impressions/comments.

I've got Edward all DCC'd but just pulling red coaches isn't enough.
After a bit of thinking I realized that one could part out Emily's coaches and combine them
with the Red Coaches.
I'd take the Red Coach roof and put it on one of Emily's carriages. Then I would just need to
fill in the front and rear ends of the coach with a putty or something and sand it down.
After that the coach would get a proper paint job and then it should be good to go.

With all that being said I want to know what you guys think?
Any recommendations on a filler for the gaps at both ends of the carriage and colors for the paint scheme would be greatly appreciated.

Alternatively you could just paint the red Coaches.

I know the coaches you're talking about, and neither proposed route will get you a true match. The Old Coaches, as they are officially named, are actually Great Eastern Railway 4-wheel coaches designed by Holden. So your best option would actually be to buy and paint up models of those.
