Mid Suffolk Light Railway – might have been?

This was an O gauge kit built loco that arrived with me in undercoat with the instruction to make it look like a MSLR loco. This type of Loco never ran on ‘The Middy’ so it fell into the what might have been category.

After some reasearch and advise, I formed a plan to mix up the paint colour and purchase some transfers in the correct typeface. This achieved I jumped into the unknown! Here are the results, the loco is numbered ‘4’ as the actual loco’s were 1 – 3 and so logically any additional loco would have been 4 in theory!




This Loco was built to a reasonable standard but was not always ‘square’. There was also a couple of missing pieces I had to replace. Overall not to bad – a good exercise in imagination!
