A4 60009 Union of South Africa ( name & numbered!)

Tay Bridge



Hi Folks


Tonight I tackled fitting my A4 Falcon(OOOOPS! Meant Sparrow Hawk- I sold Falcon from pack and bought Sparrow Hawk to get Double chimney) with its new identity. She is now resplendent in her new etched Union of South Africa name plates with the springbok plate on one side only as per prototype. After rubbing out the numbers on the cabside with T cut I have applied the correct 60009 cabside numbers. I have also fitted an etched 60009 number over the existing smokebox number. To me she looks almost perfect. Time warp back to late 70s and very early 80s when she used to appear at the Leuchars Airshow.


Here she is having her first run under steam with her new identity complete.
