OO Gauge WD J94 0-6-0

I was given a Industrial J94 in Blue and Yellow Livery – I was asked to produce this Loco as it worked at Chesterton Junction, Cambridge in 1946 to 1952. I was given a couple of B & W photos and some research notes. The friend that gave me this task remembered this Loco when he was a lad in the late 40’s.

The transfers were purchased from Railtec and paints were Humbrol and Railmatch.

I must admit I had never heard of this Loco until approached to repaint and model it. I was told it only worked on MOD traffic within the large yard confines.

This what I started with.

Refurb and weather-Black 5-O Gauge

I have done a refurbishment and weathering of this rather rough Black Five. It has not been an easy job as the bulk of the loco has rather crudely been put together with super glue and epoxy resin instead of soldering! I have continued using these glues doing refurbishment as I had no other choice. I am very pleased with the outcome considering the constraints – it will look good sitting on a Steam Shed Layout – a lot of running could cause other problems.
