50008 Thunderer in O Gauge

This is Thunderer updated to as running for ‘Hanson and Hall’ as a heritage Locomotive. It has been used to transport various items of rolling stock around the country, that included a visit to East Anglia. It is still running now in this condition albeit with some of the owners stickers on the bodysides.

If any transfer makers ever do the ‘Hansen and Hall’ decals then I would add them, but it did run in 2018-19 without them.

The upgrade consisted of changing the O/H warning stickers to the current type, adding kicker plates strips below the doors and painting the lamp irons white. The Loco now appears to be air braked only, but I have not removed the vacuum pipes so that I could move it backwards to the early 90’s if required.

The nameplates are from Proto Neo and the transfers are from Railtec.
