Almost a full house of Wychminster locomotives – 4510, 3399 and 2357 on shed; 4815 on the Evesham autotrain in the bay; 3714 on an express to Birmingham in the main; 7792 with a brake van in the goods yard.
4815 – from Tower Brass and bought on a visit to their shop in Blackpool in July 2011. Not what I had in mind as it’s slightly too late for my period; however I’m easily led. Lightly weathered (the only one of my locomotives that is so it stands out a bit!). Reasonable runner although the trailing wheels have a tendency to seize up on their plunger pick-ups unless kept lubricated.
Another view of 4815 and its auto-trailer at the end of Platform 1 – not its usual habitat so must have been allowed there as a treat. This locomotive is the only one in my collection to have been weathered.
Ten months ago, no scenic backdrop, no ballast, rails and water crane unpainted. So some progress since then.
Too many locomotives for a small station – and a drunken driver!
4815, GWR 0-4-2T with auto-coach at the end of Platform 1. 4815 is from Tower Brass and was painted by them. Station building is Abbotsbury from Invertrain. Station lamps from Duncan models. Platform is scratchbuilt – I don’t make everything from kits! Train is destined for Evesham.
