I’ve just finished this rather nice Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway 0-4-0ST for a friend.
The L&Y were noted for a real pride in the appearance of their motive power and this is the finish my friend requested; that of a machine that although well used received a lot of care and attention. In all probability it was assigned a regular crew who would have been more inclined to take a personal interest in the appearance of their engine.
Jon had already done a marvellous job equipping the loco with a new chassis and cab detail so the model deserved a special finish.
I’m hoping he’ll be pleased with this job!
