Latest re-paint from Colin Tyler

Matthew Cousins



A couple of years ago I bought a D49 named as Rutlandshire in LNER green and found that as it had been built as a display model really, as although is was nice the paint worked flaked (not properly primed) and valve gear had problems.

I decided that I would have the loco as Hertfordshire and then have it in very early BR days and also paired it with an almost correct second hand ex-GC tender that is similar to that which was attached to that D49.

I am using the group standard tender from this loco to go with a J39 that I'm messing about with - a half made set of parts that came without a tender - pics to follow sometime.

Colin's paint job is as good as ever and transforms the model.
