GWR 64XX Class 0-6-0 Pannier Tank No.6420

Yes it got lost on large tenders and it doesn't stand out too well even on a Pannier Tank, but the GWR roundel is a stylish piece of design.
Undoubtedly it looked its best on coaching stock, the streamlined diesel railcars and especially the 'Brown Stock' - it's almost enough to turn me all Brown and Cream ... but not quite.

 

Green: Phoenix P10; Transfers: HMRS Pressfix; Numberplates: Modelmaster (again).
That little bit of pipework picked out in brass paint just in front of the cab was inspired by a couple of photos of these locos that Martin Welch has on his excellent website.
It's not much but it just lifts the otherwise dull black and green ensemble.
