31169 in 1976 condition

I did a lot of research to find the ideal loco in its original condition in the mid 70’s. I found a great photo of 169 in exactly the right condition in 1978. This must have been one of the last 31’s to have the nose doors changed and the boiler footsteps plated.

The change from pre-tops to Tops was relatively easy and after renumbering I re-weathered the Loco.
