I love them. Brilliant detailing as usual from you Peter. You do set high standards for us, which one day I may get to achieve.

The rivet detail really makes this model! I love the great western detailing on the payload wagon.

I'm slightly bemused by the livery of the load wagon. I realise that the BURPS is a preservation line and being your railway Rule 1 applies, but surely no preservation group would paint a GWR vehicle in a greenish shade, with a loco livery style "Great Western" and none of its correct wagon markings!

You can't please everyone!

The next one will be pink!

I have a Grand Daughter who will be well-impressed, if it is, Peter!

Following the principle that there is a prototype for everything..........

The loco is now running in preservation, but the preservation group don't have a sense of humour and have repainted it into something resembling the old VR blue and gold livery.
