Another numbering session this week. Both Loco’s purchased some time ago and appropriate numbers selected after a lot of research. I have tried to pick loco’s that were a bit different from the loco’s as purchased.
The numbering was carried out using HMRS numbers and BR logo’s, plus Fox warning flashes, data panels and coupling codes.
The 26, being a Scottish engine has snowploughs fitted. In these days they were mostly Black , but I have seen some in mid Grey, undercoat perhaps. Speaking of snowploughs I believe some experiments took place, as I have seen a photo of a Class 31 with Red ploughs. Yellow ploughs became the norm in the early 70’s. Sadly just before my modelling era in O gauge.
Again I have not weathered them yet! I must catch up!
