Lord Of The Manor….?

David N. recently test steamed his lovely Manor class.  He kindly sent this short video of it on the test stand & a couple of photographs of the model in his workshop:

The attention to detail & quality of build is a credit to David.  A couple of years ago he gave a presentation on how he was making the flared side sheets to the tender.

Even on test the locomotive has that Great Western ‘bark’ which they were known for.

We look forward to seeing the locomotive running around the ‘Newliston’ circuit at Almondell one of these days!
