Ivatt 4MT in OO Gauge

This is a Loco that used to run on a layout that I sold several years ago. Since then it has just been stored awaiting a new project that so far has not materialised. It has now been serviced, re-numbered and BR Logo changed to an early crest. It should be going to a new home soon. It is lightly weathered, has a lamp added, Screw couplings and pipes and has real coal.

Four Stratford (SF) 47’s

Today I am going back to the late 80’s – early 90’s. During this time Stratford gathered a diverse collection of Class 47’s released from other duties. When I saw them they were mostly on Engineering trains, but they are likely to have been on a variety of trains. From what I can remember they always seem to have been very well looked after hence my models are only light to medium weathered. I have also picked locos that were not manufactured by the mainstream modelling industry, 47711 excepted.

All the Locos are first generation OO Heljan and have buffer beam details at one end and tension lock at the other. Again it is hoped they may run on ‘Osier Fen’ Layout, if not they will be sold.

Back to OO – Class 47’s weathered.

Here are two original Heljan Class 47’s that I detailed about ten years ago for a proposed new layout. This layout never happened and after detailing I just put them away. I am hoping that these will eventually run on my new OO layout Osier Fen, if not be sold.

In fact I detailed about twenty Locos at that time and I hope to work through them during lockdown and weather the lot! Watch this space!

Both Locos are light to medium weathering. They have one ends buffer beams super detailed and the other ends with tension locks left.
