This fireless loco from Liliput comes DCC ready, low gearing and external valve gear. At £35 from Ebay it was just too good to miss.I was considering the chassis under an Avon side but instead, I decided to anglicise it for my South Wales layout's fictional steel pipe manufacturer.
I removed the lighting and boiler fittings, then anglicised the cab,added a bell,charging pipework,steps,garter blue paint and enamel discs for the owners identifying mark finish the job. The boiler vessel has been reduced by 4mm in length also. Yes those buffers are 8mm drawing pins.
The finished product,just steps and handrails to fit.
