I’ve not had a chance to do any modelling this week, so for today’s update here are a few more pictures from last month in Greenock.
Linda and Blanche spent most of the weekend coupled together hauling FR sets.
Both these locos are built from Backwoods kits which were not without their faults.
The tender for Blanche, as supplied, was too short and the domes too small, both of which we found work arounds for.
We finished our Linda in the midnight blue livery she wore in the 90s for the sake of being different, but it would be nice to one day get another in traditional FR green or even PQR black.
I’m sure before too long someone will come up with an RTR model of them, don’t you reckon?
