SR and BR (SR) Models 14

 

Marsh H1 'Atlantic' no.2037 "Selsey Bill" in Bullied's plain black livery common during World War II. Built from a DJH kit.

 

No.258 is a South East and Chatham Railway O1 class, in that company's post-WW1 grey livery. Built using a Golden Arrow resin loco body and tender kit, fitted to a Hornby chassis.

 

 

A Drummond L11 - basically a smaller-wheeled version of a wide-cabbed, express passenger T9 from the same designer, but intended for mixed traffic duties. This loco was constructed from a highly-detailed Martin Finney kit, which needed extensive chassis modifications to enable me to get the model to traverse the 24 inch radius curves that rule on my customer's layout - prospective owners beware!

 

This charming little loco, no.756 "A.S.Harris", was built by Hawthorn-Leslie in 1908 for the newly-opened Plymouth, Devonport & South Western Junction Railway. This company was amalgamated into the London South Western Railway, and then the Southern Railway at the Grouping in 1923. Despite many owners, and therefore livery changes, it always carried its name. It was withdrawn from service in 1951. Built from a CSP Models / Agenoria kit.

 

Another Hawthorne-Leslie loco, 0-6-2T no.757 "Earl of Mount Edgcumbe" was also originally a PD&SWJR purchase. This, and sister engine no.758 "Lord St. Leven" lasted well into BR days, eventually carrying the mixed-traffic lined black livery, before being withdrawn in 1956. Also a CSP / Agenoria kit.

 

No.318 is an M7 0-4-4T, seen here wearing the livery of the man who designed it - Dugald Drummond, who, when this loco was outshopped from Nine Elms works in 1898, was Chief Mechanical Engineer of the London & South Western Railway. Based on a South Eastern Finecast kit, this particular model however, needed certain modifications from the standard kit - open coal rails around the top of the bunker, and front driving-wheel splashers which did not incorporate the sandboxes of the later-built examples, which is how the kit is supplied. Bespoke LSWR number plates by Guilplates. Interesting project, and a lovely livery.
