The real factory is called Formrite Tool and Gauge and produces jig and tool stuff plus special purpose machines.
My factory will be called "Peak Enterprise Ltd" and will be a manufacturer of special purpose railway equipment.

Good to see the 40 out on driver training.
Shouldn't be too long now before the drivers are passed out :D

Actually the truth is that the driver is past to drive 37's and thought that the 40 was a 37!
The shed master has been trying to pull a fast one! :twisted:
(I actually read that this happened in real life. It was in one of them driver reminiscing books).

Class 40

Class 37

The 40 was longer and more powerful than the 37 and had 4 axles per bogie, the extra ones unpowered so was a 1CO-CO1 instead of a CO-CO as the 37 was :wink:

The drivers at "Slightly" have not seen a 40 before.
They all thought it was a 37 after all it had a long nose.
Only a few of the drivers had seen a 37 anyway and it sounded different to the Sulzers that were normally on shed!
Big Jim the fitter said it was an English Electric type 3 and If Big Jim said so it must be!

The fence is a, or should I say several Ratio plastic kits.
Very nice simple effective kit I would recommend it.
Weathered by painting with matt black humbrol paint and wiping it off with a downward wipe of a paper towel.
