With the new line laid and the track on order to complete the loop, I fancied a bit of work on my favourite loco. It had gotten just a little neglected and had a slight dust look. So I have given it a clean and a wash with diluted satin varnish just to lift the paint work to an oily clean look. It only took half an hour and was worth the effort as I was rewarded with a break in the clouds to take some pictures :)
I appreciate I'm bias and maybe because she is scratchbuilt, but I like her !
