You can thank Mallard 75 for this!
After seeing all 6 A4s (In particular the 3 in Garter Blue) it made me realise that a second operating period for Leaman Road would be very interesting. I’ve decided that 1938 would be a good year with the final A4s were just being out shopped and York had an allocation of 4 Gresley A1s.
Here is a teaser of what is to appear, but what strikes me with 1938 is the mass of different locos allocated to York. K3s, C1s, C7s, A7s and even a Q7.
I’m not rushing into this and will build stock up gradually (a lot requiring kit building) and will take my time but should be an interesting alternative to 1950.
