Lyme Regis

Three pictures have been posted on the Hornby Gallery of the latest acquisition. This is Bullied West Country class pacific, Lyme Regis made by Wrenn. It has been converted to 3 rail by Mike King. The conversion, like my Wrenn Merchant Navy, does not involve changing the wheels. This means that one set of wheels remains insulated which does give problems when going slowly over HD points. The loco stops and has to be helped by the hand of god but at running speeds there is no problem. It has been given three Pullman coaches by Wrenn as these have the same type of couplings. Their problem is that they have had their roofs painted black at some time so I have to decide whether to try and remove the paint or leave them as they are – a decision for laters.
