J15 Early BR in O Gauge

This is a Loco purchased by a friend in LNER livery – my job was to turn it into a loco that was used on the Haughley to Laxfield branch before it closed in the early 50’s. Part of it is now called the called the Mid Suffolk Light Railway and operates on some re-laid track.

After research we discovered that 65447 was the Ipswich engine most photographed on the line on both Passenger, Goods and mixed Trains.

This Sunday 9/6/24 will be ‘The Middy’s’ O Gauge Exhibition and this Loco will be operating on a layout that I made about ten years ago and since sold to Graham. It is called Little Sefton – come and have a look – all proceeds go to the track extension.
