Thanks to Dave (Max Stafford) I have acquired another Jubilee for Leaman Road. It was over the last month that I realised I could utilise a number of these 4-6-0s from several sheds London Midland Sheds. Below is 45590 ‘TRAVANCORE’ of Sheffield Millhouses. All detailing has been added and a coat of Klear and only requires weathering.
Bachmann have only produced the ‘short firebox version’ but I have plans to make a ‘long firebox’ version while retaining the Bachmann running plate and cab. The result will hopefully produce 45717 ‘DAUNTLESS’ of Bank Hall to haul the Liverpool Exchange service to York.
