Peckett W4 No. 883. Research.

Mick Bonwick


Before starting on any weathering task, I look for photographs of the intended subject so that I can determine what needs to be done. It's not always possible to find the right condition at the right time in the subject's life, but a combination can usually be found that gives enough information.


Three opinions have been given on how this model should look when weathered. so this being a democratic society, we will go with the majority vote and make it well used but looked after. I have some books of photographs by Gordon Edgar that have industrial subjects in them, and will now spend a few hours looking for black saddle tanks that have been cared for. I wonder how many I'll find . .. ... ....

Mick, if you go to the thread on The Lilleshall Company in the Industrial Railways section of RM Web there are plenty of photos of Lilleshall No 19 (Works no 883).
