I was looking for something a bit different to run in my 2020 -22 Era and after a little research I decided to go for 31128 as running now. This is the only Class 31 with a mainline certificate running at present.
I purchased a 31/4 and then worked it back to a 31/1. This involved removing the ETH fitments and filling the spaces left before smoothing and painting.
The next job was to make it into 31128. After looking up photos of both sides I started to convert the Loco, moving the BR Logos, adding the makers plate/nameplates and varnishing.
The Nameplates are SHAWPLAN – The makers plates are RAILTEC – The transfers are HMRS and FOX
Sadly the 31/4 does not come with snowploughs as carried by 31128 at present – but I will try and source some. It will also receive a light weathering.
