LMS and BR (LMR) Models 6
No.54465 is a Pickersgill 113 class 4-4-0, originally built for
the Caledonian Railway, and part of the 'Dunalastair' series of locos. Taken
in to LMS stock at the Grouping, it survived to serve for British Railways,
and is seen here in the early 1950s lined black, mixed traffic livery. I
did not actually build this model - it was sent to me for restoration, from
a rather sad-looking, ex-Nu-Cast CR-liveried loco, to the transformation
you see here.
Another delightful little Johnson-designed 2-4-0 for the Midland Railway - similar to
the 1400 class loco featured on page 5, but this time with smaller driving wheels. The
body for this model is an old Ratio plastic kit, but fitted with a modern etched
chassis, Markits wheels and Mashima motor.
