J69 update from LNER to BR

This is the last Loco of my holiday re-paints and probably my favourite. I purchased this Loco in full LNER livery with condensing systems and early safety valves. I have now stripped off all the equipment that is not required for a BR variant and added new items. I then repainted and renumbered as necessary. Note this Loco has a lowered cab roof and is made of canvas.

This actual Loco did spend some time in Scotland in the forties but is pure GE in origin. There was some amendments carried out to help shunting, this included enlarged cab steps and an extra hand rail – I have not done these mods as I am still researching and hope to find the right logo for a GE only variety, so that a further renumbering may take place.
