Starting a new thread hear as it changing the subject from the original

DougN has asked if I have any pictures of NER G6 044t ex BTP tank no 672 withdrawn in 1929.
I only have the 2 pictures of this engine both taken on the same side.
672 York circa 1928

672 Unknown station

Absolutely Brilliant Jeremy!

These show more details than I was hoping for. Dare I say one that I had not really looked deeply into, the push pull gear to the front/ back bufferbeams. The photos in the RCTS and BRJ 41 both have side on views, the 3/4 view shows the push pull gear mounted through the buffer beam.

These photos also include a better view of the Westinghouse pump pipework which will be a challenge for the weekend. Then there is the round "washers" and the control gear on the buffer beams... which also need 4 rivets and 4 times... 2 front 2 rear. I am not sure if it is possible to make the Universal joint looking ends. Nothing but a challenge to scratch build!

thanks again

Still not doing enough modelling
