009 locomotives

009 locomotives Miles and Susan perched almost coupled on the throat at Garn.
With chimney and brass roof superglued on and a whiff of Halfords Premium Primer blown over the loco and next door's roses, I found it hard to resist posing the pair together. Both from the same root of Ibertren chassis, Chivers front ends, and plastic rears and footplates. Just whistle and steps etc to go on before a final dirty paint job.

This has been a lot of fun, as has the parallel discussion on cab door heights via email, and cheap too. The original kit and chassis were bought for £9 and £12 respectively in 1991 and this would be their third layout. Plus a few pence worth of plastic and about five hours of fiddling. But it's a hobby ain't it?
