TYPE 1 MAIN LINE LOCOMOTIVES (Class 14 to Class 20)

Class 14


Class 14 - Morfa Mawr D9508 (circa 1968). Heljan/Hattons model, a reasonable amount of work was carried out on this loco, but well worth the work I feel. The cut out on the buffer beam where the coupling came through was filled with plasticard and filler, but whilst I did this the buffer beam protrudes to far forward. So I have cut them off first and moved them and the front of the footplate back to a more prototypical position, this does mean you loose those ghastly working lights, but this was not a problem to me personally, I also filled the gap between the buffer beam and steps with a piece of plasticard, which seemed to be missing at one end. Other work carried out included moving up the rainstrip on the cab roof, smoothing the rivet detail around the cab windows to be less prominent and filling the indent on the engine room door, a modification not carried to all the class. Numbers were supplied by Cambridge Custom Transfers and the EM wheelset Is the Ultrascale conversion.
