New Addition


Another new loco has been added to the rolling stock. This is a Standard Tank 4 MT repainted by Paul Thompson as BR 80135 in gloss Brunswick Green. This was supplied as a body only and Jamie Nelson provided the chassis from a 80054 which he had had as a kid albeit with missing screws for the body, front bogie and the valve mechanism. it had not run for 45 years but some WD 40 plus oil had it working beautifully within 20 minutes. A trip to Mike King for the missing screws and now we have a beautiful loco working very well and shown in the gallery on page 4. An excellent addition to the rolling stock.
