GWR and BR (WR) Models 17
An interesting conversion project, performed
by a customer, and sent to me for painting.. Based on a Hornby 'Railroad'
model, this is No.3802 "County Clare", one of the original versions
of G.J.Churchward's 4-4-0 'County' class locos, with straight footplate
along under the cab, and square drop-down section ahead of the smokebox,
leading to the buffer beam. Painted here in the 1920's livery for these
locos, unlined pre-1928 green.
This delightful little vehicle is a 13 Ton, Dia. AA7 'Toad' brake van - basically a
shortened version of the standard AA3 vans, with only a 9 ft. wheelbase, 16 ft
over headstocks, and a
proportionally smaller verandah. Built circa 1898, and originally stationed at
Acton, for use on the Metropolitan Railway's lines into London. Built from
a Connoisseur Models kit.
