Ian Forsyth is currently making some industrial locos for his layout. This is a Southeastern Finecast model of an ex Taff Vale 0-6-2T loco that was sold onto the National Coal Board in 1931 and worked on their Lambton Colliery network in the North East. It has a whitemetal body and nickel silver etched chassis, Markits wheels, Mashima motor and a Comet 50:1 gearbox. The original bunker and cab have been removed and replaced by a Lambton style bunker and cab in plasticard. No drawings of the prototype were available so he has worked from several photographs and also from a friend’s model. The buffer beams have also been modified. She will be finished off as NCB No 52 and painted black.
