There were four of 'em at Bromsgrove and Midland men always used to say that just one of 'em could take 20 bogies up the Lickey on it's own, with just a shovel full of dust in the back corners.

 

They had eighteen of 'em at Yeovil Jct, which were put there at the pleasure of Ivan Petersfield and his chum, Norman Locksmith. Ivo would have a regular bet with Norman as to which one would be working the Sidmouth Goods on any given day. Poor Norman never realised that Ivan used to bribe the shed foreman at Yeovil to put his favourite Barclay 'Brunhilde' on that working.

 

That same diagram wot worked past SOS Jct then used to work a Wednesdays only pick-up goods (every second month with a 'G' in its name) down to Mutton and back. Not a lot of people know that.

Them Barclays is Jocko's..............I remember them at Bromsgrove, pre the fat panniers that often offended.

I've been asked to do a side by side comparison of the Hatton's Andrew Barclay and the Hornby W4 Peckett tanks and I'm happy to oblige here. Seen on shed at Tigley with 6417 also present.

Mr Duck they did run on other types of bogie besides, the 7' & 9' Collett one's as well.

 

Rob is that County Hornby's latest offering ?, I take it TBG has attacked it with the airbrush.

 

Well overpriced imo. :o

That's the trouble with Limited Editions every one takes the p!ss with the prices and Kernow are way OTT with those.  :nono:

Yes thanks for that. I have had a good time this evening looking at my few reference books. Underframes and under gubbins varied too. Only outside frame survivor seems to be at the SVR Railway and looks really smart.

I also now need to find my only pic of a U Class at SJ. It was one of the Yeovil engines AFAIK and it was shutting the Dairy in the pic.

I can never fathom why the Saints dont score higher. Probably the most significant prototype in British locomotive development surely deserves to have a decent model produced.

The Hawksworth County was fourth most requested GWR loco [behind the 15xx and Saint] and here are a few more shots to celebrate the fact.

Well, conceptually Darling, I'm surprised that no one's mentioned yet that the contextual yet mechanical mark-making of the purity of line brings within the realm of discourse the remarkable handling of light and shade within the artifice of cute little Pecketts.

Posted 10 November 2018 - 17:30

At the risk of moi being ever so slightly controversial on such an esteemed GW thread I have to say that the County isn't one of my favourite locomotives turned out by Swindon.

 

I much prefer the Saint to said County Class.

 

I think it is purely the straight nameplate that strangely makes it less aesthetically pleasing for me as apposed to a nicely curved nameplate.

 

There I've said it !

My favourite GWR class of loco is the pannier.

 

Any pannier.

 

And fish and chips.
