I’ve been working in the big bad city down south for a few weeks now but I thought I’d update you on some nameplates I have hanging about ready for fitting.
Second some plates to turn my County into my favourite County (bar Yorkshire of course…!)
Third, the plates for my Modified Hall. I could go on about this. I just don’t think the Modified Halls should have been called Halls given how different they were. However, as they were I’ll have the one that was closest to my birthplace. This loco is famous for having been delivered in steam to the GWS in GW livery although it wasn’t built until after nationalisation so mine is in early BR livery.
Finally Cornubia to allow me to represent a curvy framed Dukedog although it actually is a pure Duke and remained so until scrapped. Cornubia is also the Latin name for Cornwall, my family home.
So in essence, to run on Penlowry, a loco has to have meaning to me. Another loco I have planned was based at Gloucester Horton Road (where the Patriarch did his illegal trainspotting) until scrapped, but that story is for another time.
