Loco crews for a mate.


Post by Pannier Tank » Sat Feb 09, 2019 10:15 am

Arriving at my friends house, to do some more work on his lay out, I discovers 5 figures on the work bench. They were loco crew, which it transpired had been strategically placed for me to find in the hope that they would get painted

Little did I realise just how much trouble they were going to be when I took them home with me to paint.

The figures are nicely made and in very convincing poses and every thing was going well until my wife let it slip that they were not for my lay out and were not going to be crewing WR loco's but were in fact going to be lumbered with driving/firing ex LMS stock!
Next morning they were all missing, they had all ran off and hidden. Luckily one of my Whippets found them on her bed and they were very quickly rounded up and put under the brush.

They are now secured with Blu Tack and awaiting their journey home.

A lucky escape :D
