GWR Tender Locomotives Part 1

A selection of the ongoing project to build every class of GWR locomotive. Some where along the line I ended up with 4 Lima Kings in a job lot, 2 of which were rebuilt as standard and the 3rd became the odd looking 1930's streamlined locomotive. The 47xx in the last photograph uses one of the King boilers, two Mainline 43xx chassis and body, plus a Hornby tender. It's quite a Frankenstein but prototypical of the latest new build announced last month by Didcot.

Some of the locomotives pictured have been photographed before lining, handrails and painting.
