Posh Hotspur

Well, as promised we bring you at last, an update on 'Hotspur' now that most of the scheduled (and some unscheduled!) work has been completed. As you can see from the photos, the loco now carries her side tanks once again which completely alter her appearance and we have obtained some 'ALR' decals which have now been applied to the tender. Our 'head' painter, Barry, (no he doesn't paint heads, just locos and things!) has been busy repainting the loco whenever he could get possession of it for any length of time, and, we are told, all is now just about done! (well almost, just inside the cab to do !!!!) She does look smart and is going well....
