GWR and BR (WR) Models 4
No.6014 "King Henry VII" as streamlined in 1935 for,
it has to be said, no other reason than publicity. This conversion of a
standard Hornby model was done for a customer who 'just wanted something
A 'Dukedog' or 'Earl' class loco, constructed from a Nu-Cast
No.6848 "Toddington Grange" constructed from a Westward
Another one of Churchward's handsome 47XX class 2-8-0s, No.4706
was built from a Falcon Brassworks kit.
This is one of the 'Bird' series of 'Bulldog' Class locos, No.3454
"Skylark". A Nu-Cast kit, painted in post-war GWR livery.
This little beauty is a 517 Class 0-4-2 tank. They were I suppose,
the forerunners of the ever-popular 48xx (later 14xx) Collett auto-tanks
(see page 6). This is a model of no.1473 "Fair Rosamund", which
was a regular performer on the Woodstock branch in Oxfordshire until withdrawal
in 1935. 'She' was constructed from an Alan Gibson kit. For you history
buffs, the human "Fair Rosamund" was a mistress of King Henry
II (I've no idea if she was a little beauty too I'm afraid!). Another version
of this kit can be found on page 7.
