    Hi Jim
    I think it’s the same beast your modelling with the yellow livery you’re after. Excellent modelling as always

    Hi Neil

    That’s the livery I have plenty of pics of, however there’s a rumour that some were plain yellow (they were at other sites). The treatment of the black stripes on the cab front seem to have varied from loco to loco.

    Interestingly the Judith Edge kit is only suitable for number 3 onwards. Number one was quite a bit different to the others. With a different cab. No boxes on the footplate and cut out bufferbeams like in your picture. Number 2 has the cut out bufferbeams (obviously) but seems to be a standard body (there’s a picture towards the end of the workings that show it with oval buffers at the cab end.

    Another slight oddity is that the chevrons on the bonnet front are the opposite way up to the ones on the cab.

    Nothing’s ever standard is it?
