B17/6 Gayton Hall – 61641

This is a renumber, rename and re-logo job for my mate Mike. I think Mike has had the Loco for some time and he was researching an ideal identity for it based on the different quirks of the B17 build and/or works changes. I had to change the BR Logos as one was facing the wrong way and then number and name the Loco. The Loco in the late 50’s was based at 31B March Shed and carries this shed plate on the smokebox door.

The Makers Plates beneath the Nameplate still need to be ordered as Mike feels the ones he has purchased could be wrong. I also need to paint the safety valves and whistle a brass colour, it was a bit of a rush to get the below photos between showers hence not quite finished on photos.
