138 Ready For Action

Our third NGG16 is finally ready to enter service.

Himself tells me it took him most of a day's work to reassemble the locomotive after it had been split up to allow painting, with lots of fiddly jobs like reattaching pony wheels and soldering on the wires which connect the two power units and ensure even smoother running.

All 138 needs now is its number and works plates which are being etched for us by Narrow Planet.

As you can see from these pictures of it posed on the Cemetery Crossing segment of Bron Hebog it's going to look really striking at the head of a full-length WHR train at exhibitions.
