Please can you or anybody else tell me what this is?! I have had this model in my collection since I was young, but I have no idea what it is, or even where it came from.

Some background on this model would be much appreciated. Thanks. :)


Lima Class 08/09 Shunter manufactured 1978, and the livery is based on a L.M.S. Shunter of the 1940's.

Thanks for the explanation K9-70.

Manufactured 1978 :shock:

Nobody in my family can tell me how this model came into my possesion and I certainly have no idea. Still nice to have a model that is almost a decade older than myself. 8)

*thud* (either my jaw or me fainting I'll let you decide) but this layout, is the joint best layout i have seen in my whole 15 years alive, the only other that is even close to this is Pendon and that is exseptional.

That wagon (Pugh & Co.) is a limited edition and is now adays quite a rariety 500 were made in the 70/80's and it was the 1st wagon that hornby used a certain type of painting on (the type escapes me at the moment along with all other words, this is INCREDIBLE)
A layout is never finished, it's just a shortage of ideas or time.

Oh and if you come across my poorly layout somewhere (guess page 8 onwards) please bump it and I might do an update (or a non-update possibly).

Thanks
