Making progress... 4 of 5

Just a short update on this locomotive.  It's an M&L GWR 1076 (or "Buffalo") saddle tank.  It was also the first or second P4 locomotive that I built, at the age of 18 or so.

Over the years it has got a little battered, so it is being "refreshed".  That includes doing a decent job of painting the cab fittings.  I found an excellent picture on the website of the GWS, and used that to prepare the cab.  The cab itself is now and authentic green, which I never knew at the time that the model was built!

This will never be a "state of the art model" but I really like it for sentimental value :-)
