Completed Austerity WD 2-8-0, converted to the later Doncaster pattern firebox, for my Dad's layout - no couplings, but it still counts as finished!

Tatty Twenty

It's been a long time since I posted about class 20s on here but this is the progress so far with one of them - a very tatty class 20, 20104! My Dad's photo of the real thing at Frodingham, Scunthorpe in 1992 shows how much of a state the loco was in. It's very faded and its previous livery of BR blue showing through in many places.

The transfers are from Railtec (aside from the BR arrows which are Fox) and I can ehartily recommend Railtec's transfers - very, very impressed! It almost seemed a shame to cut away most of the 'Railfreight' logos to match the prototype!
