The branch passenger service now arriving...

Fen End Pit


I finally got around to fitting the buffers, crew and coal to my E4. I also converted the bogies on my second Hornby Gresley to make a nice short branch passenger train.




I'd be tempted by the 3rd coach, possibly seeing if there is something suitable in the Ian Kirk/Cooper craft range may be an LNER 51' Non-Corridor Full Third ?


I'm not sure what the typical make up of train down the Stour Valley might have been.




I'm rather pleased with the way this kit went together, I've now pretty much completed the must have GER locos just in time for Hornby to introduce them all!

That looks fantastic. I really like the look of the E4s. The whole train has so much character and style - a good example that BR steam could be as characterful as pregrouping days.

Very nice David. Many photos show 2 coach trains in a mash of Gresley and Thompson non-vestibule stock. One shows a Thompson 5-compt brake dia.361 paired with a Gresley lav compo dia.244. A close up of another train shows Dia 244. no E88228E.
