Mainline LMS brake

Mainline LMS brake
The second of the 'older' style parcels models for Hopwood. This Mainline model must be the thick end of 40 years old (I can't recall if Hornby or Bachmann have re-released it). Found on a s/h stall a few months back. A couple of small repairs have been done and now a weathering finish. I can't say I'm overly happy with it, but it'll do for now and joins the Dapol, ex Wrenn fruit D.

  1. I had one of these at some point in the early 1980s...lovely model! I sometimes think these older items of RTR capture the character of their prototypes more faithfully than the more recent stuff with all the wonky handrails and flush glazing that looks like the bottom of a milk bottle but such is progress (allegedly).
