GWR and BR (WR) Models 7
No.5744 was a Didcot engine in the late
1950s, and was fitted with this spark-arresting chimney to enable it to
safely work the provender stores there. This was a very easy modification
of a standard Bachmann model - just replace the chimney.
This beautiful loco is Dean Single no.3013
"Great Britain", and is arguably one of the most stylish and elegant
locos ever constructed. Constructed from a Model and Leisure kit - sadly
no longer in production.
No.7239 is one of my locos, and is a detailed
version of the very popular Nu-Cast kit.
This is an ex-Barry Railway 'J' Class 2-4-2T,
built using a Redcraft kit.
This little beauty is a 'River' class 2-4-0.
A William Dean design, it is one of a class of eight locos reconstructed
from old single-wheelers, which were themselves renewals of even older Gooch
engines, and originally used for express passenger duties in the late 19th
century. This model was built by a customer from a Peter K kit, and sent
to me for painting.
This is no.1473 "Fair Rosamund"
again (see page 4), only this time in a slightly earlier guise, with an
open cab and a straight, upright bunker back. You will also notice that
the number plate is in a different place, and the whistles are different
too - quite authentic, as a 1921 vintage photograph was copied. This model
was built using an Alan Gibson kit as before, and all these variations (and
indeed others too) can be accommodated in this kit.
