I purchased two of these Loco’s from a well known ‘Box Shifter’ – they were advertised as ‘Y3’ which is what I wanted. I wish I had done my research first before purchasing!! When they arrived I realised the mistake, they were Y1. I left one as No.39 as It was an East Anglian Loco, being based at both Lowestoft and Cambridge. and changed the second one to No.4 which was a Doncaster Loco, a bit out of my modelled area!
Both Loco’s had their buffer beams painted red as prototype. And both had real coal added to the hopper.
No.39 had a modified coal hopper side, so the model is not strictly correct.
The O Gauge Fox Transfers I used on No.4 are to large – I would suggest buying OO as they are nearer the correct size.
I hope to correct them at a later date.
