The Wardrobe on wheels is finished


The HGLW kit for a Wittenberg Schafer loco is complete, and I've really enjoyed building it. As you'll see, I have picked an ugly livery for this less than beautiful loco - all the brightly coloured versions I've seen look a bit too VW campervan to me. This is an industrial machine after all. 

A full build will appear in September's issue of Garden Rail, out on on the 8th August.

As an industrial engine, the front is just crying out for wasp strips. Just saying.

And those cries will go unheard. I hate painting wasp stripes! (Although it's not a bad idea)
