It was a lucky find actually, as I recently found out that at some point in 1963, 3 members of the class were shedded at St Blazey with 75005 herself being recorded as working the North Cornwall line at some point in '64. (75005 was a Yeovil Town loco from '65, so it will be interesting to see whether or not it has the 83E shed code).


:D You got it too! :D


I did! 8)

I just need to find out what rolling stock to use. I'm thinking maybe BR mk1's in choc and cream?

I can't remember the last time I got some model rail stuff for Christmas. :(

Before I start buying the coaches though, I've got to get the front bogey fixed - The front wheel is very stiff, and it keeps derailing every time it comes to a bend (3rd radius)

Oh I don't know - I can't imagine there being much difference if it came out as a stand alone model from say, Corgi.
