Great picture. What was your base Model for the conversion to 31 418?

 

31111? As I would like to do the same myself 

Hi. It’s the Hornby 31 102 (skinhead) and modelled as the un-refurbished 31 418 in early 1987, the Hornby model I found lacking the more prominent un-refurbished details such as the raised body stripe but still fitted the bill to convert to the 31/4, ETH jumper added and hopefully not too bad a representation of the celebrity machine.

Silly question what was 31 418 famous for and why was 31 102 called a skinhead - did it have braces and Boover boots

The skin head refers to not having the larger roof light unit fitted, it was a feature that not many class 31’s had and coupled with the white indicator disks gave that particular loco a individual look, it went on to be unofficially named Boadicea.

Did this loco go on to receive Fragonset black livery and do work for Wessex Trains?

I’m not sure that it did, I know that it’s going through a major restoration at Swanwick that’s been going on for some years now and includes putting back the bufferbeam skirting etc.

Not sure when it last ran but I think it must have been a good couple of decades ago now.

That is absolutely convincing. Well done sir.

 

Thanks for that.  Whilst I am part of the group that has built and exhibits the layout, I should point out that there is nothing in that photo that I made :)

That's a wonderful Scene, and also reminds me of the Exhibition Layout, Porthchulin, so much atmosphere.
