I show off my White Metal kit of a Southern Railway D1 4-4-0 which unbelievably I bought from Hattons second hand department. Advertised as a “non runner” I took the plunge and bought her. Finished in a high gloss green she was indeed a “non runner” and some friends with more knowledge and skill than I have got her running again. The loco had been fitted with a K’s motor which were never the best and had a poor reputation. However I will stick with it for the moment but an investment in a more up to date motor and gearbox in the future will be needed to bring her right up to scratch. She is seen hauling one of the fantastic Bachmann “birdcage sets”. Thankyou for watching my channel.
