Scottish J83 O-6-0T

This is my latest reconditioning job, I purchased this Loco over five years ago in a bit of a state paint wise, although it was a good runner with a good motor and multistage gearbox.

I stripped all the blistered and runny paintwork and did a partial repaint, I then put new BR logos and numbers on. Finally I gave it a medium weathering to blend all the reconditioned work.

Note this loco had a lengthened Cab bottom footstep and an extra handrail so that shunters could ride on the loco, I believe this was quite common on Scottish shunting Locos.
