Hello,

 

This is my model of a Bowen-Cooke 0-8-2T. Its made from a shot-down to 2mm scale Brassmasters etched kit, with a chassis I designed and had etched.

The model is finished in its early BR Springs Branch condition, from where it was withdrawn in 1953. The chimney, dome and safety valves are N Brass castings.

The loco is powered with a Faulhaber 1016 coreless motor, driving a 30:1 worm gear and 28:1 and 21:1 spur gears. These gears, the wheels and axle muffs are supplied by the Two Millimetre Scale Association.

I meant to post this  shot of Nigel's big tank on Tucking Mill shed several days ago but couldn't find the pictures. She runs as good as she looks and would have been perfect for the coal traffic in the Cam Valley although I suspect she may have been a tad heavy!
