I have no  photographic evidence to suggest  that a 22xx was ever fitted to a 2500 g tender.

 

Similarly, I have no photographic evidence to show that the 22xx + 4000 g ex RoD tender combination ever found it's way onto ex Cambrian metals.

 

 

 

2500g tender may have been fitted, hard to tell from the photos I have though.

 

ROD tenders did make it to the Cambrian section, I have a photo of 3206 in GW livery in 1948 at Machynlleth.

Beware of 3000g 'Dean' tenders running with 2251s, particularly in their later years. Most of them had replacement Churchward or Collett underframes. Some of these had vacuum tanks, which was very rare for a 3000g.

At which I give a sigh of relief given Bachmann had them as out of stock rather than pending stock just a couple of weeks back.

 

Mine is coming from Rails when they get theirs.

Does the model really have the shiny coupling rod shown in the Hattons photograph (post 29)? It seems a retrograde step.

Haven't you got a pot of dirty black paint and a paintbrush?

The whole loco is quite shinny! Looks very shiny when you sit it next the the Oxford Dean Goods.
