Industrial, Military, and Minor-Railway Models 2
This is another Manning Wardle Class 'i' loco (compare the picture of "Siwan" on page 1), only this time in an earlier guise, with no cab, just a weatherboard for meagre protection of the crew. Built, as before, from an RT Models kit, and fitted with bespoke "Goneril" nameplates from Guilplates.
Yet another Manning Wardle saddle tank - this time a Class 'k', and again with a simple weatherboard instead of a proper cab. Built from an RT Models kit, with bespoke "Cordelia" nameplates from Guilplates.
"Beinn Alligin" is a Hudswell-Clarke 0-4-0ST, of a type built in the firm's Leeds factory from the early 1900s onwards, and found in a variety of industrial locations until the 1970s. Inevitably, with such a long lifespan there were many variations over the years, and some can be built from this particular kit, which is from Agenoria Models. It is finished in my customer's requested plain black livery, and fitted with bespoke nameplates from Guilplates.
This is an Avonside SS 0-4-0ST. Built in that company's Bristol works in 1898, it was purchased by the Alexandra Docks & Railway Co. in Newport, given the name "Trojan" , and was used on shunting duties for many years. The ADR was absorbed into GWR in 1922, and "Trojan" was allotted the running number 1340, whilst keeping its name. It is currently preserved, although with different boiler fittings (it lost its dome, and has different safety valves) in GWR livery, at Didcot Railway Centre. This model was built using an Agenoria Models kit, and as can be seen, has been finished in the plain black livery requested by my customer, and fitted with bespoke "Beinn Eighe" nameplates from Guilplates.
This is a Hawthorne-Leslie 14 inch 0-6-0ST, of a type produced by the company between 1905 and 1954. Built from a High Level kit, finished here in the plain black livery requested by my customer, and fitted with bespoke "Liathach" etched-brass nameplates manufactured by Guilplates.
