Today I am going back to the late 80’s – early 90’s. During this time Stratford gathered a diverse collection of Class 47’s released from other duties. When I saw them they were mostly on Engineering trains, but they are likely to have been on a variety of trains. From what I can remember they always seem to have been very well looked after hence my models are only light to medium weathered. I have also picked locos that were not manufactured by the mainstream modelling industry, 47711 excepted.
All the Locos are first generation OO Heljan and have buffer beam details at one end and tension lock at the other. Again it is hoped they may run on ‘Osier Fen’ Layout, if not they will be sold.
