Shunting at 'Burtle

SDJR 7F 2-8-0 No. 53809 is captured on a stinking hot day in the summer of 1961 shunting at Catcott Burtle.

The loco is of course the new Bachmann SDJR 7F and is seen here after stage one of a little weathering. In due course I'll add some more colour washes, lamps and a crew. Chuff chuff buffs from Tunbridge Wells will notice that the tablet catcher is now in the retracted position too.

You'll be able to see this locomotive and layout on Saturday 15 January 2011 at the Astolat Model Railway Circle Exhibition in Guildford, Surrey.

  1. I love it how no matter how many times you take a photo of this little layout, it's still interesting. A testament to your skills sir.

    That loco is really nice, and i'm not even that interested in British locomotives.
