North Eastern Class U
Quiet Sundays at work allowed me to get on with another loco for Botanic Gardens. It's been in quite an advanced state for quite a while but I needed a bit of a push to get it moving again. Only a few small items now remain; these small details are really important, I feel, on North Eastern locos. Their clean, simple and elegant lines make for a very 'clean' appearance, so these details are what really add character though they require a little subtly to be effective.
I'm rather pleased with its progress, but the worst it yet to come... lining! It almost makes me wish that Botainic Gardens was set in BR days, these would have been plain black by then!
