  1. 31409 on the "Last direct train from Halifax to London KX" on 6th May 1978. Rob Fraser Photo / copyright railimagecollections
  2. And I would dearly like to see this recreated in Z, N, OO, O, or any scale you wish to imagine !
  3. okay - you wanted another view..... here’s an alternative view of “Stacker” Steadman’s.... erm... handiwork
  4. http://www.railphotoarchive.org/PhotoViewerV5.php?img=0146020873000&fbclid=IwAR2y8OEHFCdE3ygD31Ul-EbTx801JLoNP63ZsVX7Q7xraLCZqdwiOY-MtF4
  5. The LH ETH socket is slightly angled on the real peak
  6. it was Colin Massingham, Chris Guntripp and a chap from South Wales called Richard (whose surname escapes me). Mike Jacobs then came on the scene when the loco moved (by rail) to Matlock in 1986 which was when I got involved plus a few others.
  7. These 2 photos were Reputedly taken on the same day by ER Morten - 5th September 1951 You’ll notice there are only 2 “adornments” over each cab but 1 pair are close together over the centre window but on the opposite end the pair are just to the outside of the centre window frames. however the loco is 4-8-4 On the former and looks to be 4-4-4-4 On the latter. This is probably a mistake on the dates but Morten was quite careful with his picture logs!
  8. Latest CADs - please don't shoot the messenger !
  9. I know it's in 2mm scale but have you been following this ?
