There was a complaint received recently - or perhaps we should give it the benefit of the doubt and call it a comment - that there are not enough photos of our models on the blog.
Well, we pride ourselves on responsiveness to our audience, so please allow us to spam you with a series of snaps taken of our Darjeeling C class pacific out for a wee test run after it's reassembly.
The purpose was twofold.
As well as testing the running of the locomotive we were also using a engine with tiny wee bogie wheels to test the board joints after the work to realign them.
I do think it's a lovely looking locomotive and although totally unprototypical for the WHR we make no apologies for invoking Rule Number 1.
Such a shame the real ones are stuff and mounted in India because I can't help thinking they'd go very nicely on the WHR - like souped-up Penrhyn Ladies on the FR.
