This is another one of my Locos and it Carry’s the most sentimental value to me. It was bought at an auction with a job lot and it was pretty tatty to say the least, and my dad won’t put any old shit out.
He made a simple spray paint jig out of metal for the body at work, which allowed him to rotate the body easily. Ok its not rocket science to spray a solid black tank and then do the front and rear buffer beams, but getting the paintwork perfect is the hard bit, and to my eye it looks fine. Its even got the official Hornby transfers on.
This is the less common of the LMS tanks as it has the more styled font type on.
This little tank always runs really well and never gives any problems.
