I am using components from the Finney Dean Goods to build this one which was designed to take a Portscap 1219 motor.  I have used the Brassmasters proposed replacement of a Mashima 1220 and High Level Road Runner plus with drive extender.  There is not much room to get this in particularly once you wire the motor! (I have since used thinner wire):

Nice header picture for the blog,  very evocative!

 

Thanks Mikkel.  It has been the photography of the period that has always drawn me to the pre-grouping era rather than any other.  

 

The shot is of Shrewsbury circa 1910 with a LNWR train behind a Precedent 2-4-0 in the far platform and GWR trains in platforms 5 and 8.

Agree with that. I used to wonder whether it was just black and white nostalgia, but  the recent colouring of period photos has only made my interest stronger.
