GWR Tank Engine Collection Part 1

A selection of the on going collection of GWR tank engines. The aim at the beginning was to scratch build an ex Taff Vale GWR Tank on the remains of an LNER J72 I found in a junk shop. With the success of this build I began a few more, slowly working through the list of GWR tank engines. My long term aim is to have every class of locomotive, an ambitious task but useful when one day I build Laira and Plymouth in 00.

Some of the models below have since had hand rails, couplings, decals and a light weathering.
