GWR and BR (WR) Models 19


No.3245 is a Dean 3232 Class 2-4-0, seen here in the lovely Indian red-framed livery of the early 20th Century.  This shows a loco in practically the as-built condition for this class - round-topped firebox, large-spectacled cab front, 'wooden' cab roof, and open coal rails to the tender.  Later on in their lives, these locos were given Belpair fireboxes, which necessitated a smaller-spectacled cab front.  They were then fitted with a metal cab roof, and the open coal rails were replaced with the later-pattered solid raves to the top of the tender sides.  Built from a Brassmasters kit.
