I was so pleased with the outcome of my first proper attempt at scratchbuilding that I am doing another scratchbuild in 4mm. I posted a couple of "Grand Designs" for my next layout and have now decided that it will be the 1900s-1920s coal and clay layout, so more motive power will be needed for this. I already have the Manning Wardle class H and a Hornby Peckett W4 is on order but something different is next on the list... This one will be a Bagnall wing tank. I have enough information now to have made up drawings using photos and illustrations of three out of the four that were built to standard gauge, plus known dimensions. The cylinder size, wheelbase and cab/bunker style are the same as on ordinary 12-inch Bagnall saddletanks and so a General Arrangement drawing of one of these has been adapted. The model will be closely based on W/n1392 of 1892.
