Neoprene Rubber

Brewhouse Quay: to the right, the latest scratchbuilt warehouse in the BQ saga (think of it as satellite telly, you can tune to another channel if you're as bored as I am).

I had to photograph a rather nice china clay works earlier today for the popular press and needed to dig out a small diesel loco in the form of this Bachmann 03 (or is it an 04?). With hindsight, it actually looks rather good here on the wharf.

I bought this loco about 10 years ago and after seeing a real one at the Bucks Railway Centre decided to repaint and renumber this loco loco to reflect the trip there at the the time.

The shiny blue outfit of the driver is simply down to the fact that he is a tad kinky and decided to get a set of engineer's attire in shiny 99.98% waterproof neoprene rubber. Well, that's my excuse for that fact that I cannot be bothered to repaint or replace the saucy little chap.
