LONDON ROAD MODELS LNER B16/1

With the addition of brakes, footplate steps, mechanical lubricators, then this second build of the London Road Models B16/1 kit is nearing completion. After the addition of the cab handrails, steam reverser, brake linkage, more cab details, etc. then both B16/1 models will be painted in British Railways mixed traffic lined black and then suitably weathered.

I think this London Road Models kit does capture the essence of these locomotives very well, though this kit is not for the inexperienced builder.

Big and heavy they certainly were; smelly and noisy they could be; dirty and unkempt oft times they were but they were lovely things these steam locomotives!

Cheers

And when the B16/1's are done, then I have this to finish painting.

Another painting, which is very much born of a railway heritage, is this one, done a few years ago. Based on a 1934 LMS Railway poster, this one is called 'Evening Sailing' and portrays the LMS Railway's SS Picard setting sail from Tilbury for Dunkerque on a cold clear winter's evening, borne on a sea of light.

Now back to the locomotives!
