LMS and BR (LMR) Models 2

 

No.2290 is of course, "Big Bertha", the famous Lickey banker, in Midland Railway livery, from a DJH kit.

 

No.2156 is one of the "Tilbury Tanks", constructed from a Nu-Cast kit.

 

An old, and no-longer-available, K's kit was the basis of this very elegant Midland Railway "Spinner". I stress 'basis', because the kit had to be constructed to EM gauge standards for this particular project, and also modified for loco-power as opposed to tender-power of the original kit. More work than I bargained for, I must admit - turned out nice though! This model wears the Victorian-era version of the Midland Railway livery - for another 'Spinner', in the later, Deeley-era livery, see page 4.

 

A Beyer-Peacock "Metro" tank in the lined-green Victorian livery of the London and North Western Railway. This model was built from an IKB Models kit.

 

Another LNWR loco. This time a Precursor tank in the more well-known lined black livery. Built from a GEM kit.

 

Another LNWR GEM kit, this time one of the famous "Cauliflower" goods locos.
