Having done a lined blue pannier, I might as well continue the heresies...

 

I am a big fan of ex-mainline locos sold into industry, I think I own all the RTR industrial panniers (London Transport, Stephenson Clarke, NCB 7754, plus the strangely alluring film GN&SR film star) as well as the yellow Jinty.

Since pannier chassis are always in demand, there are plenty of spare bodies around. My ones share 3 chassis between 5 locos.

 

On my fictional railway system are the expansive China Clay workings, where the two tiny Bagnalls work. A Hunslet 50550 deals with trip workings to and from the port, supplemented in 1957 with an ex-GWR 8750 (as far as I know 1957 is the earliest year one of this class was withdrawn, so I'm giving No.8755 a slightly extended lifespan than it got in real life).

 

Standard Bachmann body, nice details, a minimum of prep needed.

Sprayed with grey primer, have learnt my lesson with yellow and lots of thin coats were applied. The colour is Rover Inca Yellow in a rattle can from Halfords.

As Black is the easiest colour to touch in, I try to avoid fiddly masking and just go over the overspray with black acrylic afterwards. The majority of my masking is just to cover large areas.

Standard Fox Transfers for the lining and letters. This particular batch really had trouble setting, to the extent that it tried to peel off while I was weathering...

After a light weathering wash, quite pleased with the result. Here in a line up of SCC motive power. Need to order some numberplates.

The NWR's own blue pannier sneaking into the back of shot.

Needs a rear vac. pipe too. Anything else an industrial pannier should have?

Perhaps it should be fitted with a generator and headlight like its colleague from Leeds...

Stevie Clarkes owned a loco? Anymore details please, worked for them for a number of years, never knew this.

Yes it was the now-preserved 3650. Pictured above when it had last been overhauled and ran in the blue for a short while.


I was lucky enough to get a Bachmann limited edition of this loco - think it was a collectors' club one.

Thanks so much for that, Stevies was owned by Powell Duffryn from about 1929, but maintained some autonomy. Stephenson Clarke Shipping finished about 10 years ago after 275 years of shipping coal.

A delivery from Narrow Planet is always a welcome one! On this occasion it included some rather lovely number plates for the SCC pannier.

Did the panniers in industrial us retain their vacuum pipes?

Most industrial tank engines were never fitted with vacuum pipes until preservation as the majority of wagons they moved were unfitted.

It looks like 7754 and 9792 had their vacuum gear removed so I should probably tidy up the rear bumper and remove the one on the front. Alternatively I could add it to the 50550 but not sure at the moment, it sounds more realistic to me to have them unfitted.
