K3 61801 in O Gauge

Again a purchase that had been hanging around for a couple of years. I thought this was going to be the least complicated of the recent batch but it did not turn out that way! When purchased this Loco was in LNER lined Black, and I just wanted to change it to BR lined black. Well I think the transfers were ‘welded’ on, they just would not budge. It was therefore another complete strip down, then repaint.

After repainting, lining and numbering, I must admit it all turned out very well and I am very pleased.

61801 was a Cambridge and March engine for many years.
